Tomb Raider 1-5 hit Steam

Square Enix releases original action adventure games through Valve's online store for $10 each; Angel of Darkness missing.


Tomb Raider fans will need to wait until 2013 to play Lara Croft's next adventure, but those looking to relive her past can now download the first entries in the series from Steam.

No Caption Provided

The original Tomb Raider, Tomb Raider 2, Tomb Raider 3, Tomb Raider: The Last Revelation, and Tomb Raider: Chronicles are each available now on Steam for $10 each.

An unspecified issue is keeping Tomb Raider: Angel of Darkness from showing in the store, but Square Enix said it is working on making the game available.

The Tomb Raider reboot--which spans 12-15 hours--is due March 5, 2013 for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC. It was originally planned to launch during fall 2012.

Tomb Raider is the first installment in the series since 2010's downloadable multiplayer-focused Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light, and the first standalone game since 2008's Tomb Raider: Underworld.

Can I get all 5 for $35?

Avatar image for bdous

Tomb Raider 1-5 ,for me at least, are the best games ever made.I repeat for me at least

Avatar image for Rennik_Repotsir

@bdous I agree; except for 3; as you can see; that is not for me.

Avatar image for pozium

@Rennik_Repotsir @bdous I think tomb raider 3 is the best in the series after tombraider 1

Avatar image for bdous

@Rennik_Repotsir You didn't like tomb raider 3 ?

Avatar image for bdous

@l3igl3oss @Rennik_Repotsir Personally i think tomb raider 3 the best game in the frachise

Avatar image for l3igl3oss

@bdous @Rennik_Repotsir Tomb Raider 3 has the best set of moves in terms of balance and how they are used in the level design, in my opinion. Nice selection of weapons and exotic destinations too. Its only flaw is the disjointed story.

I never got into these for some reason. Looking forward to the new one though...

DON"T BUY THIS ON STEAM! You can get Tomb Raider 1-3 together on Gog for $9.99, Tomb Raider: The Last Revelation and Tomb Raider Chronicles together on Gog for $9.99! So, it's a much better deal, plus they're all DRM free.

@starduke how much you wanna bet that squeenix makes gog take down those games or make them raise their prices. otherwise nobody has any reason to buy them here.

Avatar image for theimortal2

@starduke sorry i meant steam not here.

Avatar image for theimortal2

@starduke why would anybody buy they five games on steam for 50 dollars when they can get them for more than 50% less somewhere else?

$1.99 Nude Patch DLC to come.

lol I don't think many people want to play Angel of Darkness anyway.

Avatar image for SteamyPotatoes

@soulless4now I do :( , on the bright side it has just appeared in the steam store :) , finished TR 5 about 10 years ago lol , time for a conclusion.

Avatar image for Rivboets7

I wish the Xbox could get these to. I can say I'm looking forward to the new Tomb Raider! Looks great!

Avatar image for HappyBB

$10 a piece is just too expensive for these old games, regardless of how good they are!

Avatar image for SolidTy

Square Enix owns Tomb Raider and Hitman...

I can't wait for the next Kingdom Hearts!!!!!

Avatar image for 96augment

@SolidTy We have been waiting too damn long.

Avatar image for alien33

Don't rush to buy these guys! Steam will offer them for at least half the price on the Christmas sale!!!

Avatar image for gDamascus

@alien33 Wouldn't be surprised at all to see them at $2.50 or below.

The only installment you should buy on Steam is TR:TLR, because the version available on PSN is missing a few elements and has multiple game-ending bugs (I got hit by one on one of the pyramid levels late into the game, via the metal gate challenge where if you go into a certain gate first, you'll cause the buttons that you have to press in a combination to not reset).However, the rest shouldn't be missed on PSN; they're $5.99 each (US) and serve the purpose well. At $10 a pop, you're getting ripped off given how old and untouched they are.

It's €10,- per game in Europe, so that's even more expensive. If I didn't own them already I would never buy them at that price. €2,50 per game is a good price. Those games are 15 years old.

Just for those of you wondering, chronologically the order goes:

Tomb Raider

Tomb Raider II

Tomb Raider III

Tomb Raider: The Last Revelation

Tomb Raider Chronicles

Tomb Raider: The Angel of Darkness

Tomb Raider: Legend

Tomb Raider: Anniversary

Tomb Raider: Underworld

Tomb Raider (...again)

hi, i'm only hear to say, tomb raider 1, i know we don't see each other much any more but, i still love you.

Avatar image for l3igl3oss

I would only recommend getting Tomb Raider 1 and Last Revelations. Those two capture the real essence of tomb raiding.

Avatar image for Warlord_Irochi

They missed "Angel of Darkness". Good marketing move, Eidos :D

Avatar image for GSyyMega_LoseryyGS


Eidos is dead =(

they are merged with squenix now.

Avatar image for wexorian

i still have all on PSone if i wnat replay i'l play em , still amazing games compared to crap that will be unleashed in march.

Avatar image for Arkhalipso

@wexorian the game it's not out yet and it looks very good, how come you hate it?

Avatar image for lumbergoose

@Arkhalipso @wexorian I'm guessing because it seems to be an action game instead of an exploration/puzzle game.

Avatar image for wexorian

@lumbergoose @Arkhalipso Exacly i think it won't be hardcore as it should.

Avatar image for obsequies

good games..but they should definitely cost half that

Avatar image for SciFiCat

GOG has had these titles for quite a while and DRM free as well, why is this news?

Avatar image for GreggD


Yup yup, ten dollars for the first three, ten for the next two, and I think 5.99 for AoD.

Avatar image for GreggD


Okay, apparently AoD is ten as well. Still a way better deal, all things considered.

Avatar image for brucies_bubbles

@SciFiCat And cheaper as well

Avatar image for grnionio

@brucies_bubbles @SciFiCat Indeed, WAY cheaper! I already bought them from there. GOG has been my saviour for games like Divine Divinity, Tomb Raider and Empire Earth <3

Avatar image for Azghouls

@SciFiCat Exactly.

Avatar image for Amster_G

Nice. I already put the first one in my cart :) However, I do think $9.99 is a little steep for such an old game. I personally think $4.99 would've been sweet.

Avatar image for brxricano

damn GS do you need a link every other sentence?? anyways am i crazy or does that screenshot still actually look good after all these years?

Avatar image for Iffy350

I would pay a dollar for I & II. $20 bucks for each is WAY too much. Both games haven't held up very well.

Avatar image for toddx77

They are only $6.99 each for me for some reason.

Avatar image for chronocommander

GoG has the first 3 for $10, then 4 and angel of darkness, all DRM-free, much better deal, only missing link being TR5:Chronicles. I'm surprised Steam's receiving these so late!

Avatar image for jayjay444

Tomb Raider 1, 2, and 3, are the best in the franchise by far, think i will pick them up next time i have spare money.

Avatar image for Race

I wonder if there is any chance that TR3 will include the TR Gold levels ("Unfinished Business" and "Shadow of the Cat").

Avatar image for Mozuckint

Sorry Steam...GOG just has the better deal.

No DRM is also a big plus :x
