Croft Manor will be available through Fortnite Creative later this month.
Tomb Raider’s crossover with Fortnite is giving us more than a Lara Croft skin, as Square Enix today announced Croft Manor is coming to the popular battle royale. The sprawling castle will be available on March 23 at 10am ET – although it looks as if it’s only playable through Game Creative.
Square Enix’s iconic franchise turns 25 this year, and one of the many ways it’s celebrating is by bringing a surprising amount of Tomb Raider content to the game. The Lara Croft skins were enough on their own, but it seems fans of the series have more to look forward to later this month.
Details are scarce about the new location, but you can get a sneak peek at the building’s exterior in the announcement from this game :
Square Enix Presents
As announced during Square Enix Presents, Croft Manor is coming to the Game Creative as a playable adventure on March 23,” reads the official statement from Square Enix. “Alliance Studios has been hard at work on the hub and we can’t wait for you to play it! Be sure to check out the Game Creative and Fortnite.com on March 23 to learn more!”
Tomb Raider is doing more for its birthday than just coming to The Game, as you’ll also be able to pick up a cookbook inspired by Lara’s adventures, purchase the Definitive Survivor Trilogy, and at a later date you’ll be able to check out a Tomb Raider Netflix animated series and feature film.
There was also a promotion run by Square Enix that offered two Lara Croft games for free – although it has since expired.
The Croft Manor announcement was made during the first-ever Square Enix Presents event. Beyond Tomb Raider, the company announced expansions for Marvel’s Avengers, showed off more gameplay footage of Outriders, and announced a new mobile Hitman game.
Croft Manor will be arriving in Fortnite on March 23, although you’ll likely only get to see the new location in Creative Mode.
