Epic Games will end its 15-day stretch of giving away free games for the holidays with the rebooted Tomb Raider trilogy. Players can claim Tomb Raider, Rise of the Tomb Raiser and Shadow of the Tomb Raider for free Friday.

Previous days in the giveaway series included only a single game each, so this Tomb Raider bundle is an especially high value deal. Tomb Raider Game of the Year Edition normally costs $20, Rise of the Tomb Raider $30 and Shadow of the Tomb Raider $40, for a total of $90 of value just by clicking a single button.

Other highlights from the list of giveaways include Shenmue 3, which kicked off the promotion, The Vanishing of Ethan Carter, Loop Hero, Vampyr, Prey and Control. If you failed to claim any of the previous days, you can see what you missed here.

All these free games are part of Epic Games' strategy to wrench market share away from Steam. It's hard to know precisely how well it's working, but Epic CEO Tim Sweeney tweeted in April that more than 749 million free games had been claimed up to that point.
