The classic dinosaur hunting game has been remastered with modern HD processing capabilities, and will release on PC on 17th December.
Originally available on the N64 in 1997, Turok: Dinosaur Hunter, developed by Iguana Entertainment, saw Native American hunter Turok fight against hordes of primeval beasts like Tyrannosaurs and Velociraptors.
This new remastered edition has been developed by Night Dive Studios, who are typically known for acquired older IPs and breathing new life into them on modern platforms. They have previously worked on System Shock 2.
Night Dive executive Stephen Kick clarified to Eurogamer that this remaster is actually based on the PC edition, which was released a few months after the N64 version.
Turok’s latest iteration will feature support for high resolution and widescreen monitors, improved gameplay, altered level designs, controller remapping, achievements, and more. The HD visuals will include bloom, dynamic lighting, god rays, and enhanced water effects. Achievement hunters will also get to enjoy a full range of Steam achievements.
Not content with just remastering one Turok outing, Night Dive has also revealed that they will develop a modern edition of the sequel, Turok 2: Seeds of Evil.
