Square Enix folks are preparing a nice little surprise for everyone as the Tomb Raider reboot from 2013 will be free at some point in March 2020. Meanwhile, one other game is already free and two are about to follow.
Update: All freebies are now live. Tomb Raider games will be free until 24 March 2020, Headsnatchers until 22nd.
Lara Croft's redesign from 2013 was praised almost universally, to which the Steam reviews testify as well. Sitting at 95 per cent positive reviews, this reboot is one of the most successful Tomb Raider titles ever. Therefore, if you haven't played it for some reason, now would be a great time to give it a shot as it's expected to become free to keep for an undisclosed period of time.
Considering that SteamDB picked the Tomb Raider hint on 19 March 2020, it is quite possible the giveaway is imminent so keep your eyes peeled. We will also update this article once it starts.
That is not all, however, as Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris will get the same treatment . A sequel to the successful Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light, this game will offer up to four-player co-op. Some players were pondering whether the game was worth the full price but since it's going to free, it doesn't hurt to add it to your library.
The third game that is headed for the giveaway session is Headsnatchers . Just like the Tomb Raider titles, it was recently marked for a March 2020 giveaway.
While you are waiting for those three games to go free, you might as well pick up Drawful 2 , which was available for free at the time of writing. This giveaway will last until 11 April 2020, so don't fret if you are not able to pick it up immediately.
We said there was only one other game free initially but here's another one for good measure. Deiland , a vibrant RPG is also free to pick up until 24 March 2020.
Considering the timing of these giveaways, it is possible they have something to do with persuading people to stay home due to health concerns over going outside during Coronavirus worldwide outbreak.
