Tomb Raider Games Are Getting Free Remasters on Steam

Tomb Raider Games Are Getting Free Remasters on Steam

The original games are there on Steam as well, however they can only run through an emulator, which brings forth a bunch of issues regarding performance, resolution and controls.

I had no idea that the first three Tomb Raider games were available on Steam but, yep, they're all there. The remastered versions games will feature a new 3D engine for all 3 games, will have controller support, and will support OpenVR.

Realtech VR is basing the games on its mobile versions and you would need to buy them on Steam to be able to play.

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). Realtech VR will release a video clip for Tomb Raider 3 next month.

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. In other words, think of these remasters as ZDoom which can play all Doom games.

Currently, there are no specific dates when these games will be officially available on Steam. In fact, they have ported the first three Tomb Raider titles for Square Enix. Since TR classic is on Steam, we will use the game data from there.

Are These Tomb Raider Games Really Free? The remasters will also include the DLC packs Unfinished Business and The Golden Mask, along with bug fixes and further improvements by Realtech VR. As always, stay tuned for anything gaming-related!
