Rise of the Tomb Raider: 20 Year Celebration (until January 6th, 2022)

Rise of the Tomb Raider

The Rise of the Tomb Raider: 20 Year Celebration features the latest content from the Tomb Raider franchise. As part of the 20 Year Celebration, players can explore the Croft Manor and fight zombies in Lara’s Nightmare. The core gameplay is the same, but the new online Co-Op Endurance mode is something to brag out. Additionally, the game has a new set of weapons and outfits inspired by the Tomb Raider III and classic Lara skins from previous titles. 

Shadow of the Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition (until January 6th, 2022)

Shadow of the Tomb Raider

The Shadow of the Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition features the lore of the Maya apocalypse, where players have to test their survival skills to become the real Tomb Raider. The story follows the last chapter of Lara’s origin, where players can download all the game weapons, skills, outfits for the showdown. The Shadow of the Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition is probably one of the best ways to experience the narrative of Lara’s journey of the tombs.

Tomb Raider GOTY (until January 6th, 2022)

Tomb Raider GOTY

Tomb Raider Game of The Year, often called Tomb Raider GOTY, is among this decade’s critically acclaimed action games. The game features a vast world of tombs, giving you the freedom to explore the surroundings while testing your destiny as the Raider. The game features the intense story of Lara Croft as being a young woman who is forced to become a hardened survivor of the tombs. The Tomb Raider GOTY edition includes five outfits for Lara and four characters. 

Gods Will Fall (January 6th to January 13th, 2022)

Gods Will Fall

Gods Will Fall is anything but ordinary. The game has some of the best storylines, arks and animations. Inspired by the top-downs, Gods Will Fall is somewhat similar to the likes of Dark Souls but not entirely. The game drives its potential from the frustrations of the average human being and offers a clear insight into the world of gods. You have to follow the god’s will inside the game, and those who divert from the teachings can face a slow and merciless death. The narrative forces you to pick sides at every stage, and if you’re not careful enough, you can face life-death situations.
