Tomb Raider Original Trilogy Remasters Coming to Steam


However, they're the original DOS ports running through an emulator, which throws up a bunch of performance, resolution and control problems.

The first three Tomb Raider titles are being remastered and making their way to Steam, thanks to Realtech VR. Not only will these offer 1080p and 60fps support, but they will feature a new 3D engine and include the chance to play with a controller.

You can actually see a preview of these Tomb Raider remasters on Realtech VR's YouTube channel. You'll need to own the games on Steam in order to play the remasters because they're essentially mods of those versions, but if you do then they'll be completely free.

Steam users will soon be able to tuck into remastered versions of Tomb Raider, Tomb Raider II, and Tomb Raider III: Adventures of Lara Croft. There will also be proper graphics settings, like in an actual PC game.

There's a good reason for this, as Realtech aren't touching the assets, but simply sprucing up the game engine. Basically the remasters will use the original games' install packages, and that is why the remasters will only be available on Steam, too. And because the old Tomb Raider games are often sold at a discount on Valve's platform for less than $2, players can get the remastered editions for quite cheap. United Kingdom has released four new Tomb Raider clips featuring Alicia Vikander as the intrepid Lara Croft.
