Epic Games is offering Tomb Raider GOTY, Rise of the Tomb Raider: 20 Year Celebration and the Shadow of the Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition for free on PC. The Tomb Raider Trilogy should run well on most systems, but the promotion ends soon.

Epic Games is still running a huge promotion on the Tomb Raider Trilogy, the most recent trilogy in the series that is. For reference, the trilogy includes Tomb Raider GOTY, Rise of the Tomb Raider: 20 Year Celebration and Shadow of the Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition. Typically, the new trilogy costs £64.97 on the Epic Games Store, while Steam is selling the entire Tomb Raider Collection for £30.42 in its Winter Sale.

However, all three games can be added to your Epic Games library for free until tomorrow. Specifically, the promotion ends at 16:00 on January 6. You must have an Epic Games account to acquire the games, though. Also, the three games need 78 GB of space combined, with Shadow of the Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition coming in at 40 GB itself.

By modern standards, the games have moderate system requirements. For example, Square Enix recommends an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980 Ti to play Rise of the Tomb Raider at 1440p and a GTX 970 for 1080p gaming. By contrast, the publisher recommends a GTX 1060 or a Radeon RX 480 for the Shadow of the Tomb Raider. Each game is free to keep forever, provided that you retain access to your Epic Games account. Links to all the games can be found below.
