Development studio Crystal Dynamics unveiled a brand new game play trailer for the upcoming "Rise of the Tomb Raider" game during the recent Xbox One Gamescon 2015 event.

Based on the clip, the game will utilize a more realistic type of game play with a wide range of action options for protagonist Lara Croft, Game Spot reported.

The trailer shows off the different ways Croft can take down her enemies. Players can either use stealth to their advantage or engage enemy forces in a direct manner.

Whichever method they choose, Crystal Dynamics explained that the skills they earn or master can be used to customize Croft's playing style.

For a stealth-based attack, Croft can go underwater or climb up trees to evade enemies. She can also use these environmental elements to drown her enemies or attack them from above. The main character can either engage in hand-to-hand combat through grappling techniques or use her knife to quietly kill enemy forces.

Another new addition to the game is the option for players to interact with corpses. In "Rise of the Tomb Raider," Croft can plant bombs or poison gas on a dead body. Once an enemy investigates the corpse, the bomb will detonate or the toxic gas will disperse.

Aside from stealth movements, the developers of the game also improved its artificial intelligence. Unlike in previous titles, enemy forces will look around and investigate first if they suspect something instead of immediately going after Croft.

Players can then use this to their advantage by shooting an arrow to misdirect the enemies' attention.

However, once she is detected, the game will go into full-action mode. Of course, Croft can turn to her guns to defend herself but she can also make weapons out of various items around her.

For example, she can create Molotov bombs using bottles and cans on the ground to take out groups of enemies.

"Rise of the Tomb Raider" is scheduled to come out for the Xbox 360 and Xbox One consoles on November 10.

For the game, Crystal Dynamics previously explained that it has a timed-exclusive deal with Microsoft, according to Gamerant. This simply means the game will first debut on the company's gaming platforms. It will then arrive for Sony's PlayStation 4 at a later date, which is expected to be during the fourth quarter of next year.

The game will also debut for the PC sometime during the first months of 2016.
