In a new video from Square Enix, we’re given a new look at how Lara Croft has been upgraded for Xbox One and PlayStation 4. With voice over from Tomb Raider Definitive Edition Scot Amos, you’ll see the updates to Lara’s face, hair, and skin, along with the additional tricks used to make her seem more integrated with the environment.

The inclusion of additional lighting effects, mud, blood and sweat, and little physics touches like the climbing axe swinging have all been added for this new version. Tomb Raider Definitive Edition will arrive on January 28. It will include all of the previously available DLC, which is largely confined to the game’s multiplayer mode.
