Can Lara Croft Survive Dead by Daylight This July?

Disclaimer:

This is an article on a forthcoming event in a game that contains strong elements of horror, strong profanity and graphic violence, including blood and gore. Reader discretion is advised.

A rumour speculating the appearance of Lara Croft from the Tomb Raider franchise in a yet another crossover event in Dead by Daylight spawned during the Twisted Masquerade Event. This rumour was later confirmed as one daring gamer can tell by a few promotional clips on social media and some footage of beta testing for Croft’s strive to…you guessed it! Survive! It looks like ijug’s mod of the iconic archaeologist in the game he showcased back in December 2021 has predicted the future and so has my prediction that she would eventually make an appearance in an event due to how unsettling and gruesome her deaths are in the Survivor timeline trilogy. Although I am thrilled that another prediction of mine has come true, I am nervous for one of my all-time favourite video game characters as she will play the role of a new Survivor in Dead by Daylight later this month. In the meantime, Aestri Yazar maintains the role of a Survivor as Vecna keeps on killing as a Killer for fans of Dungeons & Dragons in the survival horror game that has spooked players for eight years.

You may be thinking that her forthcoming appearance in Dead by Daylight is not really needed as you can already customise a Survivor to look a lot like her with the right features, especially the brunette low ponytail. Nonetheless, you cannot deny the thrill of THE Lara Croft officially becoming a Survivor. Too scared to play as her in a survival horror game this month? You can look forward to nurturing your campsite throughout the rest of this Summer in Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp if you consider yourself an animal crosser instead.

The younger and more emotionally vulnerable but ultimately courageous incarnation of Ms. Croft from the reboot that was launched in 2013 is rendered in all her strength and beauty in The Fog. The one who will guide her through her most horrifying journey yet must help her uncover treasures in chests and cooperate with other Survivors, such as Ellen Ripley from the Alien franchise and Alan Wake from the game with the same name. It would be quite bizarre to see her get assassinated by Chucky from the Child’s Play franchise, Michael Myers from the Halloween films or Naughty Bear from the game with the same name. Nevertheless, Croft’s survival instincts in the grittiness and suspenseful nature of Dead by Daylight can be considered much more fitting and a little more in character than her building and destroying houses during a storm in the colourful world of Fortnite. As terrified as I am for my girl whose goal is to triumph against the Killer with three fellow Survivors, I am still as proud of her for being a special guest in Dead by Daylight as I was proud of all three incarnations her for being part of the second chapter of the sixth season of Fortnite: Battle Royale back in Spring 2021.

Still too scared to join Lara Croft in Dead by Daylight after the beta testing for her appearance? Feel free to set an entirely different mood by diving into Crab God instead. Admittedly, the crossover trend in Dead by Daylight is not as “forced” as many crossovers in Fortnite: Battle Royale due to it all being centred on horror. What could be next? The Slender Man becoming a new Killer in the game? Well, that could be the case if the concept was not hindered by the risk of disrespecting the lore of the mythical icon and the horrific impact a certain incident that happened in real life left on a community a decade ago. Crusaders of the Castlevania series are sure to stay alert this August after Ms. Croft’s determination to survive on the 16th of July. As hardened as a modernised “classic” incarnation of her was in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II, Call of Duty: Warzone 2.0 and Call of Duty: Warzone Mobile nearly a year ago, can the younger incarnation from the first game in the Survivor timeline survive in Dead by Daylight this year?

And keep an eye out for her new character growth in Tomb Raider: The Legend Of Lara Croft on Netflix this October! In all seriousness, even after the primes of popular creepypastas, we need to keep respecting boundaries and ensuring that others, especially minors are safe when it comes to showing admiration for horror as it is creativity, not reality.
