The original Tomb Raider games are old. They are very old where they’re not particularly nice to look at, at least compared to modern games. However they are what many consider a classic, and the good news is that it looks like the games will be getting a remaster according to a confirmation on Twitter.

According to the tweet by Realtech VR (via PC Gamer), the company has confirmed that they are working on remasters of Tomb Raider 1, 2, and 3 which will be coming soon to Steam. As it stands the original Tomb Raider games are available on Steam, but they are the DOS ports of the original games, which like we said don’t exactly scream hi-fidelity.

Presumably the remasters will feature better graphics, although exactly how much better is subjective as gameplay footage of the remasters for Tomb Raider 1 and 2 are available above and below. The good news is that if you bought any of the originals, it seems that the remasters will be a free download for you guys. However there is no mention of how much the remasters will cost for those who did not purchase the original.

The remaster will feature a new 3D engine and will support OpenVR and also support for controllers. No word on when they will be released on Steam but we’ll keep our eyes peeled.
