Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 6 kicked off this morning in which battle royale fans saw the arrival of a refreshed map with some new locations and wild animals roaming about the place. With Season 6 being themed around the wilderness and survival, it makes sense to have one of the most adventurous tomb raider’s there is in video games introduced to Fortnite, Lara Croft. 

As we celebrate Lara “Tomb Raider” Croft’s 25th anniversary, Fortnite Season 6 adds the fearless archaeologist as a character into the game. Even though there have been rumours around this happening, we finally see Ms Croft in all of her glory.

Who is Lara Croft?

This may seem like a rather straight forward and simple question to many older and experienced gamers but there are some who may not know who this bad-ass woman is and why she’s in Fortnite and that’s fine, we are here to help. Lara Croft, first appearing in 1996, is the main protagonist of the video game franchise Tomb Raider who also happens to be an archaeologist who loves nothing more than taking her life into her own hands by venturing into dangerous and ancient tombs around the world.

How do you get Lara Croft in Fortnite?

To get the Lara Croft skin, you need to purchase the Fortnite Season 6 Battle Pass which will set you back 950 V-bucks. If you don’t fancy doing it that way you can also join Epic Games’ Crew subscription called, unsurprisingly, The Crew. This way, you get the Battle Pass for every Season that ticks over in Fortnite, along with other extras, and also 1,000 V-bucks in your pocket, too. The price to join ‘The Crew’ costs $11.99 every month.
