We finally had our first look at Shadow of the Tomb Raider gameplay during Microsoft’s E3 conference.

The trailer was brief, and although it did feature Shadow of the Tomb Raider gameplay footage, it was mostly focused on revealing the story.

We got a decent look at one of the new main characters, and a better understanding of the conflict this time around. As we’ve previously learned at the reveal event, Lara is on a quest to stop a Mayan apocalypse from happening.

It also seems Lara’s friend Jonah has had his looks once again completely changed. Jonah, who is a sidekick of sorts to Lara, looks different in each of the three games despite him being the same character.

Catch the new trailer below.

Square Enix is hosting its own E3 show later, so we’ll hopefully get a stage demo for a better look at gameplay.

Shadow of the Tomb Raider is out September 14 on PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
