Since yesterday, the clues left by Epic Games on its store indicate that a Tomb Raider game could be offered to players. However, the rumor indicated that Epic would not be satisfied with a game, and would have the idea to propose the last trilogy to date, consisting of Tomb Raider, Rise of the Tomb Raider, and Shadow of the Tomb Raider. Released in 2013, 2015 and 2018, they together form a new trilogy, designed by Crystal Dynamics.
At 5 p.m., Epic ended the speculation by formalizing the rumor. Yes, from today until January 6, 2023 at 5 p.m., players with an Epic Games Store account can claim Tomb Raider, Rise of the Tomb Raider: 20 Year Celebration, and Shadow of the Tomb Raider Definitive Edition without spending a single euro. The first is the Game of the Year version of the title, while the 20 Year edition includes the Season Pass as well as Blood Ties and Lara’s Nightmare content, which allows you to browse a new sequence and face … Zombies.
Finally, Shadow of the Tomb Raider Definitive Edition contains the base game, all 7 DLC Tomb Challenges, plus all downloadable weapons, outfits, and skills. Generally, the three titles were very well received, even if the staging does not allow this new trilogy to rise to the heights of Uncharted, yet inspired by the adventures of Lara Croft. However, it tackles new themes, and the beginning of the adventurer’s career. Darker, more violent, these three titles allow players to discover the events that made Lara Croft a seasoned warrior, and legendary tomb raider.
Note that from January 6, it’s Gods Will Fall, a roguelite integrating boss-rush mechanics, which will be offered free of charge. Interesting, the title fishing by the fact of not going to the end of its many good ideas.
