A new trailer for Shadow of the Tomb Raider was shown in the Square Enix E3 presentation, highlighting Lara's new combat abilities.
Lara Croft is now effectively a murderous Batman, capable of swooping down on her enemies from above to string them up for an unpleasant death. She'll be able to distract enemies and chain stealth/surprise kills to make her even more deadly than ever. The kills are fairly violent too, with Lara firing arrows through skulls and slicing her victim's throats.

We got a glimpse of some new visual tech as well, as Lara can be see to get dirtier as she moves through muddy water and other filthy environments.
