The first three Tomb Raider games are being remastered for Steam

The first three Tomb Raider games are being remastered for Steam

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

Realtech VR recently ported both Tomb Raider 1 and 2 to mobile platforms and will base the Steam remasters on these versions of the games. This update includes support for new controllers (such as Xbox), as well as better shadows, lighting and textures.

Below you can watch the two videos that show the remastered versions of Tomb Raider 1 and 2.

While technically the Tomb Raider games they are updating are free, it requires the purchase of the original DOS version.

There is a reason why this is going to be strictly a Steam release for the PC. Realtech VR hasn't yet set a release date.




A trailer showcasing the remasters in expected next month, with an open beta due this summer.

The port is relying on Steam because we won't provide game data.

In addition to the 3d engine, the remasters will also offer OpenVR support, thus you will be able to experience Lara Croft's adventures through her own eyes by using a VR headset!

If you want to enjoy the remastered versions, you must have the original versions in your library since the remastered versions are actually mods of those versions.

A set release date has not been announced yet by the developers, but they are saying at least that they have already finished porting the first two games and are now working on the third installment. Until then, stay tuned!
