Nightdive Studios is at it again, digging up a classic game, freshening it up a bit, and re-releasing it on the PC. This time around? We’re getting Turok 2: Seeds of Evil.
It’s like Turok Tuesday all over again
One of the best shooter series’ on the N64, Turok sort of hit it’s pique with Turok 2. The game had it all with excellent graphics and control, and a sick amount of awesome weapons and baddies to use ’em on. Of course, after T2, the series went straight into a downward spiral, but let’s not harp on that.
Bottom line: Turok 2 is back and heading to PC in March.
An update for a classic
Stephen Kick, CEO and Founder of Nightdive Studios, explains, “Turok 2: Seeds of Evil does more than just continue the series. From the moment that a player first begins their quest in the Port of Adia, they will face a whole new series of challenges and puzzles to solve. Players will also get to use a whole new series of weapons to overcome these challenges. And best of all, players will get to use these weapons against their friends in multiplayer mode!”
Yes, there will be multiplayer in addition to the main quest. Nightdive usually goes all out for these ports, and that’s a very good thing in this case. As I mentioned, T2 was a fantastic game, and stood out among a roster of games on the N64 that included some pretty awesome FPS’.
More from Kick:
Stephen Kick added, “When restoring these classic games, it is important to ensure that they will play on as many different computer hardware configurations as possible. Working with Intel allows our developers to tune the game’s performance to achieve those results.” As a member of the Intel game development community, Nightdive Studios relies on Intel’s tools to optimize game PC performance and to ensure compatibility with today’s modern computers.
Ready for Turok 2? The game officially debuts tomorrow (March 1st) at GDC in San Francisco, and hits the PC on the 16th. You’ll be able to grab a copy then via Steam, GOG, or the Humble Store.
