To celebrate the global debut of Rise of the Tomb Raider, renowned cosplayer Jenn Croft scaled the world’s highest bungee jump dressed as Lara Croft, the fearless heroine of the Tomb Raider series, before leaping from a 764-feet high platform off the iconic Macau Tower. Hurtling towards the ground at a speed of more than 120 km/h, Jenn’s stunt embodies the defining characteristics of Lara Croft, who is known for her courage and perseverance in overcoming challenges as the Tomb Raider.
Stepping into the shoes of Lara Croft, Jenn Croft scaled the AJ Hackett Macau Tower Bungee Jump in a Lara Croft costume of her own creation, complete with replicas of Lara’s customizable gear from Rise of the Tomb Raider. The jump was livestreamed to fans across Asia as part of the global launch celebration which featured never-before-seen footage from Rise of the Tomb Raider and opportunities to interact with Jenn Croft and Meagan Marie, the Senior Community Manager at Crystal Dynamics, the developers of Rise of the Tomb Raider to win prizes.
“Lara Croft is one of the most popular video game characters among female cosplayers, as well as the general cosplay community. She is a great inspiration for people to step out of their comfort zone, take a risk and achieve their goals. This jump is dedicated to all the passionate Lara Croft and Tomb Raider fans from Asia, as well as the rest of the world. I hope everyone will have as much fun playing Rise of the Tomb Raider as I did flying in mid-air,” said Jenn Croft.
Rise of the Tomb Raider is now available exclusively on Xbox, and can be ordered via the Microsoft store.
