Tomb Raider: The original '90s trilogy is coming to PS4 & PS5

To quote the video game legend herself: "Aha..."

The first Tomb Raider game arrived on the PS One, PC and the Sega Saturn (who remembers that one??) in 1996, and the game proved to be such a massive hit that sequels were immediately put into production, with Tomb Raider II arriving in 1997 and Tomb Raider III in 1998.


In the nearly 30 years since that first game, there have been 20 entries in the Tomb Raider franchise, including a total reboot in 2013, which landed on the PS3, Xbox 360 and PC.

But that first trilogy of games still holds a special place in the hearts of gamers of a certain age, with many hoping that they might get a total next-gen remake.

While this new announcement isn't quite that, it is the closest we're likely going to get to it, as those first three games are set to get a remastered re-release on current-gen consoles, with enhanced graphics to match.


The trilogy of Tomb Raider games will come with some exclusive new levels

Upon the news of the remastered re-release, the official PlayStation blog had this to say:

"The iconic hero’s epic adventures will now be beautifully presented on PS4 & PS5 with enhanced graphics, allowing longtime fans and brand-new players to experience the timeless magic of the Tomb Raider franchise like never before. Not only will the original three games be remastered, but players will be able to experience the corresponding expansions for each entry for the first time on consoles.


"From the treacherous tombs of Peru in the original Tomb Raider to the awe-inspiring sights of Venice in Tomb Raider II and the mystical realm of India in Tomb Raider III, players will embark on a nostalgic journey filled with breathtaking landscapes and ingenious puzzles. Dust off your gear, sharpen your wits, and prepare to step into Lara Croft’s adventurous shoes once again as we accompany Lara on her original globe-trotting expeditions."

Tomb Raider I/II/III Remastered will be launched on PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PC and Nintendo Switch on 14 February 2024.
