Crystal Dynamics has produced a special video message from some of the many women who have brought Lara Croft to life over the years. The video was released on the official Tomb Raider blog as part of Tomb Raider 25, a celebration of 25 years of Lara Croft and Tomb Raider. The studio also announced donations to projects of particular interest.

"To honor these women and the many other writers, voice talent, actors, models, artists, game developers, and more who have contributed to Tomb Raider over 25 years, we will be making a $25,000 donation to the International Rescue Committee – a global humanitarian aid, relief, and development organization." the studio announced.

"An additional donation of $20,000 was made to Women for Women International in the name of Camilla Luddington as a special thank-you for the passion and phenomenal performance she brought to Lara Croft in the recent survivor trilogy (Tomb Raider, Rise of the Tomb Raider, Shadow of the Tomb Raider). Her award-winning performances laid the groundwork for the future of Tomb Raider and the unified timeline ahead of us."
