If they do this then it would also be nice to have a new port of TRU to go with it (and maybe also new ports of TRL and TRA while they're at it). :whi: :D

I got Underworld for 76p on Steam in anticipation.

This is probably nothing easy because
a) Legal reasons (obviously)
b) The Underworld PC port is rather old and also not that good. They would probably do a new port which makes use of current hard- and software. Maybe they could even manage to unlock the frame rate without the physics going wonky. And when they're doing that, then people would probably also demand new ports of Legend and Anniversary. :whi:
Recently while replaying the old Halo games in the Master Chief Collection on PC I thought to myself that I'm glad that those games weren't ported to PC when they were new because then the ports maybe would've been half-arsed and not the labours of love that they are now that these games are on PC. :D

I havent seen the latest stream yet, but saw summaries from people who watched it and apparently the DLC for Underworld coming to all platforms was mentioned. https://twitter.com/SmashLara/status...660225/photo/1

i would love to know exactly what was said. i don't want needless rumors spreading around. this whole thread spawned from meagan saying "we forward every request to our legal department" and somehow, in the fandom that translated into "they're 100% going to port beneath the ashes, lara's shadow, and the costume pack to pc and they're going to do it soon" when that was not what was being said at all.

Thank you, tlr online. Here is my direct transcript of what was being said

Meagan Marie: Um, the other one is kind of a non-update, but I'm--I'm sorry, but I wanted to at least give something. So, for the Tomb Raider: Underworld DLC, we are making progress on the legal side of things. But that's, you know, that's the only update I can say. We're--it's--we haven't forgotten about it, we're still pursuing it. It's something we're really passionate about, and we'll give you updates when we can.

Dallas Dickinson: And folks have--folks have the general context of, o-of, what the, the legal issue space is?

Meagan Marie: Uh, generally, yeah.

Dallas Dickinson: Yeah? Yeah, OK.

Megan Marie: That it was on the Microsoft... yep.

Dallas Dickinson: Exactly, exactly.

Megan Marie: So...

Dallas Dickinson: So, yep. Yep.

It would be so amazing if they also added trophy support and steam cloud saves :).

LateRaider 03-09-21 18:05

I heard there was an update on this during a TR: Legend stream. Does anyone have a source so I can provide a transcription? :)

edit - found it. 25:42 in this video https://www.twitch.tv/videos/1137780863?t=0h25m42s


Meagan: The other... thing, um, we've had lots of questions, so the other update was, we have had a lot of questions on the TR: Underworld DLC. So this is kind of like a, a, a good and a bad. This has been an adventure, so... heh, I learned quite a lot about legal, and development and all this sort of stuff. And the good news is that we made a lot of progress, um, and, and that's really exciting. The challenge is, that this will actually take dev resources to get the DLC... onto another platform, onto PC, u-um, because we have to update control schemes, and Q&A, and all of that kind of stuff. So, we currently don't have the allocate--the resources to allocate, to allocate to that. So, you know, we really, really, really, really tried to see if we could get this to happen this year. Likely... won't. However, um, you know, there--there, you know, we don't have a time frame for it, but things are... things are looking good, but we will, um, likely not have anything this year, and, and we'll try to figure out how we can get resources allocated to that, and--and in the future, it'll be something to look forward to. So, you know, it's--like I said, it's a pro and a con. We're excited that we made progress; we just need to figure out that challenge. Um... yeah.
