With no release date in sight, you could replay the trilogy that was kicked off in 2013 with Tomb Raider, also by Crystal Dynamics, followed by Rise of the Tomb Raider (opens in new tab) and concluded by Eidos-Montreal with Shadow of the Tomb Raider (opens in new tab) in 2018. Otherwise, there's no shortage of great PC games this year to help tide you over.
