This time of year is always a fast-paced and extremely exciting period for those with a passion for video gaming. Publishers generally take the month of November as a perfect opportunity to market and release the year’s blockbuster titles as part of the roadmap to revenue for the festive period. One such title, which is being released for Microsoft’s Xbox One console today, is ‘Rise of the Tomb Raider‘, the latest entry in the Lara Croft franchise. To celebrate that release, and to show how much they value their mobile consumer base, Square Enix is offering a limited time reduction on the cost of the ‘Lara Croft GO’ mobile puzzle game.
There’s a lot going on from a flagship video gaming perspective at the moment. The release of Rise of the Tomb Raider will find itself in direct competition with other high profile titles such as Call of Duty: Black Ops 3, and the highly anticipated Fallout 4. Still, given the fact that it’s a different type of experience, Square Enix will be confident that Lara Croft can compete for the affection of gamers around the world. There’s also the fact that the release comes with the added benefit of Lara Croft GO being reduced to its lowest price yet on the iOS App Store.
Lara Croft GO is one of those intelligently put together titles that utilizes the fame and importance of the main character, but that steps away from the type of action that brought the character to prominence. The beautifully crafted puzzle-adventure game features the Lara Croft character, but catapults her into a long-forgotten world that involves having to undertake a wide array of puzzles in the hope of uncovering the myth of the Queen of Venom. The game contains fantastic and engaging visuals, a captivating soundtrack, and a simple navigation system that allows the main character to be directed around the environment with relative ease.
There’s also more than 75 different puzzles that span across 5 custom chapters. If you happened to be a fan of the insanely addictive Hitman GO puzzle adventure, then Lara Croft GO will be one that you want to add to your purchased items. Especially for the very limited $1.99 price-tag. It usually costs $4.99.
If you plan on downloading, then act quick as Square Enix has announced that this will be a limited 24-hour price reduction.
