A group of game developers are creating a remake of an adventure game about the adventures of a Tomb Raider. Fresh screenshots show the Croft estate and the ATV. The fan-made remake, developed by the Nicobass team, is called Tomb Raider The Dagger Of Xian and Unreal Engine 4 will be used as the game engine.
A demo is already available and has recently received Photo Mode and a number of improvements. The animations of the main character have been improved, a number of bugs have been fixed, and overall performance has increased. At the same time, crows and fish appeared, and graphics were also improved – water rendering was added and dynamic lighting was implemented.
Tomb Raider 2 was released in 1997. Lara Croft followed the trail of Chinese legends to find Xian’s dagger. This is a legendary weapon with which the emperor of China could transform into a dragon from gold. The remake has been in development for several years, for the first time, it was widely available in 2017. Crystal Dynamics, the publisher and developer of the Tomb Raider series, gave the go-ahead to the project, but the authors will not be able to make money on it.
