Take a look at this Tomb Raider 2 Unreal 4 fan remake before it's buried in a vault

Tomb Raider

Another day, another impressive Unreal 4-powered fan remake of a game that probably won't see the light of day because of punks like me drawing attention to it. These developers should just spring it on us when it's done from now on.

No doubt someone will attempt to remake our list of best PC games one day.

I know there are a lot of classic Tomb Raider fans who aren't really into what the franchise has become. Personally, I like both styles, but I have to admit these screenshots gave me massive nostalgia pangs. Especially this next one:

Tomb Raider

Created by someone known only as Nicobass, the remake, titled Tomb Raider The Dagger Of Xian, is an impressive feat, particularly when you see it in motion. The animations have just been nailed, right down to Lara's iconic swandive. It's as you remember it, but less angular. 

Tomb Raider

While there's a good chance Square Enix's lawyers will kill the project, Nicobass could try to pitch it to Square Enix. Go on, pal. It might not be one of the selectable games in Square Enix Collective - the initiative that saw a new Fear Effect game recently get greenlit - but you never know. Here's the remake in action:

Come on Square Enix, let us have just this one.

Thanks, DSOG.

This is amazing. I'm constantly in awe at what can be achieved using the Unreal engine. Today, one person, alone, can entirely recreate a game that 20 years ago would have taken an entire team of devs.

Or, y'know, you could keep it in your goddam pants. But no, of course you can't.

This is just what I want from a new tomb raider with lots of tombs traps monsters and secrets to find.

Not what crystal dynamics have done with shaky cam crap!
