Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Introduces Classic Lara Croft Skin
Call of Duty is getting a little Lara Croft action, as the iconic heroine arrives in the FPS game in the form of a classic skin, hinting at a possible return for the Tomb Raider. While we’re not quite at the point where we can expect a full-blown Lara Croft in Call of Duty crossover, this development reassures fans that the iconic adventurer hasn’t been forgotten during the wait for a new game.
The Call of Duty Lara skin arrives alongside the announcement of the Modern Warfare 2 and Warzone crossover event, as the iconic Lara Croft character will be available to play as in the multiplayer game. As you can see from the image above, the skin showcases Lara in her iconic turquoise tank top and dual-wields pistols, evoking the spirit of the original Tomb Raider.
“Lara Croft is joining the fight! The iconic adventurer will be available for all Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 and Call of Duty: Warzone players beginning Sept. 8,” developer Infinity Ward says. “Equip Lara’s signature dual pistols, take aim, and fire!”
It’s certainly exciting to see Lara appear in the multiplayer game, and it’s no doubt a huge relief to fans that she hasn’t been forgotten about during the wait for the next Tomb Raider game. It also reassures us that the Survivor trilogy’s design hasn’t been completely scrapped, which is a major relief given how much fans adore the series’ aesthetics.
The Lara skin release is certainly exciting, but it doesn’t guarantee major news from the Tomb Raider website. We know that the next Tomb Raider is going to be a bit of a departure from the Survivor trilogy, and that developer Crystal Dynamics is working on a unique approach. While the upcoming game’s unique approach is certainly exciting, it’s hard not to hope for some sort of team of tomb raiders rather than just Lara herself.
Regardless, the Lara Croft skin release is certainly welcome, and we can look forward to embodying the iconic character in Call of Duty’s multiplayer experience starting September 8. We’re certainly excited to see Lara in the new game, but the skin release doesn’t guarantee further updates from the Tomb Raider website.
