DC fans were pleasantly surprised to see Raven of Teen Titans fame added to the game, while older gamers smiled when seeing Fortnite’s version of Lara Croft aka Tomb Raider.
Fortnite: What Game is Lara Croft From?
To anyone who might be too young to remember, Lara Croft is one of gaming’s iconic female characters thanks to the Tomb Raider games from the original PlayStation.
Despite a few rough years, Lara Croft has made something of a comeback thanks to the recent reboot series from Crystal Dynamics and Square Enix, which also inspired a new live-action movie.
If not for games like Tomb Raider we wouldn’t have cinematic-style action games like Uncharted, which was almost called Dude Raider, so if that’s not an influence, I don’t know what is.
While it’s slightly disappointing that she’s not in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate (yet), seeing her in Fortnite is the next best thing, with some people thinking this game probably suits her better.
Yes, there are characters in Smash who use guns but it’s still not a great selling point, which is probably why Lara works better in Fortnite, where shooting is the most natural thing ever, next to meme dances.
Fortnite is available now on pretty much every gaming system available right now, including the PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, Nintendo Switch, PC, and mobile devices.
