Set off on a Tomb Raider adventure for free
The new adventures of Lara Croft are on a pretty good discount today. The rebooted Tomb Raider trilogy is today’s Epic Games Store freebie, with all three of the new Tomb Raider titles available to download and keep.
That includes 2013’s Tomb Raider and its sequels Rise of the Tomb Raider and Shadow of the Tomb Raider. Each version is the “definitive” or full collection of the series, so you’ll also be getting all the additional content too. From extra costumes to new challenge tombs, that’s a lot of surviving and tomb raiding.
This is part of Epic’s ongoing holiday celebration festivities, with free games going up every day. The past few days have had some extremely good gets, like the automated RPG Loop Hero and wacky, zany couch co-op adventure Moving Out. This three-for-one deal is a pretty big one though, running from now through Jan. 6. Then the next freebie, Gods Will Fall, will arrive.
And those Tomb Raider games are pretty solid. The re-envisioning of Lara Croft’s journey made for an excellent action-adventure game in 2013’s self-titled reboot. Then in Rise of the Tomb Raider, we saw more puzzles, more challenges, and some interesting survival elements incorporated for those looking for a good challenge. And even though I’m not personally the hugest fan of Shadow of the Tomb Raider, it did have its moments.
Though we haven’t seen much of Lara since that latest entry in 2018, it’ll be fun to have an excuse to jump back into these reboots and see how the new version of Lara Croft evolved through the trilogy. For the low, low price of free, it’s hard to look down on a deal like this. Find all three on the Epic Games Store for PC here.
