Ask (for many years), and you shall receive. The original Tomb Raider trilogy titles are being remastered for consoles and PC, as revealed at the Nintendo Direct this week. Aspyr and Crystal Dynamics have joined forces to announce a bundle of the first three Tomb Raider titles. Check out the trailer below.
This shiny remaster comes with a subtle new title: Tomb Raider I-III Remastered Starring Lara Croft.
This includes Tomb Raider, Tomb Raider II and Tomb Raider III. All have now been restored with updated graphics and performance enhancements and all come complete with expansions and secret levels for the first time ever on consoles.
From the Press Release –
Tomb Raider I + the “Unfinished Business” Expansion
The game that started this Iconic series. The original Tomb Raider comes complete with the “Unfinished Business” expansion, which is complete with four new bonus levels in two extra chapters.
Tomb Raider II + the “Gold Mask” Expansion
The award-winning second installment in the Tomb Raider series invites you to join Lara to retrieve the Dagger of Xian, a globe trotting adventure from the Great Wall of China, Venice, Tibet, and even the infamous locking of Alfred in the freezer (if you know, you know). Tomb Raider II includes the “Gold Mask” expansion, which adds five new bonus levels in a separate mini-adventure.
Tomb Raider III + “The Lost Artifact” Expansion
In Tomb Raider III, Lara follows the clues to a deadly secret combining challenging puzzles with high-speed action. “The Lost Artifact” includes six new levels that continue Lara’s adventures from the original Tomb Raider III.
A blockbuster franchise from 1996 that makes Ms. Croft one of the most recognisable adventurers of our time, this brings a fantastic opportunity for both fans and newcomers who may want to test Lara and her newly upgraded polygons in all their potential glory. Fans have been able to buy the originals on Steam for sometime, but players can now experience the journey and adventures of Lara in their own way on the console of their choice. Players will be able to toggle between enhanced and original graphics, as well as switching between control schemes. Lock on camera, and achievements/trophies for the hunters, as well as quality of life improvements, will all be available.
Tomb Raider I-III Remastered Starring Lara Croft will be available on PlayStation®5, PlayStation®4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC via Steam and GOG and is available for pre-order today. Information below about some additional savings:
Console players can pre-order with a 10% discount (Some restrictions apply, see retailers/platforms for details).
