Stadia: Rise of the Tomb Raider and Thumper free in January 2020

Posted on

Stadia Pro subscribers will be able to play Rise of the Tomb Raider: 20 Year Celebration and Thumper free of charge from January 1, 2020. As a reminder, these free games are only available to Stadia Pro subscribers, who in exchange for € 9.99 per month , gives you several advantages like the possibility of playing in 4K among others. For this vintage of January 2020, Google therefore offers two new titles to its premium customers. 

Rise of the Tomb Raider is the direct sequel to Tomb Raider , reboot of the adventures of Lara Croft released in 2013. Considered the best opus of the trilogy, this episode will take you to the four corners of the world from Syria to Tibet in search of ‘a mysterious ancestral source supposed to lavish immortality and cure all the ills of humanity.

Stadia: Rise of the Tomb Raider and Thumper

The game is much darker and more violent than the previous one and is reserved for an adult audience. The 20 Year Celebration version allows you to access all of the DLCs released to date , including the Baba Yaga extension : the temple of the witch , 2 outfits, 5 skins, 7 new weapons, a survival mode and Réveil Glacial, which will allow you to face zombies in the famous Croft mansion .

Thumper is a rather atypical game, since it mixes rhythm, action and speed. You play as a small, over-vitaminized scarab that will have to follow a long straight line to reach the end of the level. Obviously obstacles will stand in your way, and it will be necessary to show reflex not to be destroyed. If the first levels proceed without too much difficulty, the rest of the game will strain your nerves, and exceptional dexterity will be welcome in certain situations.

If you are a Stadia Pro subscriber, you can therefore recover these two titles from January 1, 2020. Google takes this opportunity to announce that Tomb Raider Definitive Edition , which was part of the free games in December , will no longer be available for free from December 31 . For the time being, this makes 5 free games (6 for the moment) available to Stadia Pro subscribers among Destiny 2, Farming Simulator, Samurai Shodown, and the two titles presented above. Is this enough to motivate a subscription? You tell us.
