Turok 2 Remaster Set for March 16 Release on PC

Nightdive Studios has announced the release date for their Turok 2: Seeds of Evil remaster.

The classic first-person shooter sequel will launch for PC on March 16th via both Steam, the Humble Store, and GOG. Featured above, you can view a new trailer for the remaster.

Developed by Iguana Entertainment and released back in 1998 for the Nintendo 64, the newly remastered version is coming just in time for the game’s 19th anniversary. The game is up-scaled via a modern renderer, including updated light maps, shadows, super-sampling, and more.

The game also sports new additions like new environments, weapons, puzzles, and even a new multiplayer mode titled “Last Turok Standing.” The game also had maneuverability and character speed increased, AI has been improved, you can now grapple ledges, a quick warp was added, and you can save/load anywhere.

Here’s a rundown on the game, via NightDive:

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.

    Makes me wonder, are these HD remasters a sign of a reboot or something?

    Took a while longer than expected, glad it’s almost here. I’m guessing it’ll be $20 like the first one. Still a bit too pricey for me, but it’s a little more justified here with online multiplayer.

    I’d like for it to be ported to Switch.

    Just wait five or six years and it’ll get a port on Nintendo’s next console :^)

    I remember the mutliplayer for Seeds of Evil being utter garbage but also the best fun; the kind of unique gaming experience only the mid-90s could provide.

    Playing as the raptor and chasing people was hilarious.

    Doubt it. The company making them specializes in this kind of thing, probably because its easy enough to make it and has a loyal audience willing to buy it. However, if it sells really well, I could see it influencing a decision to make a modern Turok. Who knows.

    This is great and all, but where is our promised Powerslave remaster?

    Last I heard it was tangled up in legal problems and probably not going to happen

    Legal issues unfortunately. The beta he released is still fully playable from start to finish with very few bugs, and easy enough to find on torrent sites. He also released the source code recently.

    Oh I still have it from when he released it, but I remember him mentioning in the comments he planned to include in the eventual official release some stuff from the Sega Saturn version as well.
