Mobile tomb raiding adventure Lara Croft Go is getting a free expansion this Thanksgiving. The update is called The Shard of Life and will see Lara traversing across 26 levels in search of the titular shard on iOS and Android devices.

Along with the set of levels, the update will include new monsters, costumes, artifacts, and gemstones.

Square Enix Montreal announced that in celebration of this new content, Lara Croft Go will be 40% off on the App Store, Google Play Store, and Windows Marketplace. They've also launched a week-long streaming event on Twitch, where players can work together to complete the original Lara Croft Go and discover The Shard of Life content in a similar fashion to how Twitch played Pokemon last year.

This isn't the only time players could influence a Tomb Raider game through Twitch. Rise of the Tomb Raider players who stream the Expedition mode can have viewers influence the gameplay on the fly. GameSpot's review of Rise of the Tomb Raider gave Lara's most recent adventure a 9 and you'll be able to see her on the silver screen soon as the Tomb Raider movie reboot may have gotten a new director.

Still waiting for the price to come down on the Windows Marketplace. Seems to still be listed at full price currently.

Is there a reason why this particular mobile game gets so much press?

@RogerioFM:

It must be the only good mobile game ever made.

No other ones get this kind of attention.

@lrdfancypants: There was another one called 80 days, it won game of the year by the Guardian or Times magazine I'm not sure, lol, I don't have to say that it wasnt game of the year if you had a console, but it was still an excellent game on it's own right.

Like I told the person below I'm not attacking the game or saying it's not good.

It's just very unusual for a mobile game to get so many articles on gaming sites.

@lrdfancypants: It's ok, I'm not being overly defensive. I'm just explaining what I know about them and yes, it is strange that GS is covering a mobile game as it's unusual, still, better than covering movies.

@galva86:

Im not saying it's not good. I'm questioning why this mobile game gets so much attention on gaming sites.

Is it the only good mobile game in existence?

@lrdfancypants: no , its not the only one, but imo is one of the best full games (no microtransactions) and it also gets to the point of being agenuine tr

I know it's not the only good mobile game.

That's the point. It's unusual for a mobile game to get this kind of attention which makes me curious why so many sites chose this game to be the mobile game that'd get numerous articles. It's weird.

The Shard of Life? They probably should have named it something like PLEASE BUY RISE OF THE TOMB RAIDER AVAILABLE NOW EXCLUSIVELY ON XBOX 2015 or something like that.
