Lara Croft: Relic Run celebrates 10 million downloads with an icy new update

Lara Croft: Relic Run has been downloaded 10 million times since it first popped up on mobile devices in late May. To celebrate, Square Enix is offering a new update.


The Temple Run formula has been one that has received many homages since its introduction, but there hasn't been an existing license that fits it quite as well as classic Tomb Raider. Fans appear to agree, as the free-to-play auto-runner, Lara Croft: Relic Run, has reached 10 million downloads. Square Enix is looking to thank those players by announcing a new update for the mobile game.

A new environment called the Mountain Pass is being added today. In addition to taking to treacherously frigid conditions and harrowing mountaintops, other living threats await Lara Croft thousands of feet above sea level. That include yetis adn ice spiders. Fortunately, she'll have a new mini-gun weapon, as well as a snowmobile to help her get through these dangers. It's a good thing, too, because the update will also introduce the New Demon boss, who's looking to put Ms. Croft on ice for good.

Nothing has changed about Lara Croft: Relic Run's price tag. It remains free-to-play and is available on the App Store and Google Play store. The update won't be hitting the Windows Phone version of the update isn't quite ready yet, but is coming soon.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
