A little over a month since its release, Eidos Montreal’s Shadow of the Tomb Raider has been discounted for PC on Steam. The base game sees a 34 percent discount, while the Season Pass – which contains new Challenge Tombs – has also been discounted by 34 percent. Also, the Digital Deluxe Edition has been discounted by 36 percent. All discount offers will come to a close on October 22nd.
Though we liked the approach taken with Shadow of the Tomb Raider (full our review here), many outlets have criticized the overall characterization of Lara Croft, as well as the story. Even with the discounts, it’s advised to view gameplay footage and other playthroughs beforehand to see if this is the game for you.
If you already own Shadow of the Tomb Raider for PC, then the Season Pass discount comes at a good time. The first of seven Challenge Tombs will be launching in November with The Forge. Along with co-op support for five of the tombs, there will be new outfits, skills, and weapons. Furthermore, each Challenge Tomb will have its own narrative hook as the player teams up with established story characters. The Forge arrives on November 13th and can also be purchased separately for $5.
