Lara Croft, who first made herself know in 1996's Tomb Raider, is one of gaming's most recognisable and beloved characters. Spawning countless games, incarnations, spin-offs, and big-budget movies, she has become a household name to even those that don't know the games. Her most iconic look, white tank top, and green khaki shorts was released as a skin back at the start of Season 6, and now players can get a version of her that looks like she's been dipped in gold.
