What is "unified" Lara Croft and why fans of the game talk about it
With the recent release of Tomb Raider Reloaded, fans have noticed a curious detail: the game is titled "Tomb Raider" rather than "Lara Croft." This indicates that this version of Lara Croft is now part of the main series, rather than a spin-off.
This concept of a "unified" Lara Croft has been building over the past few years, with the ending of Shadow of the Tomb Raider showing Winston serving tea and the London Scape Room featuring a statue of Lara in her classic outfit, but with the jade necklace from the latest games.

This idea of a unified Lara Croft could potentially have a significant impact on future games in the series. By combining the classic and modern versions of the character, developers have the opportunity to create a more complex and nuanced protagonist that appeals to fans old and new.
However, it remains to be seen how this concept will play out in future games. Will the games continue to focus on the gritty, realistic portrayal of Lara from the recent games, or will they incorporate more of the classic Tomb Raider elements? Only time will tell.
