Our #TR25 festivities continue with an epic Fortnite collaboration! Journey forth in search of adventure in Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 6. Lara Croft joins the Fortnite family with multiple unlockable styles and gear in this season’s Battle Pass.
We’ve had a blast working with Epic to get classic and modern Croft content into the game, and are thrilled that she’s featured in the Battle Pass.
For those of you unfamiliar with how the Battle Pass system works, here is the intel:
Fortnite is a free-to-play, cross-platform game with multiple modes. The Battle Pass is specific to the “Battle Royale” mode.
You can buy the optional Chapter 2 Season 6 Battle Pass for 950 V-Bucks, which is roughly $10.
By purchasing and unlocking the Battle Pass, the XP you collect goes towards leveling up and unlocking cosmetic-only content. There are a variety of Weekly Challenges that reward XP, and you’ll also earn it just by playing matches! There are 100 levels to unlock in the Battle Pass.
Once you’ve unlocked an Outfit, it’s yours to keep and you can customize it with a variety of gear:
Back Bling: Cool looking accessories that – you guessed it – are wearable on the back of your character
Pickaxe: Used to harvest in-game resources for building or deal melee damage
Contrail: A bit of visual flare for your character as they freefall from the Battle Bus (your transportation to the island) at the start of each match
Gliders: Help you safely descend to the island after your freefall
Wraps: Customize the look of your weapons and vehicles
You can also choose a loading screen and music, a banner, a variety of emotes, emoticons, and sprays to use during your time on the Island.
After you’ve customized your character, you can save it to your Fortnite Locker to quickly access it/swap between looks before the start of a match.
As for TR goodies, here’s the scoop:
The Survival Lara Outfit and Survivor’s Pack Back Bling unlocks at level 15 of the Battle Pass.
Anniversary Lara is unlocked at level 22 of the Battle Pass. After unlocking her, you can access the new look by selecting Survival Lara from the outfit menu, and editing her style.
Classic Lara and her Backpack Back Bling – inspired by classic Core Design renders – will be unlockable by completing specific Battle Pass challenges throughout the season – a set number of challenges will become available each week.
As you level up the Battle Pass, you’ll also get access to other Tomb Raider themed goodies – the Pry Axe Pickaxe (Level 16), the Spelunker’s Special Contrail (level 17), the Evasive Maneuvers Emote (Level 18), the Salvaged Chute Glider (level 20), and a banner, spray, and emoticon.
You can choose between different game modes each match, including Solo, Duos, Squads, Team Rumble, and other limited time modes. For those of you new to Fortnite or Battle Royale games, we highly suggest that you start with Team Rumble. This mode is team-based and allows respawns. It’s a super fun and low-pressure way to learn Fortnite mechanics before moving your way up to your first solo Victory Royale.
That’s it for now! We’re so excited to see your clips and screenshots with Lara in action on the Island. Be sure to tag us on social so we can share them!
