Turok Remastered is a nostalgic treat, and it’s out this week

Developer Night Dive Studios is bringing Turok: Dinosaur Hunter and Turok 2: Seeds of Evil to PC this week.

Many of us hold nostalgic memories of the original Turok games on Nintendo 64, and now we can revisit them in all their remastered glory.

Developer Night Dive Studios is releasing both Turok: Dinosaur Hunter and Turok 2: Seeds of Evil in a remastered bundle for PC.

Each game has received an assortment of visual upgrades; including improved character models, draw distance and frame rate.

Now you can slaughter fire-breathing dinosaurs and giant insects without trudging through a dense fog to find them.

Night Dive Studios is also responsible for the modern re-releases of System Shock 2, Shadowman and Starlord.

The developer is busy working on the upcoming remake of System Shock 2 for PC, after successfully launching an enhanced edition of the original game.

Turok Remastered will be available from Steam, GOG and The Humble Store from Thursday, December 17.

The original Turok: Dinosaur Hunter released in March 1997 for the Nintendo 64, later coming to PC in the same year.

Developed by the now defunct Acclaim Studios, Turok was a critical and commercial success, and is still one of the most beloved N64 titles.

Two sequels, Turok 2: Seeds of Evil and Turok: Evolution followed in 1999 and 2002, but failed to leave the same impact as the original.

Who can forget the awful reboot from 2008, which felt boring and prehistoric (sorry) compared to modern shooters.
