The remastered versions of Turok and Turok 2: Seeds of Evil will launch on the Xbox One on March 2 for $19.99 each. 

View the trailer for both games below:

Here is an overview of both games:

Turok

Turok is back and no dinosaur is safe! When it was first released in 1997, Turok introduced gamers to a world teeming with cunning enemies, traps, puzzles and deadly weapons all within a vast 3D environment ready to explore. Now the classic game has been restored and enhanced with a new visual engine and exciting new features to sink your teeth into!

The Lost Land…

A world where time has no meaning – and evil knows no bounds. Torn from a world long gone, the time traveling warrior Turok has found himself thrust into a savage land torn by conflict. An evil overlord known as ‘The Campaigner’ seeks to shred the fabric of time and rule the universe using an ancient artifact known as ‘The Chronoscepter’. The Chronoscepter was shattered thousands of years ago in an effort to keep it from falling into evil hands. The Campaigner has constructed a massive focusing array which he plans to use to magnify and pervert the power of the Chronoscepter in order to shatter the barriers between the ages and rule the universe. Turok has vowed to find the eight pieces of the Chronoscepter spread throughout the Lost Land and put an end to The Campaigner’s evil plot…

To learn more you must enter the world of Turok.

Key Features:

  • Completely 3D Virtual World
  • Run, jump, climb in any direction in a fully 3D world, with the ability to independently look and aim your weapons up, down, or sideways.
  • Intelligent Enemies Programmed for Ferocity
  • Variable aggression profiles make each enemy behave uniquely.
  • 14 Monstrous High-tech Weapons
  • From the Grenade Launcher, Plasma Pulse Rifle and Alien Weapon, to the Quad Rocket Launcher and, the mother of all guns, the Atomic Fusion Cannon!

  • Cobwebs sway. Bubbles form rings on the water’s surface. Bullets ricochet. Trees explode into flames and crash to the ground. Waterfalls boil with foam.
  • Bionically Engineered Dinosaurs
  • Razor-toothed Raptors. Artillery-packing Triceratops. Alien Infantry and a Laser-Guided T-Rex. Following your every move with head-tracking technology.

Turok 2: Seeds of Evil

Having defeated the Campaigner, Turok throws the Chronocepter into a waiting volcano to destroy it. Unfortunately the blast awakens an even deadlier force – The Primagen. Once again a Turok is tasked with restoring peace to the land and stopping the Primagen from merging Earth with the nether world.

The Dinosaur Hunter Returns

Fight your way through 35 different types of enemies with bouncing bellies, blinking eyes, stretching tentacles and snapping jaws. From Prehistoric Raptors, to evolved Flesh Eaters, to your final battle with the Mother of all beasts— you’ll want to defeat all of them!

Enemies are intelligent! They’re smart enough to attack in groups, to flee when they are outgunned, and to take cover during a firefight.

Enemies flinch and spasm differently depending on which body part you hit.

Key Features:

  • Remastered Locations – Conquer 6 engrossing Quest Levels including the Port of Adia, the Death Marshes and the Lair of the Blind Ones.
  • Over 20 Weapons – Unload multiple ricocheting shotgun shells with the Shredder. Send brains flying with the skull-drilling Cerebral Bore, a fan favorite. Stomp enemies flat while riding an artillery-mounted Triceratops!
  • New Multiplayer – The new Multiplayer mode lets you battle with your friends. Using the best levels, weapons, and visuals from both the PC and Nintendo 64 versions, players will encounter a fun and visceral multiplayer experience.
    Players can also choose between a few skins for their character in combat.

20 bucks each? Get it out of my face right now


COKTOE (on 24 February 2018)

Jeez, I missed that. Thought it was $20 for both. For what's on offer that's pretty expensive.

They come to PS4/Switch I'd by them both in a heartbeat.


Helloplite (on 24 February 2018)

This is not a remaster, but a slightly upgraded resolution and texture port. Geometry is the same. And is that N64 fog?


S.Peelman (on 25 February 2018)

At first I thought this trailer started with showing the original version. But then the trailer ended. :-P


Goddbless (on 26 February 2018)

Same here!

It's nice to see these on Xbox One, however, $20 for each??? Daaaang!!! It should be $20 for both games.


Ganoncrotch (on 24 February 2018)

Is this an option for people who want a game like Ark but at 60fps?


AngryLittleAlchemist (on 24 February 2018)

HAHAHHAHAHHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHHAHHAHAHAHHAHAHAHHAHAHAHHAHAHAHHAHAAAAAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAAHAHHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAAAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAAAAAAAHAHHAHAAAAAAAAHAHAHAHAAHAHAHAHHHHHHHHHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHA

My god this is good news I loved these games on the N64 and even thought am a Xbox player I hope PlayStation get it to so if it sells well they might even make a proper sequel


DialgaMarine (on 25 February 2018)

Hopefully these get released on PS4 eventually. I wouldn't mind playing through them again.


Puppyroach (on 25 February 2018)

Way to expensive, but I'm guessing it will release on Game pass the same day so that won't be an issue.


SanAndreasX (on 24 February 2018)

It'd be kind of cool if these games came to the Switch, since they were popular on the N64.


NoirSon (on 25 February 2018)

$20 each is pretty expensive for a up resolution port of N64 games in 2018. If this was a olive branch to try to revive the brand among the game industry they chose the method poorly.


CaptainExplosion (on 25 February 2018)

Wait, why is the blood purple in the trailer?


GoOnKid (on 25 February 2018)

Aaaahh, the memories :)


Mr Puggsly (on 24 February 2018)

At the very least it would have been nice to see a graphics upgrade like Perfect Dark on 360. Still a lot better than playing on an actual N64 though at 10-15 fps or whatever they ran at during action.


SanAndreasX (on 24 February 2018)

It actually ran pretty fast on N64. A lot of that was due to the fog covering the draw-in though.

I remember when i was 6 and a friend let me borrow Turok 1. At the time i was amazed by it, may have to buy this.


COKTOE (on 24 February 2018)

I had fun with these on the N64, especially Turok 2 which was fairly big improvement over the original. I have to wonder how big the audience for these is though. Best of luck to the dev team.


Ruggarell (on 24 February 2018)

But no PS4 version?


Azzanation (on 24 February 2018)

Awesome, I have both Turok games on N64 and Steam and will definite pick these two up again. Great franchise, unfortunately its dead now. They were the pinicle the FPS at the time and the first games to make killing robot dinosaurs cool. Like Half Life 3, I am still waiting for Turok 4.


Ka-pi96 (on 24 February 2018)

Pinnacle of FPS at the time? :O Weren't they at the same time as GoldenEye and Perfect Dark though?

Azzanation (on 25 February 2018)

Yeah they were and they were up there with the best of them. Unfortanly no one could compete with Rare at the time and took most of the spot light.
