Microsoft is currently running a promotion through its Store through which you can snag two weeks of Xbox Game Pass for free if you buy the latest Tomb Raider movie. That won't appeal to everyone, sure; but if you've been considering picking up the cinematic reboot anyway, it's a solid deal.
Tomb Raider (2018) stars Alicia Vikander as the titular Tomb Raider herself, Lara Croft. The film reboot sheds away the canon set by the Angelina Jolie movies of yore, offering a story that closely hews to the Tomb Raider video game reboot that Crystal Dynamics kicked off in 2013.
Seeking to find her father after his disappearance years before, Lara sets off to a remote island off the coast of Japan to try to find him. What follows is a violent run-in with mercenaries, a group of cultists, and the spirit of the mythical Sun Queen, Himiko.
According to Microsoft's terms for the offer, the free two weeks of XBox Game Pass will be available through June 4 with any purchase. Sadly, rentals aren't eligible for the offer. After you buy the movie, you'll receive a redeemable code through the Xbox Live Messaging Center once the promotion is over.
If you want to give Xbox Game Pass a shot without picking up Tomb Raider (2018), the service offers up access to more than 100 games, including Sea of Thieves and State of Decay 2 for $9.99 per month. Otherwise, Tomb Raider is available to pick up at the Microsoft Store for $18.99.
