Tomb Raider’s Lara Croft Drops Into Fortnite Chapter 2’s Season 6
Fortnite’s newest season is now underway with Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 6: Primal. After getting plenty of crazy crossovers from the likes of Halo, God of War, Street Fighter, and even Alien, Epic Games’ giant franchise is showing no signs of stopping soon. To prove that, it looks like this season is already kicking off with another iconic guest, this time from Square Enix’s Tomb Raider franchise. That’s right, Lara Croft herself is now a playable character in Fortnite. Players can unlock her appearance from the reboot in the Season 6 Battle Pass. If they level up the pass and complete weekly challenges, they can even unlock her Anniversary and Classic looks. You can see her in action in the Battle Pass trailer below.
Like many other guests, Lara will also have access to several pieces of gear and emotes. This includes her Back Bling, which consists of a quiver of arrows and rope. Players can also unlock her Pry Axe Pickaxe, the Spelunker’s Special Contrail, the Evasive Maneuvers emote, the Salvaged Chute Glider, a banner spray, and an emoticon. You can check out the details here. This collaboration seems to be partly due to the Tomb Raider 25th anniversary, much like the upcoming Netflix series. It’s likely that we’ll be seeing much more of Lara Croft throughout the years, perhaps even appearing in other games.
