NEW LARA CROFT
IS DRIPPING POLYGONS

[ March 29th 2005 ]
Raider Chronicles has been privy to some top secret
pictures of newly designed Lara Croft, and although
we're not allowed to publish them right now, we'll
endeavour to put your minds at rest with a unanimous
"WOW!!!!" and a brief description. If only my
hands would stop shaking long enough to type.
Lara Croft model is looking damn fine! She has
a ton of new features and is positively dripping
polygons. Noticeable differences include subtle
changes to her face, which is a trifle shorter
and rounder than previous models. Also, she looks
more "human" rather than the normal cartoon character
stylisation we're used to seeing. Her hair is
now very "Rachel" from Friends, and very auburn
in colour. She still sports her trademark ponytail,
and has a communicator tucked into her right ear.
appears to have a curiously familiar object buckled
to her belt, along with her normal battery of
grenades and a pair of binoculars. Her backpack
is looking slightly smaller, and now sports two
side compartments which hold some form of canister.
Her twin pistols still hug her hips, and her boots
and socks have a modern look about them. The level
of overall detail is quite astonishing.
pictures are under embargo, which means we're
not allowed to publish them at the moment, but
stay tuned for a media explosion in the coming
weeks and prepare for maximum excitement. Kudos
to Crystal Dynamics, so far they've done a marvellous
job with Lara Croft, and fans of the franchise
will not be disappointed.
