The Epic Game Store is offering two freebies, with one being Shadow of the Tomb Raider, the final installment in the Lara Croft reboot trilogy. This happens to be the Definitive Edition of the game, which improves upon the base release with additions such as DLC challenge tombs, additional weapons and outfits, and more. Shadow of the Tomb Raider normally costs $39.99 on the Epic Games Store but is available to claim at no cost until September 8, 2022 at 11:00 a.m. ET.

An official description for Shadow of the Tomb Raider:

In Shadow of the Tomb Raider Definitive Edition experience the final chapter of Lara’s origin as she is forged into the Tomb Raider she is destined to be. Combining the base game, all seven DLC challenge tombs, as well as all downloadable weapons, outfits, and skills, Shadow of the Tomb Raider Definitive Edition is the ultimate way to experience Lara’s defining moment.

Shadow of the Tomb Raider features:

  • Survive and Thrive In the Deadliest Place on Earth: Master an unforgiving jungle setting in order to survive. Explore underwater environments filled with crevasses and deep tunnel systems.
  • Become One With the Jungle: Outgunned and outnumbered, Lara must use the jungle to her advantage. Strike suddenly and disappear like a jaguar, use mud as camouflage, and instill fear in enemies to sow chaos.
  • Discover Dark and Brutal Tombs: Tombs are more terrifying than ever before, requiring advanced traversal techniques to reach them, and once inside they are filled with deadly puzzles.
  • Uncover Living History: Discover a hidden city and explore the biggest hub space ever found in a Tomb Raider game.

Submerged: Hidden Depths, an exploration-based, post-apocalyptic indie game from the developers at Uppercut Games, is also available to claim from the Epic Game Store at no cost until September 8, 2022 at 11:00 a.m. ET.

A drowned city, crumbling tips of skyscrapers stubbornly standing above the waves. Deserted villages, now inhabited by enigmatic creatures. And beneath the surging ocean waits an anguished, angry presence.

Submerged: Hidden Depths is a non-combat third-person “relaxploration” adventure, set in the sunken ruins of a beautiful world. Take on the role of Miku and Taku – one cursed with a mysterious power that she wants to use for good, the other determined not to let it tear them apart.

Epic Game Store users also have until September 8 to claim a free Armazillo Bundle for Knockout City, Velan Studios and EA’s team-based competitive multiplayer dodgeball game. Knockout City became a free-to-play title on June 1, 2022.

The Epic Game Store’s next freebies are Hundred Days – Winemaking Simulator and the Realm Royale Reforged Epic Launch Bundle.
