Tomb Raider 1, 2 and 3 Getting FREE Remasters on Steam

Tomb Raider 1, 2 and 3 Getting FREE Remasters on Steam

In case you're one of those who began their PC third-person role playing genre with games like Tomb Raider 1 or 2, then you're in for a treat.

Remasters of the first three Tomb Raider games are coming to Steam, according to Realtech VR. Each will utilize a new 3D engine that allows for better lighting effects and shadowing. Now, don't get your hopes up for some magical Crash Bandicoot N.Sane Trilogy ground up remake, because these aren't that, but rather completely true to the original ports of the original games into a new game engine. This is an efficient method which returns a lot of problems in performance, control and resolution calibration. The Tomb Raider remasters will be based on the mobile versions, which are also available on Steam.

There is a reason why this is going to be strictly a Steam release for the PC.
