Tomb Raider PC Version On Sale At 66% Off

By Ishaan . May 24, 2013 . 9:30am

The PC version of Tomb Raider is on sale on Green Man Gaming. For the next 22 hours, you can buy a Steam key for the game for 66% off—that was about $17 for me, although prices vary by region.


Additionally, you can use the following code to bring the price down even further: GMG20-LLASD-D8WBQ. After applying the code, I managed to pick the game up for $13.60.


There’s no telling when the code will expire, so you probably want to act quickly.


A high-five to Siliconera reader malek86 for the find!

    So, it already falled on the “Nobody buys it anymore” category.

    Quite fast.

    • Not necessarily. PC games, even new ones, go on sale all the time. That’s just how the PC market is.

      • malek86

        Admittedly Squenix drops their PC games price more quickly than most other publishers.

        And remember how they mentioned “price protection” as one of the reasons for their poor fiscal year? Guess it’s just their policy in general. Maybe it’s not working that well.

      • That GMG coupon expires May 31st, 1500 UTC (aka 8am PDT, 11am EDT) so it’ll last the duration of the sale.

        PC games are definitely being priced more like movies/blu-ray (drops price substantially a few months after release.. especially the digital versions of PC games).

  • anarchy_panty

    Picked it up, thanks for the heads up! Really glad I held off on buying this til now.

  • LustEnvy

    Can I buy this on one PC, and transfer it over to my gaming laptop once it arrives? I don’t wanna miss this deal, and I’m not too knowledgeable on Steam.

    • anarchy_panty

      All Steam purchases are tied to your account, so you can install any game you have on Steam on any computer as long as you’re logged onto Steam.

      • LustEnvy

        Awesome, thank you. I’ve been wanting to play this game, and with my new laptop, I can finally jump in. I assume this game accepts controllers? Lol. I can’t stand K&M gaming.

        edit: Hmm, it has Xbox 360 support, so my PS3 controller emulating a 360 pad with Motionjoy = win.

  • DesmaX

    Honestly, after I brought Deus Ex HR on pre-order on Steam and saw it going at 50% off some months later, I just don’t buy these Square games on PC in their release. Seriously, I just don’t regret buying it before because I got some sweet glasses for my TF2

  • LustEnvy

    This is my first ever PC game purchase. My new M17x R4 with an Nvidia 680m better do this justice!

    Yes, that laptop is overpriced, but I mainly bought it because it’s one of the very few that has an actual HDMI *INPUT* so I can connect my game consoles to the screen. Kills the need for an external monitor.

    The wait for this game has been long, but thankfully, I can enjoy it now.

    • That is indeed one of the rare laptops with an input. A 680M will run Tomb Raider fine. It’ll even be able to do Ultra setting at around 40 fps.

      • malek86

        It’s worth noting that Tomb Raider actually gets a lot heavier in the middle third. My computer could handle it very smooth even at Ultra details, but after some hours I had to lower some settings to High because the scenario kept getting more complicated and the framerate increasingly slower.

        Although I’m quite CPU-limited (my Core i3-2100 is probably a bit slow for the HD7850 I’m sporting), whereas that notebook shouldn’t have the same problem, so perhaps it won’t be as big a problem.

        • Wow a 7850 with a 2nd gen i3. Is it over clocked or you’re just waiting for haswell?

          Granted my desktop rig is a first gen i5-750 oc’ed which isn’t terribly fast by today’s standard too.

          • malek86

            Well, Sandy Bridges are a lot faster than Nehalem. And in games that don’t use multi-threading too much (ie. not Far Cry 3), you can expect an i3 to keep up almost as much as an evenly clocked i5. Even Bioshock Infinite on highest settings wasn’t troubling.

            Unfortunately I imagine newer games are going to use multicores a lot more often, so I think I’ll have to upgrade soon. I have had this CPU for more than two years now, so it should be about time. I’m waiting to see if the Haswell low-end models offer enough of an improvement, if not guess I’ll have to splurge on a mid level.

          • LustEnvy

            Im running a Core i7-3630m with a 1920×1080 screen. It tops out at 3.4ghz stock (I dont know enough OC or anything). It was running most games at 60fps or more at max (demos anyways). If I can get Tomb Raider to run nearer to 60 with certain options off (like AA and vsync) I might do that. I prefer a crisp 60fps framerate than the more subtle details that kill fps.

          • malek86

            Your laptop should have less trouble, I think.

            On a side note, today I discovered that my CPU cripples the performance in Crysis 3, so now I’m waiting a week or so to see if Haswells are worth it, otherwise I will get a semi-cheap Core i5 3350P.

  • Hinataharem

    Just bought it. Thanks Ishaan!

    • Testsubject909

      And don’t forget to thank Malek.

  • GibbRS

    Thanks Ishaan! Just bought it, and the discount code worked.

  • Blesmi

    Sweet, thanks a bunch Ishaan.

  • コルセット

    Sweet! Never buy a PC game at full price, ever.

  • I might buy the game again.

    I already have it for PS3, but I kinda wanna see how gorgeous it is on my PC.

    I heard the hair graphics and physics are like cool.

    • Pyrotek85

      Same here, I feel like at this price I might as well. I was going to wait for a steam sale, but even during the holidays it won’t go much lower, if that.

      • SE games tend to hit the $10 mark after a few couple of months.

        I was gonna get Hitman for $10, but the size is enormous.

  • OathkeeperSoraXIII

    Awesome, I bought it, so far I’m loving it. Game looks gorgeous so far.

    • Testsubject909

      I’m worried if I’ll be pissed at Lara or if my previous experiences with the story and the previous character of Lara is going to affect this…

      Mainly because I really want to see Lara Croft suffer… I love her games, but she’s a horrible human being.

      Edit: Just gotta keep in mind. It’s a reboot. Not a prequel of the same continuity. Maybe this Lara will be an actually likable character….

      • malek86

        She’s kind of annoying actually. But seeing her getting hurt so often feels kind of strange after a while, mostly because she gets hurt in ways that any other human would be dead in 5 seconds. It’s like you have to keep your suspension of disbelief up at all times.

        Now don’t get me wrong, I enjoyed the game a lot and I think it’s better than Uncharted. But not because of Lara.

  • Testsubject909

    Aaaand you guys saved me a ton of money. Thanks.

  • Vitonofrio del Rosso

    bought as well :P

  • Daru Titor

    I got this for 50% off through Origin.
    For whatever reason, the game had to be downloaded via Steam.
    I didn’t have a problem with that, it’s just strange.

  • it was 20$ since day 1 here in russia
    lol the only advantage of living in russia is cheap steam prices
