Square Enix has joined the growing number of publishers offering free games to pass the time while we practice social distancing. From now until March 24, you can grab a pair of Tomb Raider games–the 2013 Tomb Raider reboot and Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris–completely free of charge on Steam, and they are yours to keep.
Tomb Raider (2013) reinvigorated the classic action-adventure series, offering a new origin story that chronicles Lara’s turn from an academic to a burgeoning explorer. Often compared to the Uncharted series in terms of style and gameplay, Tomb Raider features a stellar campaign with excellent combat mechanics and plenty of secrets to uncover. If you somehow haven’t played it yet, now’s the perfect time. Both Tomb Raider sequels are also steeply discounted on Steam. Rise of the Tomb Raider is down to $9 and Shadow of the Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition is $19.58.
The 2014 Tomb Raider spin-off Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris is a different kind of adventure. Whereas Tomb Raider offers an engrossing single-player campaign, Temple of Osiris leans into arcade co-op action and is lighter on story. Played from an isometric perspective just like its predecessor Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light, Temple of Osiris sees you and up to three friends exploring Egyptian tombs filled with gods and monsters to vanquish. You can play drop-in-drop-out with friends and family either online or locally.
These Tomb Raider games are just two of the many free games available to download right now, including four others that are available on Steam: Goat of Duty, Headsnatchers, Drawful 2, and Deiland. We’ve been keeping a running list of every free game you can snag across all platforms, so hopefully some of these games will make your time spent at home as enjoyable as possible.
