Lara Croft's awesome mobile adventure adds a free tomb to raid

Publisher Square Enix has temporarily dropped the game's price, too.


Lara Croft has a pretty big adventure on Xbox One this fall with Rise of the Tomb Raider, but her grand mobile mission is about grow too. Developer Square Enix Montreal announced it's dropping "The Shard of Life" expansion for Lara Croft GO tomorrow for free on Android and iOS (sorry, Windows Phone folks) with some 26 fresh puzzles to tackle while you're waiting in line at the grocery store. More than that, the publisher is knocking 40 percent off the game's price -- it'll run you $2.99 for a limited time. Oh and its hosting a Twitch event tasking the game's community to solve the new puzzles.

Sounds pretty cool, right? Square Enix Montreal has been quietly kicking a lot of ass on the mobile front recently with smart uses of its existing properties that don't feel like crappy cashgrabs; this is just the latest example. Hitman GO and Hitman Sniper are both pretty ahem, killer, although the former's difficulty ramps up just a little too fast. The studio's turn-based take on our favorite grave invader doesn't skimp on quality either, so you'd be remiss to not grab the game while its on sale if you haven't already played.
