Default Lara Should Own Multiple Properties

It's never been done, but she'd absolutely do it. I'd like to see a sleek sexy modern home since we already have the big antique monstrocity. Something lighter in Paris or Spain maybe. Doesn't have to be as huge as the Croft Manor, but it would be nice to see Lara using her money to expand her bases.

I wish they made her flat more iconic, but that was good enough. We never got to move around in it which is really the tragedy of rise since we got multiple views of it in the main menu and an epic cutscene with Ana. Could've been way more iconic if we just got to play it.

But another few properties are ripe for the icon treatment that the Croft manor (rarely) gets. But maybe people are probably scared that that means the Croft manor would be erased, but I'd like all her properties to be playable. Each one should have unique features. Maybe she gets one in America with a dock where you can get on your yacht. Something in Palm Beach Florida or somewhere you'd never expect Lara. I'd love to see her out of her element but still being quintessential Lara like a fish out of water.

Lara should own a personality first

Have you ever spoken to someone in real estate? Properties are their personality. ZING!

She does, or at least it's implied in TRU's PDA. I think she says something along the lines of having three manors.

Like CJ owning like 40+ houses across the entire state of San Andreas? Why?

Love the idea. I also vaguely remember Lara owning multiple mansions in the LAU universe was an established thing, although I can't remember where I read it and if it really is canon. It made me sad they didn't include the classic mansion in Anniversary, as that was a perfect opportunity to incorporate the Core house into the LAU story. Oh well. I'm personally not a fan of the Survivor manor since it vaguely resembles the LAU estate (the main hall is essentially the same just mirrored and tweaked around). I'd love for them to recreate the beach house from the alpha footage of Legend, that entire test level had such stunning visuals and aesthetic

Right now she owns Croft Manor, a very modest apartment in London and a hut in Paititi. I think she should own property on every continent, at the very least.

I cannot! 🤭

As for the idea of multiple properties, they should probably try to give her one consistent manor to explore first before even bothering to make MULTIPLE. We need a fully-realized manor with a gym and puzzles in the style of Anniversary/Legend and the classics.
