Continuing the trend of tickling our nostalgia nerves with remasters, Night Dive Studios, the developer/publisher behind the System Shock and System Shock 2 enhanced editions, has announced that it’s also going to bring back Turok 2: Seeds of Evil. Night Dive has already released a revamped version of the original Turok, but now it’s doubling down on its dinosaurs with its sequel, too.
Initially released back in 1998 on the Nintendo 64, Turok 2 built upon the original dinosaur-hunting title by adding new weapons, bigger levels, and new enemies to take down, but its biggest addition was multiplayer. That’s part of the reason the remastering of the classic has everyone so excited.
However, as with a lot of these older games, the messy rights can often mean keeping things under wraps until something concrete can be said. In this case, Night Dive has said it can finally tell us that Turok 2 is in the works.
Other than that, though, it’s remaining rather quiet. The process of getting the old code working on modern operating systems isn’t an easy one though, which is why Night Dive isn’t saying any more just yet.
“In our quest to bring you the most authentic experience at the highest quality level available we’ve decided to give Turok 2 the love it deserves and release the game ‘when it’s done,’ which is why all we’ve been able to say is this: “Turok 2 is coming!”” Night Dive said in a statement on the official Steam page (via EG).
All of this means we don’t exactly know when Turok 2 will make its reappearance on the PC. If you need to kill some dinosaurs today though, the original that Night Dive released not too long ago is available.
To tide you over though, here’s a video of Turok 2‘s Cerebral Bore in action, making the No. 3 spot in IGN’s top guns in gaming history. We couldn’t agree more.
