On the final day of 2021, prepare to say goodbye to a rough year with a truly epic collection of games from the rebooted Tomb Raider trilogy. All three games—Tomb Raider Game of the Year Edition, Rise of the Tomb Raider 20 Year Celebration, and Shadow of the Tomb Raider Definitive Edition—are now available to download for free from the Epic Games Store up to the first week of January 2022 only.
The Epic Games Store started out its 15 Days of Free Games last Dec. 16, giving away one game a day for 24 hours before switching to another game giveaway. And now it's ending the promotion with a bang by giving away all three rebooted Tomb Raider games for free for an extended period up to Jan. 7, 2022 at 12 a.m.
It's not every day that you get a chance to have a AAA game title for free, let alone three of them, but it's been a great December giveaway so far and the Tomb Raider reboot games are some of the best that the franchise has to offer.
Here's what you can get right now:
Tomb Raider Game of the Year Edition
Synopsis: Tomb Raider is a critically acclaimed action adventure that explores the intense and gritty origin story of Lara Croft and her ascent from a young woman to a hardened survivor. Armed only with raw instincts and the ability to push beyond the limits of human endurance, Lara must fight to unravel the dark history of a forgotten island to escape its relentless hold. The Game of the Year edition includes the Tomb of the Lost Adventurer, six single player outfits for Lara and four characters.
Rise of the Tomb Raider 20 Year Celebration
Synopsis: Rise of the Tomb Raider: 20 Year Celebration includes the base game and Season Pass featuring all-new content. Explore Croft Manor in the new “Blood Ties” story, then defend it against a zombie invasion in “Lara’s Nightmare.” Survive extreme conditions with a friend in the new online Co-Op Endurance mode, and brave the new “Extreme Survivor” difficulty. Also features an outfit and weapon inspired by Tomb Raider III, and five classic Lara skins. Existing DLC will challenge you to explore a new tomb that houses an ancient terror in Baba Yaga: The Temple of the Witch, and combat waves of infected predators in Cold Darkness Awakened.
Shadow of the Tomb Raider Definitive Edition
Synopsis: In Shadow of the Tomb Raider Definitive Edition experience the final chapter of Lara’s origin as she is forged into the Tomb Raider she is destined to be. Combining the base game, all seven DLC challenge tombs, as well as all downloadable weapons, outfits, and skills, Shadow of the Tomb Raider Definitive Edition is the ultimate way to experience Lara’s defining moment.
To avail of the games, all you need to do is sign up for a free Epic Games Store account here.
Once registered, download the Epic Games Store app on your PC desktop (sorry Mac users, these three titles are for Windows machines only), scroll down to the free games promo at the store page and click on the "Get" button on all three games' respective pages. This will tie the games to your account which you can check out in your Library page to download and install.
The Epic Games Store has spent the past couple of years giving away a free game every Thursday for a period of one week before changing out to another free-to-download game title. So, it's definitely worth signing up for a free account after this just for that.
