A glitch in Tomb Raider has been discovered that makes Lara Croft’s tank top look see-through. The glitch was discovered by Recostar from S3DGamerZone while playing the game in 3D on the PC. The video (see below) shows the glitch in action and a somewhat exposed Lara too. You can also read the gamer’s account of the glitch below.
Here is what Recostar had to say about the glitch:
It was right after we died from an explosion; we kept getting strange glitches. We had been to close to a gas exhaust and shot a flame arrow beside it causing Lara to die. When we came back into the game, water, shadows and lighting looked very odd. So we kept selecting re-load last check point hoping to solve this issue. For the most part everything looked ok after several re-loads, until we went to break a valve and I noticed her tank top looked funny in the light.
When I looked closer, I could see what appeared to be 2 nipples. We zoomed in to make sure that’s what they are (purely scientific lol). My only possible conclusion is that when they made Lara’s damaged explosion mesh, behind her tank top they jokingly put these 2 t marks were her nipples would be on purpose. They probably never thought that a glitch would remove the tank top overlay exposing this. Also, I noticed in the video right where Lara’s nipples are you can clearly see 2 huge and out of placed square pixels.
In the past, other games, like Heavy Rain and the full nudity glitch, have suffered from similar glitches, but it’s worth mentioning that Heavy Rain also had a sex scene and striptease too.
