The New "Tomb Raider" Trailer Focuses On Lara Croft's Mental Health

Set in Lara Croft's therapist's office, the trailer shows how the Tomb Raider has been "pushed to her physical and mental limits".

"I think we're making progress in these sessions," the man continues, and it becomes clear the man is actually Croft's therapist, who she's been seeing on a regular basis.

He mentions that Croft's "flashbacks" have stopped, but he still has concerns. At the mention of "flashbacks" we're showed footage from 2013's Tomb Raider.

Throughout the trailer, her therapist's words of advice and assessment of her mental state are juxtaposed with Lara in the wild, fighting for survival.

His words become even more absurd as he tells Lara he'd like to know she's "taking care of herself" as we then flashback to see her shooting some guy in the head with an arrow.

Her therapist continues talking, telling her that many who have experienced trauma become stuck, but that there are "other types of people" and asks Lara: "Do you know what happens to them?"
