A separate YouTube video also shows off the use of eye-tracking, which is compatible with Tobii Gaming’s signature equipment. Game experience researcher at Tobii, Anders Frank, explains how the technology works to complement other Shadow of the Tomb Raider Xbox One X enhancements. There are two modes in-game. The first, known as “Awareness,” tracks your eye movement and highlights important things that are worth knowing.
