Tomb Raider 1+2+3 Will Be Remastered

90's action-adventure gaming age would have been entirely different if not for Eidos Interactive to come up with the legendary Tomb Raider series. The popularity of the franchise spawned two live-action movies starring Hollywood superstar Angelina Jolie in the lead role and a reboot movie by actor Alicia Vikander reprises the character of Lara Croft, scheduled to release on March 16, 2018. All we need is some re-mastered edition of the old Tomb Raider games.

Well, guess what? That is exactly what is going to happen now. Developer Realtech VR takes the responsibility of re-invigorating these games as re-mastered edition. They have already ported Tomb Raider 1 and 2 for mobile devices successfully and now they are headed for PC with these games. Aside from graphical enhancement, the Tomb Raider trilogy will run on a brand-new 3D engine and will feature support for OpenVR.

In a recent conversation on Twitter, Realtech VR let it slip that they are up to re-mastering the Tomb Raider games for Steam, which you can see below.

Below is an example of how it is going to turn out as the re-mastered version of Tomb Raider for PC once they are done. It will run on a full HD 1080p display and at 60fps.

The best part of this news is that, if you already happen to have Tomb Raider 1, 2 or 3 on Steam, you will get the re-mastered editions free and no re-purchasing is required at all. The developers have same plans for GOG but whether or not that is possible is still a question. At this point in time of many kick-ass games out there, a lot of people didn't even realize that the first games of Tomb Raider series are actually available on Steam.

While the modern day reboot installments of the Tomb Raider series are behind the inspiration for the movie adaption, players deserve the chance to go back to the roots of this game to find out first hand, what made it one of the greatest. The polygonal shape of Lara Croft's design however stays almost all the same but in overall, the sneak preview looks very promising. If not anything, this attempt to re-master will at least bring these good old games back to PC for a new generation of gamers.
