I disagree. They look like the same character (accounting for changes in lightening, detail, rendering) but the HFW model looks much older than what a six month difference should account for. Of course, Aloy never looked 18 in HZD either.
Something looks way off to me. Simply put, the facial structuring don't match between them.

Why is this being made into such a big deal? I remember people bitching they changed Lara Croft in Shadow of the Tomb raider. Stop nerd raging over dumb shit.
I actually don't remember that, and I also don't remember change in the character's appearance, you have any articles referencing that?

"Shadow of the Tomb Raider developer Eidos Montreal made minor texture and mesh changes to the character model of the titular Lara Croft. incel fans became outraged when it became clear *cough*was spelled out to them in a clickbaity youtube video*cough* it was done to advance feminism and the woke agenda writ large. we will update you as this story develops."

So fake news about fake people being angry about a fictional character? Got it.

I was genuinely interested in the actual story because I really don't remember anything like that happening. You should take some time out and cool down. Lashing out like this for no reason is not healthy.

I seem to recall something being said about her slight redesign back then, but a quick Google search doesn't bring up much controversy just some articles talking about the reasons behind the change.

thanks Dr. M76.

i think the redesign actually happened after the original Tomb Raider reboot from 2013. i forget if it was first seen in the Tomb Raider "definitive edition" that was released on Xbox One and PS4 or if that was done to fit with changes made for Rise of the Tomb Raider. i thought the original reboot version was a better looking character design.

Strange to see delays past the almighty holiday sales window into February. This isn't the game I've watched this happen to.

The original game was also released in Feb, a lot of games have started to launch outside the holiday window, too crowded a time for some.

It was the Definitive Edition. There was nothing sinister done, they just tried to make her face look more like the one you see in the opening CG movie. Unfortunately it turned out kind of funny looking in practice during gameplay. They did get rid of the sharp and angular features in her face as the series progressed, though, probably just trying to make her appear more empathetic since some voices on the internet have criticized her reboot character as being a mass murderer. I do agree that ultimately her look in 2013 Definitive Edition was the best.
