Want To Play Tomb Raider: Underworld For Free? Now You Can

Want to play Tomb Raider: Underworld for free? Now you can. Square Enix have added the game to their Core Online service, which allows you to play a few of Eidos’ console games in your browser without having to pay anything.


Core Online is supported by ads. An ad will pop up periodically (usually every 20 minutes) and you’ll be given the option of watching through it or paying a certain amount to remove ads. The longer the ad, the more game-time you earn.


You can either pay to remove ads across the entire game or just purchase ad-free play-time for individual levels. Something to note is that the Core Online service doesn’t “stream” data to your browser—it pre-loads it, which means games run pretty smoothly.


Other games currently on Core Online are: Hitman: Blood Money, Mini Ninjas, and Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light.

    Hmm… I was going to focus on just talking about Tomb Raider Underworld. It’s an okay game, the first puzzle might stump a few people due to the underwater cave being a bit hard to find pending the angle of your camera and some of the underwater controls.

    Also warn that if they didn’t patch it properly from how the game was from it’s original release, that you’d best make multiple saves due to some game breaking bugs that will halt you from advancing at all. In some cases making the auto-save your worst enemy.

    And that you should never think or invest too much thought into the game because parts of the story will frustrate you to no end and will make the lead character, Lara Croft, appear incapable if not just plain infuriating.

    But… Now my focus is more on… In game ads? Yeah… Like CharmChar said. You can get the game used. For very cheap. Hell you can download a pretty cheap digital version…

    Well… At least you can give the game a try for free in the Browser version. See if you like it first.

    Though I’d still ultimately suggest the Anniversary or just get the Tomb Raider Bundle for home console instead.
