Tomb Raider Trilogy and FINAL FANTASY XV Coming to Stadia at Launch

LOS ANGELES, CA (June 6, 2019) – Square Enix® is excited to confirm that TOMB RAIDER®, Rise of the Tomb Raider®, Shadow of the Tomb Raider™, and FINAL FANTASY® XV will all be available on Stadia when the new platform launches this November.

TOMB RAIDER explores the intense origin story of Lara Croft® and her ascent from an untested young woman to a hardened survivor. Armed only with raw instincts and the ability to push beyond the limits of human endurance, Lara must fight to unravel the dark history of a forgotten island to escape its relentless hold.

In Rise of the Tomb Raider, Lara becomes more than a survivor, and embarks on her first Tomb Raiding expedition in search of the secret of immortality. She’ll explore a vast and hostile world, engage in guerilla combat, and discover deadly tombs.

In Shadow of the Tomb Raider, Lara must travel to a magnificent environment filled with the largest tombs in franchise history, hidden secrets, and cunning new enemies. As she races to save the world from a Maya apocalypse, Lara will be forged into the Tomb Raider she is destined to be.

FINAL FANTASY XV is the critically acclaimed roleplaying game (RPG) and the latest entry in the iconic FINAL FANTASY series. Set in an enthralling world where fantasy meets reality, players will join Crown Prince Noctis and his comrades on an epic journey of brotherhood, love and despair as they unravel Noctis's destiny and take up arms against the warmongering empire, Niflheim. With a captivating cast of characters, breathtaking visuals, open-world exploration and action-packed real time combat, FINAL FANTASY XV is the ultimate FINAL FANTASY experience for fans and newcomers to the series.

“We’re thrilled to bring the critically acclaimed Tomb Raider trilogy to Stadia.” said Gary Snethen, Chief Technology Officer at Crystal Dynamics®. “It’s an exciting new platform, and we’re always pleased when new audiences can discover Lara’s origin story.”

“Stadia brings new opportunities to our research and development teams, who always love a new challenge,” said Julien Bouvrais, Chief Technology Officer at Eidos-Montréal™. “Being part of the first round of games released on the platform allows us to break new ground, and shows our studio’s dedication to delivering trailblazing experiences for all players.”
