There are many ways you can choose to celebrate the launch of your favourite game; but attempting to escape from Siberia probably isn’t one of them.

But that is the task that a group of video game-mad YouTubers took upon themselves – spending 48 hours in one of Russia’s harshest regions to see if they can survive, just like Lara Croft.

The reason for all this is that the new game, which is out on Friday, is set in Siberia (among other places).

So, YouTube stars Project Syndicate, Oli White, Jade Jolie and Yammy xox took up the challenge – which involved mountain climbing, hiking, archery and camping in the Siberian wilderness.

Thankfully, you don’t have to spend two days in one of the harshest climates on the planet in order to get hold of Rise of the Tomb Raider. The Xbox exclusive is out on Friday.
