Don’t mess with Lara Croft.

Microsoft and Crystal Dynamics showed off new new gameplay from Square Enix’s Rise of the Tomb Raider, which is coming first to the Xbox One, today at its Gamescom trade show briefing in Cologne, Germany. The new game footage shows Lara Croft at her killing best. Playing as Lara, you can get kills by moving stealthily through water or do a brutal takedown by jumping on enemies from above and dispatching them with a knife. You can distract enemies by throwing a bottle.

The “guerrilla combat” system also showed how you can take out multiple enemies with the new bow. The graphics and environments look really impressive. The trailer shows awesome lighting, shadows, fires, rainfall and other cool special effects.

It debuts on Nov. 13, 2015.
