Nightdive Studios’ remaster of the original Turok: Dinosaur Hunter has been available for sometime now, and shortly a remaster of its sequel will be coming to PC. You can look for Turok 2: Seeds of Evil on either Steam, GOG or Humble Bundle in just a few short weeks on March 16th. While being somewhat of a straight port with a fresh coat of paint, the game will also support new features like the ability to grapple ledges, increased character speed as well as a new multiplayer mode called “Last Turok Standing”. Most importantly though, you can now save anywhere so you’re no longer stuck searching for save points that are hours apart, a major complaint I had with the N64 original when I reviewed it a few years ago.
From Nightdive Studios:
Turok 2: Seeds of Evil is a first person shooter where players assume the role of Turok, an intrepid warrior, fighting their way through a host of new enemies, weapons, and missions. When the game was first released for the Nintendo 64 console, it sold over one million copies, making it a smash success. As Turok, players can run, jump, climb ladders, swim, dive underwater, and even explore a futuristic setting. The remastered game transports players into a sprawling environment with vicious enemies lurking behind every corner. Fans can look forward to new grotesque bosses and over 20 new weapons, including the skull-drilling favorite – The Cerebral Bore – that will send enemy brains flying!
In a thrilling new feature, Turok 2: Seeds of Evil also adds a multiplayer game mode in “Last Turok Standing” where players can battle with friends for an even more visceral gaming experience.
Both Turok: Dinosaur Hunter as well as Turok 2: Seeds of Evil were announced to be coming to Xbox One in March of last year, with other consoles to be determined at a later date. As of this writing however, not even the first game has been released on consoles and no updates have been given in approaching a year on the console ports.
