Tomb Raider 1-3 remasters are coming to PC, free if you own the original '90s versions


Arriving on Steam sometime this year

Tomb Raider may have had its ups and downs (and I'm talking across all media, including film), but the initial trilogy was fantastic. Tomb Raider II will always have a special place in my heart, but the strides the first made made ripples throughout the industry at the time, and the third in some ways feels like a culmination of what the team had learned the first two go-arounds.

Some people dig them so much that they even picked up the original DOS versions on Steam, but according to studio realtech VR (the same team that handled the mobile ports), remasters are incoming. OpenVR and a new engine are confirmed, and if you own those original editions on Steam, you'll get the remasters for free. Oh, and a mobile version of III was announced as well.

It's timely, given that new Tomb Raider film is out this weekend, but no dates have been set for the PC remasters.
