Each will utilize a new 3D engine that allows for better lighting effects and shadowing. The games will be available via Steam when it is released. Now, don't get your hopes up for some magical Crash Bandicoot N.Sane Trilogy ground up remake, because these aren't that, but rather completely true to the original ports of the original games into a new game engine.

The updated remasters will be free for those who already own the original DOS games on Steam. In other words, think of these remasters as ZDoom which can play all Doom games. Since TR classic is on Steam, we will use the game data from there.

Less excitingly, the remasters are based on the mobile versions of the original three Tomb Raider games.

Yes we have it.

Teams will point to a player's negatives when negotiating, though often not with the player actually in the room. The full tick-tock rundown is worth a read.

Just in time for the new Lara Croft: Tomb Raider movie releasing this year, there is news about the good old classics. In return, fans will be able to play the game via OpenVR as well as experience it with a new 3D engine. The remasters will also include the DLC packs Unfinished Business and The Golden Mask, along with bug fixes and further improvements by Realtech VR.

If you want to enjoy the remastered versions, you must have the original versions in your library since the remastered versions are actually mods of those versions.

Check out the two progress videos below to see how Realtech VR has done with the first two Tomb Raider games. No word on when they will be released on Steam but we'll keep our eyes peeled.
