This is an action game in which players assume the role of archaeologist Lara Croft as she attempts to stop a mysterious group known as Trinity.
This game contains infrequent depictions of gross violence towards human-like characters.
Players can explore jungles and tombs, solve puzzles, and engage in combat with enemy figures and animals.
Players use firearms (e.g., pistols, shotguns, machine guns), arrows, and an ice pick/ax to attack and kill enemies.
Combat is highlighted by screams of pain, realistic gunfire, and explosions. Some areas allow Lara to use stealth to sneak up behind her enemies before stabbing them in the head or chest.
Action is frequently accompanied by realistic blood effects, and some areas contain mutilated corpses on sacrificial altars, hanging from the ceiling, or piled in a cave.
Some of the deaths include her being impaled on poles when being dragged down rapids and being impaled on a spear trap in an ancient temple.
The reactions to the violence are realistic with her gasping for breath and struggling before the screen fades to black.
This game also contains the use of sexual expletives.
The words f**k, sh*t, and a*shole appear in the dialogue.

There are numerous adjustments made to gameplay, which is otherwise identical to Rising of the Tomb Raider. The controls for swimming have been revised, as Lara is able to hold her breath underwater for a longer period of time due to the introduction of air pockets. She has the ability to rappel down a cliff using her climbing ax and rope. Stealth is important, as Lara can disengage from combat when she escapes from enemies’ line of sight by camouflaging herself in mud, hiding in bushes, or blending into densely vegetated surfaces.

Like its predecessors, the game allows players to hunt wild animals, craft materials using resources collected, solve puzzles and seek out optional tombs and side quests. The game features larger tombs and more complex puzzles compared to previous installments in the reboot series. Players have the option to tailor their gameplay experience as exploration, puzzles and combat have their own difficulty settings. An Immersion Mode enables players to hear the background conversations of the locals in their native languages; when turned off the conversations are heard in the players’ chosen voice-over language.
