Remaking Lara Croft for the Tomb Raider Definitive Edition
How far did Crystal Dynamics go in upgrading Lara Croft for the Tomb Raider Definitive Edition? Every single strand of hair on her head reacts to movement, wind, and other weather conditions.
In a new dev diary, Executive Producer Scot Amos breaks down the technology used to upgrade Tomb Raider for the Xbox One and PlayStation 4, and I’ve got to admit, the results look terrific. I played Tomb Raider, and loved it, on PC, so I feel like I already played an upgraded version, but still, Lara Croft has never looked better.
That’s because CD gave Lara a full model upgrade, essentially rebuilding the already rebuilt gaming icon from scratch and with 5X more pixels. The result is a far more realistic, albeit slightly different-looking, character. See for yourself in the dev diary below:
We’ll all get to see how the Tomb Raider Definitive Edition looks in action when it’s released next week, January 28.
