Super Smash Bros-Inspired Brawlhalla Adds New Crossover Character

Developers Blue Mammoth Games and Crystal Dynamics have teamed up to deliver a brand-new character to Brawlhalla’s roster. Lara Croft is the free-to-play fighter’s latest Epic Crossover, collaborations between Brawlhalla and big-name pop culture properties like Adventure Time and Steven Universe, bringing with her an additional game mode and stage as part of a new Tomb Raider in-game event that runs until March 16.

Lara Croft’s moveset mirrors that of Diana, the black-and-red clad hunter with high dexterity and speed; albeit with her own “unique signature attack designs, custom select animations, sound effects, two brand-new weapon skins, and a dedicated roster spot,” according to a press release. She comes equipped with her twin pistols and bow, and has a variety of skins that play off her two now-iconic looks: the classic blue-top-and-brown-shorts combo from the first Tomb Raider game in 1996 and her “survivor” getup seen in recent entries like Rise of the Tomb Raider and Shadow of the Tomb Raider.

Brawlhalla also gets a new mode thanks to Lara Croft’s inclusion called Temple Climb. It’s an endless-ascending, vertically-scrolling map that tasks you with climbing higher while defending yourself against both enemies and obstacles. There are also pressure plates that allow you to trip up the competition with cannonballs, spring spikes, flames, and more. Temple Climb will be available even after the Tomb Raider in-game event ends next month.

Lastly, the free-for-all game mode has another map added to its selection. With Lara Croft comes the Temple Ruins, a new multitiered map featuring plenty of places to spike and blow away your enemies.
