2021 will officially come to a close two days from now, and with that comes one final offer from the Epic Games Store. This time, the Epic Games Store has made all three games in the rebooted Tomb Raider series free to claim from today until January 6 at 10:00 a.m.
Specifically, the deal offers Tomb Raider: Game of the Year Edition, Rise of the Tomb Raider: 20 Year Celebration, and Shadow of the Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition. A deal like this during any time feels significant, but this one seems particularly appropriate, as 2021 marked Tomb Raider’s 25th anniversary.
A treasure trove of content
So, what do these special editions add on top of their original versions? In the case of Tomb Raider: Game of the Year Edition, it includes an extra tomb initially only available for those who pre-ordered the original release, as well as six multiplayer weapons, six single-player outfits, four extra characters, and eight multiplayer maps. Shadow of the Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition comes packed with seven challenge rooms, seven outfits, seven weapons, and seven skills. In the original version these came as DLC. Rise of the Tomb Raider had some of the most substantial DLC of the three, so naturally, the 20 Year Celebration edition provides the most significant perks compared to the base version. You get more than an hour of extra story content in the form of “Blood Ties,” as well as the “Extreme Survivor” difficulty mode.
Those who haven’t experienced the newest Tomb Raider games now have the perfect opportunity to do so thanks to the Epic Games Store’s free offer. It also serves as the perfect opportunity to celebrate the Tomb Raider series as a whole. Free offers of major gaming releases like this do not come often, so those with an Epic Games Store account should downloading these games as soon possible.
