Lara also brings with her a new, limited time mode to Brawlhalla: Temple Climb. This new mode ups the ante by forcing players to keep moving as they fight against the backdrop of a continually rising arena. All in a day's work for gaming's most popular archaeologist.
Speaking of arenas, Ubisoft has also introduced a new map, Temple Ruins, alongside bonus login Gold as part of the patch, in addition to a number of quality-of-life features and hotfixes designed to make Brawlhalla even more enjoyable for vested fans and newcomers alike.
Lara isn't the first crossover recruit to the Brawlhalla arena, which has already seen the likes of Rayman, Shovel Knight, and a number of WWE superstars (opens in new tab) enter the battle in recent years. It is, however, another product of the increasingly strengthened ties between Ubisoft and Tomb Raider franchise holder Square Enix, who have teamed up before to bring Final Fantasy-themed quests to Assassin's Creed.
