Nightdive Studios, the independent developer behind the widely successful System Shock Kickstarter, has just announced that their “restored and enhanced” remasters of Turok and Turok 2: Seeds of Evil will launch exclusively for the Xbox One on March 3, 2018, and are already available for pre-sale on the US Xbox Store.
Sink your teeth into the official pre-release trailer here:
According to the developer and early reviewers alike, Nightdive’s remaster is just as exciting and as action-packed as the 1997 Nintendo 64 classic and features:
Completely 3D Virtual World
Run, jump, climb in any direction in a fully 3D world, with the ability to independently look and aim your weapons up, down, or sideways.
Advanced Interactive Backgrounds
With particle technology cobwebs sway. Bubbles form rings on the water’s surface. Bullets ricochet. Trees explode into flames and crash to the ground. Waterfalls boil with foam.
14 Monstrous High-Tech Weapons
From the Grenade Launcher, Plasma Pulse Rifle, and Alien Weapon, to the Quad Rocket Launcher and, the mother of all guns, the Atomic Fusion Cannon!
Bionically Engineered Dinosaurs
Razor-toothed Raptors. Artillery-packing Triceratops. Alien Infantry and a Laser-Guided T-Rex. Following your every move with head-tracking technology.
While we’re yet to hear anything about an Australian release date or pricing for the pair, we’ll keep you updated. In the meantime, avid achievement hunters can check out the full list of Turok achievements here and Turok 2 achievements here.
