After the Endurance suffers a crash at the hands of a terrible storm, Lara is washed ashore a dark, stormy beach. While trying desperately to call for help to nearby survivors, who can’t hear her over the stormy weather, a mysterious man knocks her out and our story begins.

Once you gain control, swing Lara left and right with the analog stick until the hanging cocoon to the right catches fire. After this, swing Lara into the burning beam so she drops on the ground and onto a metal pipe.

Remove the pipe by tapping Square [PS3/PS4] or X [Xbox 360/Xbox One] and then stumble into the sacrificial chamber to grab a Torch from the side of the room.

Escape the cocoon and collect the torch from the sacrificial chamber.

Continue forward until you reach a dead end with some crates, which can be burned by holding Square/X to light them on fire, and then move forward. Head through the crack, then relight your torch at the fire since it went out as you moved through the waterfall, and then jump on the platform to your left and set fire to the beams to clear the way.

Move through the tunnel and a man will grab Lara’s leg, triggering the first QTE: Quickly wiggle the Left Analog to the left and right to push the enemy away.

Create a path by burning the debris and escape the savage by wiggle the L Analog.
