To our utter joy, Tomb Raider Remastered retains its most iconic bug

The Tomb Raider corner bug is here to stay in Tomb Raider Remastered, and Aspyr’s got a treat in store for those who use it on PS5 and Xbox.

Tomb Raider Remastered corner bug: Lara Croft in her iconic blue tank top

Tomb Raider aficionados have booked it straight for the bugs to see if they still work in Aspyr’s restored version of the beloved classics, Tomb Raider Remastered. To our collective glee, not only does the famous Tomb Raider corner bug persist, but it’s even gotten its own Xbox achievement and PlayStation trophy.

As tested by ‘HappyCatClub’ on TikTok, Lara can still do the ol’ shimmy hop onto the rooftops of Croft Manor in Tomb Raider 2. As we can see from the footage, the archeologist levitates into an area she has absolutely no right to be in (though it is her house, to be fair). While the bug doesn’t serve a specific purpose here, Aspyr has introduced a shiny new achievement in the revamped edition of the original Tomb Raider – one of the best games ever – that requires you to exploit it.

Sometime during Tomb Raider’s development, the team at Core Design seemingly decided that it would be really funny to pop an unreachable Medipack on top of a pillar in Palace Midas. Well, the pack would be unreachable were it not for the iconic corner bug. In Tomb Raider Remastered the Medipack remains in the same spot it was nearly 20 years ago, waiting to be glitched up to. What’s more, if you do manage to snag it, you’ll also unlock the “You Corner Bug!” achievement or trophy for your troubles.

The Palace Midas Medipack isn’t the only classic reference Aspyr has paid homage to. While inside Croft Manor, butler Winston will continue to follow you around – that is unless you lock him in the freezer. A core memory for many Tomb Raider fans, putting Winston on ice in Remastered will earn you the “Crime and Punishment” achievement.

Indeed, in true remaster form it appears that the original Tomb Raider trilogy’s source code has remained intact, with Aspyr opting to give it the graphical overhaul it deserved. Sitting with a Metacritic score of 79, the collection has gone over fairly well with the critics, too. As such, if you’re looking for the definitive Tomb Raider experience, Aspyr’s remaster comes with all the buggy bells and whistles you loved in the originals.
