Night Dive Studios has announced that they are working on a remastered version of the classic shooters, Turok: Dinosaur Hunter and Turok 2: Seed of Evil for the PC.
Turok: Dinosaur Hunter and Turok 2: Seed of Evil were originally released for the Nintendo 64 along with the PC back in the late 90’s. Night Dive Studios plans to restore these classics and release them either through their own site or through digital distribution services like Steam.
CEO of Night Dive Studios, Stephen Kick, has stated,
“When Turok: Dinosaur Hunter was first released it was nothing short of revolutionary. To that point, no game had ever offered the combination of graphics and an open world environment that Turok featured. We are very excited to have the opportunity to bring this great franchise back to life and to be able to share these great titles with today’s gaming audience.”
No release date has been made available at the moment.
