Play the demo for Rise of the Tomb Raider on Xbox One right now

Rise of the Tomb Raider may easily be my “Game of the Year” at this point, and if you have not yet purchased it or may be on the fence, Microsoft is hoping to entice you with a demo of the game that you can download and install here.

The trial demo will take 21GB on your hard drive and is available right now. Rise of the Tomb Raider has been very well reviewed by many outlets and I personally implore any Xbox One owner to give the demo a try.
