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

The Oscar winner introduced her take on the character at Monday's premiere where she described it as something Steve Granitz Getty Images

There is a scene in Tomb Raider where Croft traps a man in a choke-hold till he goes limp, and you can see the horror of killing someone for the first time reflected in her face - a far more acceptable reaction to taking a life than Jolie's signature sexy smirk.

These remasters will work as mods for the original games, essentially.

In addition to the 3d engine, the remasters will also offer OpenVR support, thus you will be able to experience Lara Croft's adventures through her own eyes by using a VR headset! However there is no mention of how much the remasters will cost for those who did not purchase the original.

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 Steam versions for the original Tomb Raider 1, 2 and 3 are being redesigned.


For those who might just want decent performance on modern systems: all graphics can be turned down!

The port is relying on Steam because we won't provide game data. 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. In other words, think of these remasters as ZDoom which can play all Doom games.

For Tomb Raider screenwriter Geneva Robertson-Dworet, one of the big challenges in bringing iconic video game heroine Lara Croft back to the big screen was crafting a character who was "more relatable" and less worldly than her predecessor Angelina Jolie's "badass" incarnation. There will be news in the upcoming months.

"So, that was the journey we wanted to tell". Thankfully, the games are about to get a new coat of paint. As always, stay tuned for anything gaming-related!
