28 for TR1, and then a year older for each game until TRC.

I believe for TRC she was:
27- Rome
30- Russia
16- Black Isle
29- VCI

Core set her official birthday as 14th February 1968, making her 28 in 1996.

However the comics set her birth year as 1967, which match rumours that '67 was the original year for the games and that it was changed to '68 after the release of TR1. I did some searching to find a direct source for TR1 Lara being born in 1967, but all I got was threads on this forum discussing the year without saying where the information was from.

My old booklet stated she was 26 in TR1
And i remember reading somewhere, that in 2003 in AOD she's suppoused to be 33 years old.

But i'm not sure. It was a long time ago

28 I think
The month in which the game takes place isn't specified.

Also, if Underworld takes place in 2008 that would make her 40 yo.

Classic Lara was born in 1968 and all games take place in the year they were released in. So that makes Lara 28 in the first game. Legend, Anniversary and Underworld are set in the same universe / Crystal's interpretation of that universe so her birthday remains the same.

The Top Cow comics are not canon, just like Angelina's movies.
