Tomb Raider
Rise of the Tomb Raider has been one of the Xbox's biggest hits so far - and it will look even better on PC

Rise of the Tomb Raider released on Xbox two months ago and quickly garnered rave reviews, generating a huge wave of want. However, PC gamers will have to wait until January 28 to get their hands on it. Unless they who pick up select NVIDIA GeForce GTX 900 series graphics cards and notebooks, with which you’ll get a free download code for the third-person action-adventure title from Crystal Dynamics and Square Enix – three weeks early.

From today until February 16, gamers in the UAE and around the world (except China) who purchase a GeForce GTX 970 or above add-in card or a notebook with a GeForce GTX 970M, 980M or 980 will receive a free copy of Rise of the Tomb Raider.

Featuring epic, high-octane action moments set in environments that are as beautiful as they are hostile, Rise of the Tomb Raider delivers a cinematic survival narrative that places you in the boots of Lara Croft on her first tomb-raiding expedition. It’s not all treasure hunting though; players will need to push the English adventuress to her limits as she needs to seek out materials and animals for hunting and crafting arrows, for example.

GeForce’s sharp rendering promises to bring unprecedented immersion to a game that’s already being described by fans as the best the series has delivered till date, and sold more than one million copies on the Xbox One by the end of 2015.

For details on the bundle, visit the GeForce website.

The game will be out on general release for PC on January 20, while PS4 players will need to wait until the end of this year.
