The Epic Games Store is no stranger to churning out free games from time to time. The latest in its addition of free games will be a “Tomb Raider” game that is expected to be free to players on September 1.
The title ‘Shadow of the Tomb Raider’ will be free on the Epic Games Store
According to the Games Radar story, the free “Tomb Radar” game that will be available on the Epic Games Store is titled “Shadow of the Tomb Raider.” However, the article points out that this title might not be the best Tomb Raider title on the list.
The publication noted that the title might not offer the same thrills as previous offerings. For those who want to enjoy the interactive puzzle aspect of the game, you can still enjoy it by trying the game for free when it launches on September 1.
The game follows the ‘Rise of the Tomb Raider’ which was released in 2015
The article explains that “Shadow of the Tomb Raider” is the follow-up title to “Rise of the Tomb Raider”, which was initially released in 2015. The initial game saw Lara Croft running through the Peruvian jungle and even trying to navigate . through the tombs to “save the world from a Mayan apocalypse.”
The events that players experience in the game are “supposedly Lara’s defining moment”, where she began to become her destiny, Tomb Raider. For those looking for something a little more relaxing, the Epic Games Store offers “Submerged: Hidden Depths” – along with “Shadow of the Tomb Raider”.
Alternative to the adventure-focused Lara Croft game
The games, however, won’t be able to find any gunfights, but instead will be able to adventure, explore, solve puzzles, and do other things in the ruins of a sunken world. The game is different compared to the journey of Lara Croft.
The games will reportedly replace another title called “Ring of Pain.” The game is a roguelike card tracker where players will zoom in on certain encounters.

The next Tomb Raider game will be built on Unreal Engine 5
The colorful yet spooky turn-based game could be an alternative to “Shadow of the Tomb Raider” if players want something with a little less action. A new Tomb Raider game is reportedly still in development.
The upcoming game will be developed with the help of Unreal Engine 5. Crystal Dynamic, the developer behind the upcoming game, announced that their main goal is to be able to deliver “the high-quality cinematic action-adventure experience that fans deserve.”
Crystal Dynamic was acquired by the Embracer Group for $300 million in May. The company announced that they see “great potential” not only in new Lara Croft adventures, but also in spin-offs, remakes, remasters, and even “transmedia projects.”
