The full Trailer of the Shadow of the Tomb Raider gives us a look around the hub city of Paititi where Lara Croft enter deep in Central American jungle as she is trapped  around on a squad of goons from Trinity(bad guys). ). Her calculated takedowns are disturbed with scenes of a man preparing to sacrifice a child with a ritual dagger. With the Trinity goons divided out, Lara leaps, jumps, climbs, and almost drown on her way to the peak of a temple. Finally the two threads twist together as Lara saves the child, but there is an unusual, unsatisfactory vibe as Lara walks out to see a crowd of people gathered at the base of the temple with a dramatic solar eclipse in the distance.
