So what's next, following everything that happened Shadow of the Tomb Raider? Joining Lara on The Path Home both figuratively and ...

To me (and this is my own personal interpretation of things), this also means bringing those concepts that we've known and loved together. Take the Tactical Adventurer for example. It was the next and natural evolution of things. But it's a wholly different experience to start seeing Lara's shirt turn teal, or her getting red laces, etc. The tombs in the DLC have been some absolute top-notch, harkening back to more classic experiences. Seeing these manifestations, like a giant swiveling Caiman statue in DLC6 or Lara facing a Doppleganger-esque version of herself in DLC3 are love letters to Tomb Raider. And we have a lot more letters to write.

Girl, here are some crabs to sate your caiman hunger because I am ****ing stoked and on the verge of tears. Oh my Lara this is SOMETHING!

Edit: red laces too? Double guns and we have a deal!<3

I really dig the cyan classic-like recolor.

It’s a shame it’s still three weeks away though, the final wait will be very special.

The teal color is beautiful. However, it's a super dick move to include the only good outfit behind the season pass. What the hell is the matter with you developers? (Not specifically talking to Morrigan)

Thank you
And I'm so glad to have you interacting with us. It's really heartwarming

If I could like this post, I would. So please accept a instead. I've enjoyed all the tombs so far and felt they each gave a unique experience. So, well done to EM for pulling that off. Now I'll eagerly wait for whatever the 7th has to offer.

I take it, then, that we're going to be shown now what EM/CD thinks the criteria are for being the Tomb Raider. So far, all I've seen is a Tomb Raider, not the.
