Lara Croft made her first streaming appearance in Tomb Raider (2013) on GeForce NOW. Now we have more great news for Lara fans with today’s release of Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light, which is free for all members to enjoy.
Played entirely from a third-person, isometric perspective, Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light is an action-adventure game with many classic hallmarks from the Tomb Raider franchise, such as exploration and discovery, platforming and puzzle solving. So, fans of the franchise will feel right at home. And, of course, in Guardian of Light there is plenty of gunplay and pyrotechnics to go with all the spelunking.
You join Lara in South America where she has unintentionally unleashed an evil demon and help her, well, leash it again before it can wreak havoc on the world. Accomplishing this will require much exploration through ancient Mayan temples and tombs, where you’ll encounter all manner of enemies and more than your fair share of treasure.
In addition to waves of undead demon warriors you can also expect a little not-so-friendly competition from rival treasure hunters. Oh, and there just might be a few epic showdowns with some truly memorable bosses along the way as well.
You can go it alone as Lara or join forces with a friend (playing as an ancient Mayan tribesman named Totec) in local co-operative mode. Either way, you’ll enjoy filling the game’s intricately detailed, highly destructible environments with explosions, bodies, and debris as you battle the demon lord and his minions.
As mentioned earlier, it’s not all about gunplay with the bad guys, though, as the environment serves up all sorts of nasty traps, obstacles, and surprises aimed at ruining your day. Learning how to circumvent such potential pitfalls is all in a day’s work for Lara, though, and there’s usually more than one path you can take to get past each hurdle.
