Realtech VR has announced that it will release remastered versions of Tomb Raider 1, 2 and 3 on Steam. These remasters will be based on the mobile versions, will support OpenVR, will feature a new 3D engine, and will be free to all owners of these games.
As Realtech VR claimed, these remasters will require the purchase of the DOS version of each game being sold on Steam. In other words, think of these remasters as ZDoom which can play all Doom games.
The team has already finished the PC versions of Tomb Raider 1 and 2, and is currently working on the remaster of Tomb Raider 3.
The new 3D engine was reconstructed for the latest OpenGL and comes with a better looking post process (like better ambient occlusion, shadow), and support for both Windows 7 and Windows UWP. The post effects can be disabled and players will be able to switch to the legacy texture packs.
Furthermore, these remasters properly support Xbox 360/One controllers, include the Unfinished Business & The Golden Mask DLC packs, and come with numerous bug fixes.
Below you can find two videos showcasing the remastered versions of Tomb Raider 1 and 2. Realtech VR will release a video for Tomb Raider 3 next month.
There isn’t any ETA on when these remasters will hit Steam, however, we’ll be sure to keep you posted!
