    Scot Amos and Brenoch Adams on designing Lara for LCTOO:

    Scot Amos, Executive Producer for Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris, helped establish the framework for her look early on:

    - Lara couldn’t be a perfect replica of Tomb Raider 2013’s model

    - She also couldn’t be a Guardian of Light lookalike, as the model needed to take Definitive Edition sensibilities into play.

    - The team also wanted to have a “classic Croft” feel from the series origins, and stand apart as the mature “I’ve seen the world,” confident Lara.

    - Aiming for a modernized classic, they kept the homage of dual pistols, classic colors, and upgraded materials, fit, size, shape, and her refined face.


    Here’s what our Art Director, Brenoch Adams, had to say on creating the new Lara:

    “In creating Lara for Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris, we used the strengths of our character technology to bring a classic inspired Lara to a very high fidelity. Dual pistols, backpack, ponytail, and other features that represent Lara at a high level were essential to showing Lara as the traveled tomb raiding veteran. We used the same sophisticated materials for skin, hair, metal, and cloth that we use on 3rd person titles in an effort to present the highest quality possible. We are very excited to share the results, and think players will be amazed at the amount of detail and craft we’ve packed into this title.”

    - Brenoch Adams, Art Director

    Lara's ponytail is way more iconic than the 'tied-up-into-kinda-little-tiny-balls-classic kinda hair'.
