Lara Croft Go has a brand new story chapter, titled “Mirror of Spirits.” And in celebration of its latest expansion, the acclaimed turn-based puzzle game has gone on sale for a limited time.
Released by Square Enix in August 2015 as a spiritual successor to Hitman Go, Lara Croft Go has you controlling the titular tomb-raiding archaeologist-adventurer like a piece on a board to navigate challenging spatial puzzles set in the ancient ruins of a lost civilization.
Complemented by stunning graphics and mesmerizing sounds, the brainteasing gameplay is not only about making your way around fixed and tight spaces, but also about collecting artifacts and surviving close encounters with deadly traps and monstrous creatures, with the ultimate goal of uncovering the myth of the Queen of Venom. Take a look at the launch trailer for Lara Croft Go:
Just three months after its launch, Lara Croft Go was updated with its “Shard of Life” expansion, which brought 26 new puzzles and a new mechanic, among others. Now, the game’s latest expansion is here in the form of the new “Mirror of Spirits” story chapter.
Developed by Square Enix Montréal in collaboration with the Montréal indie studio KO_OP, “Mirror of Spirits” features 25 new puzzles and three new mechanics, along with a new set of achievements, trophies, and more, in a setting heavily inspired by Croft Manor and classic encounters with Lara’s doppelgänger.
