As part of developer Square Enix’s Stay Home and Play campaign amidst the coronavirus pandemic, it is making the first Tomb Raider game free for Steam users only for today. You’re also getting Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris as part of the package.
“Gamers are part of a global community. We regularly rally together online to return balance to fantasy kingdoms, recruit crew to save the universe from sci-fi threats, and indulge in healthy competition through high-octane action games. For others, shifting to both online work and play is unfamiliar territory,” Square Enix said in a blog post. “With this in mind, we’re offering a gift to our community. Starting right now through Monday, March 23 at 11:59PM PDT, we’re releasing both Tomb Raider (2013) and Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris for free on Steam.”
