Tomb Raider: Underworld Cosplay: Lara Croft (Illyne) Cosplay 26 AUG 2012

Hands down one of the best Lara Croft cosplayers around, French cosplayer Illyne once again tackles this iconic female gaming character, grabbing her guns and strutting her stuff as the Lara Croft from the Tomb Raider: Underworld release.

The thrill seeking, gun toting archaeologist with a taste for adventure, Lara Croft returned in Tomb Raider: Underworld, released in 2008 for Eidos by development house Crystal Dynamics, who had previously produced Tomb Raider: Legend and Tomb Raider: Anniversary.

Underworld is the eighth instalment in the Tomb Raider game series, and its story continues on from the events in Tomb Raider: Legend, but in the process also addresses unexplained plot elements that came from the Tomb Raider: Anniversary remake of the original 1996 Tomb Raider release.

Again this action adventure platformer has Lara solving tricky puzzles, interacting with her environments and taking on a host of opponents and creatures with her trusty dual pistols, shotgun and submachine guns, and for a change, often doing all of this at once!

A new melee combat system was added and an interesting adrenaline moment system was introduced to replace the specific button press sequences that had littered the previous Crystal Dynamics’ games.

Once again Lara is pushed all over the place during the course of the adventure, with settings including the Mediterranean Sea, Niflheim, Coastal Thailand, England, Southern Mexico, Jan Mayen Island, the Andaman Sea and finally the Arctic Sea!

So in other words, just another day for the hard working Lara! ;)
