The cover of the March edition of Game Informer, featuring Rise of the Tomb Raider

Rise of the Tomb Raider will get the cover treatment on the March edition of Game Informer magazine and we have a couple of gorgeous looking stills from the spread.

The sequel to the 2013 reboot of the franchise will feature the same open world exploration and survival skills Lara Croft donned, but this time in the frozen Siberian landscape. The cover of the March Game Informer will showcase nearly all of these as Croft faces off against a giant bear that has been gashed and cut. I wonder when PETA will step in and complain about this.

Lara Croft will learn once again how to survive in a new adventure.

Game Informer teases more images as part of a 12-page look at the new title, scheduled for release this holiday season on the Xbox One and Xbox 360 consoles. Due to Microsoft Studios handling the publications of this game, it will be a timed exclusive to Microsoft consoles. Various online sources state that Rise of the Tomb Raider will be coming to other consoles but “at an unspecified time.”

The Tomb Raider reboot was one of my favorite titles from 2013 and I’ve been eager to play Rise of the Tomb Raider since its announcement. Do these photos make you more excited to play the game? What do you think about Microsoft Studios making this a timed exclusive for their consoles?
