In late 2015 Night Dive Studios released a remastered version of Turok: Dinosaur Hunter. Now it's done the same for its sequel, Turok 2: Seeds of Evil.
Originally released in 1998 for the N64, Turok 2 sees everybody's favourite dinosaur hunter return in an adventure consisting of 35 enemy types, 20 weapons and six levels. It also added multiplayer.
This updated version of Turok 2 features enhanced graphics, improved enemy AI, new gameplay mechanics (like scaling ledges), and new multiplayer features like an option for split-screen in online matches and a new "Last Turok Standing" mode.
A revived Turok 2 is still in the works, despite radio silence from the developers.
Turok: Dinosaur Hunter and its sequel, Turok 2: Seeds of Evil, will see their remastered editions coming to Xbox One, the developer of the restoration has announced.
Night Dive Studios previously brought Iguana Entertainment's 1997 dinosaur shooter to PC in December with improved graphics, gameplay and level design. The studio previously noted that it would be providing the same remastered treatment to its sequel.
The first Turok Remastered just received a Mac port last month.
UPDATE 15/12/2015 10.09am: Developer Night Dive Studios' Stephen Kick has outlined to Eurogamer the following enhancements in its Turok restoration:
Support for high resolutions, and widescreen.
Improved gameplay and level design.
Developer Night Dive Studios has released new screenshots from the Turok remaster project. Remember how, in the 1997 original, you could barely see your hands in front of you for all that fog? Well now you can! You can see way into the distance! No need to hide the texture pop-in these days.
Night Dive released an Enhanced Edition of System Shock recently, and is working on an entire re-imagining of the game, too. A sole screenshot has been posted on Night Dive's website teasing that project.
Night Dive announced in August that it would be remastering Turok 1 and 2, but didn't say anything about when the projects would be complete - and still hasn't. Both games are in for enhanced graphics and "other" improvements.
Cult classic Jurassic shooters Turok: Dinosaur Hunter and Turok 2: Seeds of Evil are being brought back to life for a PC re-release.
Both are being re-animated by Night Dive Studios, which previously worked on restoring System Shock 2.
The games will get "enhanced graphics and other improvements" and be sold through Steam, Humble, GOG, GamersGate and Greenman Gaming.
Classic 1997 shooter Turok: Dinosaur Hunter looks like it will be getting a re-release on PC.
Native American actor Adam Bleach, who we've never heard of, looks set to star in a big-screen adaptation of Turok.
