Could Tomb Raider: The Last Revelation Get A Remaster?

The fourth Tomb Raider installment could receive a similar overhaul to the first three recently released episodes.


Miss Lara has appeared in the first three Tomb Raiders in a modernized, remastered form (using the original engine). The beginnings of the IP started by Core Design are now available to modern audiences without the need to emulate the PS1 version, for example. Aspyr has done an honest job of adapting the first three episodes of the series, but there seems to be a hint of a fourth episode in the process.

On Twitter, @danthedan20 wrote that Lara Croft’s revamped story may continue, as the attached image shows signs of it. In the upper left corner you can see the release date for Tomb Raider I-III Remastered (02142024, which is February 14, 2024), and in the lower right corner you can see coordinates next to the word Next. The coordinates point to Giza, Egypt. This is also the location of Tomb Raider: The Last Revelation.

So this is an obvious hint from Aspyr, but there’s still no official confirmation that the studio will be handling the fourth Tomb Raider installment. This game seemed to end Lara’s story, as at the end of the story Von Croy (Lara’s mentor) flees the collapsing temple, leaving our protagonist in the ruins (under the ruins?) and putting a big question mark over her future. Of course, Core went on to make TWO sequels: Tomb Raider Chronicles was the fifth installment of the now tired formula, and Tomb Raider: The Angel of Darkness was the next-gen episode.

Tomb Raider: The Last Revelation was released in Europe in December 1999 for PS1 and PC, before the gun-toting treasure hunter was released on the SEGA Dreamcast in March 2000. The Mac port was released in June 2000. The game is still available for purchase on Steam today, and with the positive reception of Tomb Raider I-III Remastered, Aspyr may well be looking to remaster the fourth installment as soon as possible.
