PC Tomb Raider fans were abuzz this morning as Valve’s Steam client dropped a whopping 1GB patch for Lara Croft’s latest adventure. Coming so close to the launch of the polished-up Tomb Raider Definitive Edition on the Xbox One and PS4, PC gamers were hoping that the developers, Square-Enix, where going to show them some next-gen love.

The Tomb Raider Definitive Edition is a remastered version of the game, pulled apart and rebuilt specially for Microsoft and Sony’s new consoles. The improvements to the game include a remodeled Lara, realistic hair simulation, reworked lighting, improved textures and enhanced in-game characters.

As well as game enhancements, the Definitive Edition also includes all the DLC, a digital Dark Horse comic book and the interactive “making of” presentation, “The Final Hours”. The Tomb Raider Definitive Edition was released on 30th January for Xbox One and PS4.

Following the installation of the unannounced 1GB patch PC Tomb Raiders were surprised to find that the game’s dialogue was now in French. Furthermore the option to switch to English was no longer available in the pre-launch options.

Steam administrators confirmed that there was a problem and a fix was released later this morning. Unfortunately English-speaking gamers had to download another 1GB patch to get themselves back were they started.

Steam forum users are speculating, based on the game’s file changes as published on, that the problem was due an error made when files were being updated on the Steam database as part of Tomb Raider’s roll-out to Mac users.
