26 – Stepping out of the Shadow of the Tomb Raider


This ‘Bit Beyond’ celebrates the latest outing of everyone’s favourite double-gun-toting treasure hunter.

In Shadow of the Tomb Raider, Lara Croft’s motivation, inner conflict and aggression are explored as never before. Probably because of the amazing work from the game’s lead writer – Jill Murray.

Lara jumps impossibly far, hangs from the thinnest crevice, uses that bow to deadly effect and has multiple conversations with female characters about important matters like, oh you know, the destruction of the world and the Lara-caused apocalypse.

This one’s for the players – and the girls.
