Remasters of the first three Tomb Raider games are coming to Steam, according to Realtech VR.
Lara Croft looks a lot different nowadays. Check out how videogame character design is evolving.
Realtech VR are in charge of the remasters, having previously ported Tomb Raider 1 and 2 to mobile, and will base the Steam remasters on these versions.
The remastered versions of Tomb Raider 1, 2, and 3 will support OpenVR, be playable with a controller, and will feature a new 3D engine for all three games.
TR1-3 remaster for PC are planned for Steam for free and will requires the purchase of the DOS version being sold on Steam (like ZDoom playing Doom games). Also the PC version will supports OpenVR and features a new 3D engine for both 3 games.

The remasters will be available for free to anyone who already owns the DOS version of the original games on Steam. The DOS version will also be essential to run the game, as the remaster is essentially a mod added on to it.
However, don’t expect the Realtech to work on a console remaster anytime soon, as the licence for publishing from Microsoft and Sony is too expensive.
A trailer showcasing the remasters in expected next month, with an open beta due this summer.
