You Can Play 'Shadow Of The Tomb Raider' For Free Right Now

You Can Play 'Shadow Of The Tomb Raider' For Free Right Now

Looking for a new game to sink your teeth into? Square Enix is offering a free trial of Shadow of the Tomb Raider, the third and final instalment to the studio's current Lara Croft trilogy.

The promotion is already live on all relevant platforms - Xbox One, PS4, and PC - so head to your respective store, search for Shadow of the Tomb Raider, and download the demo if you're interested.

And, once you plough through the trial - there will be a cut off point - you can head back and pick Lara up exactly where you left her should you decide to buy the full game. Don't leave her hanging off a cliff for too long, yeah?

If we're being honest, the third-person stealth RPG endured a tough time when it launched in September. Releasing shortly after Spider-Man, and before a number of other GOTY candidates, it didn't stand out as much as the previous entries in its mini-series had.

But its reviews aren't *so* bad: it hit 76 on Metacritic, and several publications deemed it "unmissable". Still, Square Enix struggled to sell Shadow, especially when it came to physical copies in the UK. As soon as those cool Larazade bottles sold out, Ms Croft slowly faded into the background, once again.

​Grin In The Face Of Danger: Shadow Of The Tomb Raider's Hilarious Photo Mode

If you do end up loving Shadow, the full game is widely discounted right now. During Black Friday you could pick it up for around £20, and with Christmas approaching fast, you'll most likely find it at the same price, or less, pretty soon.

Just, whatever you decide to do, trial or full game, make sure you experience its brilliant photomode. Who knew being impaled by an ancient spike, or getting mauled by a tiger, could be so much fun?
