Embracer announced an internal restructuring program in June last year after it failed to close a $2 billion deal with Saudi Arabia’s Savvy Games group, and since then, across all of its studios, it has laid off a startling number of people.

This will be a unique story for us to write, so we need to give some context to it all. Humanity is nothing if not arrogant regarding what it feels it can “get away with” and how it can “showcase things it knows little about.” It’s these kinds of beliefs that have led to stereotypical depictions of various races throughout media for over a hundred years. Movies, TV shows, and, yes, video games have all partaken in this, and society has tried to do better once they were called out for it. The Tomb Raider 1-3 Remastered collection is one such title that is a “product of the times,” and Crystal Dynamics wants you to be keenly aware of that.

Don't worry, Lara's tank controls are still an option in Tomb Raider I-III Remastered

As the release of the (deep breath) Tomb Raider I-III Remastered Starring Lara Croft approaches (yes, that is its full and official Steam title) on February 14th, developers Aspyr have detailed some of the game's new features over on the PlayStation Blog, and how they've approached bringing the art, controls and effects up to date for 2023. Personally, I'm extremely pleased to see they've added a photo mode, for example, as I spent inordinate amounts of time making Lara do creepy side-eye smiles during inappropriate Shadow Of The Tomb Raider scenes. But I'm also heartened to see they've kept in the original tank controls as an optional extra, alongside a more modern control scheme to make them more approachable.
