Tomb Raider I, II & III Are Being Remastered For PC & VR

Four New Tomb Raider Clips with Alicia Vikander

Oh, and if you own the DOS versions of the game that are available on Steam and a few other places, then you'll get this for free.

The games have not only been rebuilt with a completely new 3D engine that runs all three "Tomb Raider" titles at 60 frames per second, these remasters will also offer support for OpenVR.

The games are available on Steam as DOS ports of the original games which run on an emulator. There will also be proper graphics settings, like in an actual PC game.

Realtech VR has announced that it will release remastered versions of Tomb Raider 1, 2, and 3 on Steam.

Yes we have it.

Currently, the development team has completed Tomb Raider 1 and 2 and is currently working on Tomb Raider 3. We still need the greenlight for mobile version.

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. These can be turned off at any time and players can even opt for the legacy texture pack for some old-school classic effects. The good news is that if you bought any of the originals, it seems that the remasters will be a free download for you guys.

The video below is a preview of the "Tomb Raider 2 Classic Remaster" by Realtech VR, although the port maker has not yet confirmed a release date for all three remasters. No word on when they will be released on Steam but we'll keep our eyes peeled.
