The Nvidia Shield is set to receive a number of popular games from Square Enix. One of the five titles to be released is Tomb Raider. It is currently available through a GeForce Now game monthly subscription of $7.99. It is limited to Shield tablet or set-top box owners. Unlimited streaming of over eighty games is allowed by the platform.

Other games set to be released are Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light, Murdered: Soul Suspect, Sleeping Dogs, and Quantum Conundrum. Rise of the Tomb Raider is a follow-up to the extremely popular Tomb Raider. The game was released to PCs, Xbox 360 and Xbox One last month. However Gabriela Zamora of PCMag said the game play of the new game was similar to its predecessor. This means owners of the Shield device may not miss out on anything.

But, the recent announcement of Nvidia may deal with this concern with the addition of games from Square Enix.
