Square Enix has announced that a new game has joined their free-to-play, ad-based gaming service, Core Online. Lara Croft and The Guardian of Light can be played for free via Core Online, an ad-based gaming portal that sports AAA games without a price tag.
Core Online replaces the traditional pay-to-play premium method with an ad-based service that runs online, enabling users to earn play-time by watching ads. You can save up minutes by watching enough ads to get up to an entire hour of gameplay.
David Guldbrandsen, General Manager of Hapti.co, the new studio from Square Enix, commented in the press release saying...
“This is a great game for CORE ONLINE, the gameplay is the perfect mix of pick-up-and-play and challenging single player action. It’s exciting for Lara Croft to join Agent 47 on CORE ONLINE and we look forward to more guests in the near future.”
Lara Croft not only joins Hitman: Blood Money but also Mini Ninjas and Heroes & Generals, which are also part of Square's new Core Online service.
The game itself is another one of those run-and-gun titles that sees Lara aiming to solve puzzles and battle ancient evils while raiding tombs, as usual.
If you're not at all perturbed at having to stop every so often to watch some ads in between playing a game – for free, mind you – then you can check out Lara Croft And The Guardian of Light right now over at the Core Online Website.
