The star of the Tomb Raider franchise, Lara Croft is the latest survivor being added to Dead by Daylight. Putting emphasis on the survivor label, her appearance is based on the 2013 reboot game, although without any of her weapons. It is unknown if skins based on earlier games will be added.

Lara’s perks have also been revealed. Finesse will allow vaults to be 20% faster while healthy. Hardened reveals the killer’s aura any time you would normally scream, after opening a chest or cleansing a totem. Finally, Specialist grants tokens that improve skill checks for generators. All these perks are named after elements of Lara’s skill tree in recent games. Hardened and Specialist are named after the skill tiers in the 2013 reboot while Finesse shares its name with a skill from Rise of the Tomb Raider.

Lara Croft is one of many video game crossovers that have appeared in Dead by Daylight, although this is the first to not be based on a horror franchise. In addition to previous franchises such as Resident Evil, Silent Hill and Alan Wake, Behaviour Interactive have announced that Castlevania will also be added at a later date.

Dead by Daylight is out now for PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S and Switch. Lara Croft will be added to the game on July 16, 2024.
