Microsoft Challenge YouTubers To Be Real Life Tomb Raiders

By Adam Cook

File this one under "kinda cool marketing-type things", but Microsoft has sent four YouTubers to Siberia for 48 hours in celebration of the release of Rise of the Tomb Raider, and under the guise of challenging them to survive like Lara Croft.

They'll be climbing rocks, hiking up mountains in blizzard conditions, and more. The YouTubers doing this all are Project Syndicate, Oli White, Jade Jolie, and Yammy xox.

After that, there's going to be a survival billboard on the 12th November, whereby fans can vote on the weather conditions that Jade Jolie will be tested against. You can watch that via Twitch, here.

Rise of the Tomb Raider is out this Friday, incidentally, and it's really bloody good.
