Shadow of the Tomb Raider Photo Mode Update Lets You Control How Buff Lara Is

Shadow of the Tomb Raider Photo Mode Update Lets You Control How Buff Lara Is

You can also demo Shadow of the Tomb Raider for free today.

In a year of photo modes Eidos may have just one-upped the competition thanks to a new update to Shadow of the Tomb Raider that lets players customize Lara Croft's buffness.

A new setting in the Shadow of the Tomb Raider photo mode called "muscle intensity" players can make it so that Lara's arms go from "Do you even lift?" to "Yeah I lift, just try me." It's great, actually and is definitely one of the more fun customization options for any photo mode.

It's been a good year for photo modes. God of War featured a particularly good one, but the year's best might have been Spider-Man PS4's which let players use custom, comic book-inspired frames and filters.

In related news, Shadow of the Tomb Raider is hosting a free trial available now on Xbox One, PS4, and PC. Players can download a demo that includes several early levels in the game, perhaps hoping to capitalize on Tomb Raider's Game Awards nominations amid reports that sales for the series has declined.
