Tomb Raider Remasters Announced

A tweet from realtech VR has word on plans for remastered editions of the first three Tomb Raider games (thanks GameInformer). They say these will come to Steam and will be free to those who own the originals. They offer a Tomb Raider 1 Classic PC Remaster trailer and a Tomb Raider 2 Classic Remaster trailer to show off updated graphics, saying the same thing about each: "With OpenGL 4.5, SSAO (Ambient Occlusion), Bloom post process, 16x AA, and Full HD (1080p) @ 60fps (game was 30fps originally)." Here's more:
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). Also the PC version will supports OpenVR and features a new 3D engine for both 3 games.

I'm going to have to wait till I get a GTX 2080 to play these.

Yeah pretty soon the model number will mean how much it's going to cost you for one.

As for these "remasters"... ummm... oh well, free is free, right?

That ... looks REALLY good. How did I miss this? Thanks for the link

The ONE thing needing remastering over the graphics was the damn camera and controls. And both those videos prove they've neglected that with gusto. #Frustrating

Yep... If you want classic Tomb Raider, you can play the reboot trilogy from 10 years ago, one of which is a direct remake of the 1996 original. Going back any further is just torture for the sake of nostalgia.

This is probably true, but I'd still like the chance to see for myself. Shouldn't miss out because I bought on GOG rather than Steam.

I wish they put a full effort for a remake and not just a tad graphic haul. I know it would be costly, but I think it would have it's fans that would buy it for these days. I'm talking the Rise of Tomb Raider graphics with Tomb Raider 1 and 2 and that would be sick.

Oh wow. I know they were awesome in their time but a modern look at the gameplay in both the given videos is just crap-tastic.

That sucks. GoG is also where I own the first three games.

But there's at least two open source Tomb Raider engine remakes that run the original data. It's a new engine, not a source port of the original, but seems to work well. The other option is to play the DOS versions using 3dfx Glide in a dosbox wrapper.
