There’s a fan remake of Tomb Raider: The Angel of Darkness in development right now, and the team has finally released the first proper look at the game – a video showcasing the updated Lara Croft model in her casual jeans look and a short snippet of new gameplay.
The remake – dubbed Tomb Raider: The Angel of Darkness 1.5 – is being worked on by lead developer Julian Guba (a.k.a. FreakRaider) and character model creator Konrad Majewski. The pair are using Unreal Engine 4 to completely remake the most maligned of all the Tomb Raider games – similar to the fan remake of Tomb Raider 2, The Dagger of Xi’an.
It’s been in development for over five years now, but it sounds like the developers are nearly ready to properly reveal it. The new video released shows off Konrad’s highly detailed Lara Croft model, boasting 150,000 polygons, subsurface scattering, 4K textures, and realistic hair shading – not to mention some cool animations, facial expressions, and a Lady Gaga Easter egg.
