Shadow of the Tomb Raider Won’t Show Lara Getting Her Dual Pistols

It's not happening just yet.

Lara Croft’s signature look, prior to the reboot trilogy, had her prominently flaunting dual pistols. In the reboot and its sequel, however, she has been seen with a bow. With Shadow of the Tomb Raider expected to cap off the trilogy, many have wondered if this game will depict the transition of the new Lara to the old one, with her taking o the dual pistols at some point or the other in this game.

Well, that won’t be happening in this game, at the very least. Speaking to the Official Xbox Magazine, Tomb Raider director Dan Bisson has shot down the possibility of that happening within this trilogy.

“No. I don’t want that,” he said. “For us this is her defining moment. We’re not going to put her in shorts with double-pistols, wearing a bikini — that’s not what this is. […] It’s because the twin pistols have an iconic thing about them. For this trilogy – not saying anything about later on, I don’t know about the future titles – but for this trilogy, the bow is still her signature weapon.”

He does seem to suggest that that moment may come in later games, but that also means that for fans who were hoping for it in this one, this news comes as disappointing. Unless he is explicitly lying because he wants the element of surprise maintained in this game.

Shadow of the Tomb Raider launches on September 14 for PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
