Tomb Raider's Lara Croft Is Popping Up Everywhere Right Now 1

In the last 24 hours, Lara Croft has been confirmed as a survivor in asymmetrical horror game Dead by Daylight and as part of a crossover in martial arts battle royale Naraka: Bladepoint. The heroine, one of the most famous protagonists in PlayStation history, is clearly still popular – and franchise owner Embracer seems willing to license the character out to anyone interested.

Beginning from 16th July, Dead by Daylight players will be able to test out Ms Croft’s survival skills, as she faces her toughest test yet: the villainous Entity. “While stripped of her trusty bow and pistols, her greatest weapons remain intact,” the press release reveals. “Her unwavering tenacity, wealth of survival expertise, and bravery are represented with three unique Perks to balance the scales in her favour.”

Lara’s iconic outfit will also be available in Naraka: Bladepoint, as a new look for existing character Matari. That’s due out in August.

Elsewhere, the battle royale is doubling down on crossovers, with Geralt of Rivia from The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt set to be added as a fully playable character later this year. These two announcements come as the popular title celebrates its third anniversary, with more information to be announced in the coming months.
