Giving Lara Croft a Shield
Lara Croft has been to many places over the years, some dark and dank, others bright but just as dangerous. Now she’s headed over to the Nvidia’s Shield platform.
Square Enix announced today that it’s releasing a handful of games to Shield, starting with the Tomb Raider reboot (not to be confused with the more recently released Rise of the Tomb Raider). It’s now available to GeForce Now members to stream for free.
Sometime in the not-too-distant future, Square Enix will also release Sleeping Dogs, Lara Croft and the Guardians of Light, Quantum Conundrum, and Murdered: Soul Suspect to Shield—five games in all (including Tomb Raider).
“Square Enix is delighted to join the Nvidia Shield platform and enable instant access for gamers to stream our award-winning franchises like Tomb Raider with GeForce Now,” said Janet Swallow, vice president-licensing worldwide, Eidos label at Square Enix.
The catalog of games for Shield is growing—it now includes more than 80 titles that GeForce Now members can play instantly. You can see a full list of available titles here.
After the first three months, which are free, a GeForce Now membership runs a penny shy of $8 per month. It supports streaming games at up to 1080p at 60 frames per second.
