Each will utilize a new 3D engine that allows for better lighting effects and shadowing.

"The port is relying on Steam because we won't provide game data". The DOS version will also be essential to run the game, as the remaster is essentially a mod added on to it.

While technically the Tomb Raider games they are updating are free, it requires the purchase of the original DOS version. In other words, think of these remasters as ZDoom which can play all Doom games. Basically the remasters will use the original games' install packages, and that is why the remasters will only be available on Steam, too.

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. In fact, they have ported the first three Tomb Raider titles for Square Enix. We still need the greenlight for mobile version. In return, fans will be able to play the game via OpenVR as well as experience it with a new 3D engine.

All the remasters of the game also fully support the Xbox 360/Xbox One controller, including the Unfinished Business & The Golden Mask DLC and integrate multiple fixes. And yet, both Lara Croft: Tomb Raider and follow-up The Cradle of Life are just as silly as most video game adaptations, full of bad CGI, terrible-looking costumes, and needlessly convoluted plots.

There isn't any ETA on when these remasters will hit Steam, however, we'll be sure to keep you posted!
