A quick appreciation post for Rise of the Tomb Raider’s outfits

I’ve been meaning to play Rise of the Tomb Raider for a while now, but only found the opportunity to buy it during the Steam sales celebrating the 20th anniversary of the series. I think we can all agree that a lot has changed since 1996, and not just in terms of graphics and narrative ambitions: it’s quite something to see Lara Croft finally getting the character development she deserves, and the famous franchise to shed its old sexist projections to embrace a new, truer woman. 

We’ve gone a long way, haven’t we?

Throughout the game, Lara can unlock a handful of outfits, and they’re all pretty cool, and more importantly, practical. It’s a different kind of eye candy, the right kind: it’s in the complex ruffles of cloth and layers of tanned leather, the wear and tear of seams and delicate modeling of fur. 

And while most of her inventory and arsenal of weapons are not visible on her person at all time, like most videogames of the same genre, Lara’s model is appropriately well-equipped:

Look at all those cool details: the pickaxes, pouches, walkie talkie, and other useful items dangling around…

Her desert tank top is probably the most revealing of her outfits, and it is delightfully normal. Exactly what I would expect our archaeologist to wear in warmer climate:

There are a lot more that could be shown, but I’ll end this short overview with my two favourite looks: 

Pretty badass, right?

None of those ever break my immersion either. They’re perfectly adapted to the environments of the game, and that’s about all I expect from a story-driven game with a main female protagonist. 

Practical, relevant clothing or armor.

It’s 2017 and we’re finally getting there.
