Despite the fact that Turok definitely doesn’t gel with the standards of first-person shooters today, it nonetheless serves as a great nostalgia trip with retro gameplay that is delightfully old-school. Just getting dropped into a foreboding area without being given any context and having to figure things out on your own is an experience that simply doesn’t exist in gaming today, and exploring the game’s expansive levels while coming into contact with hoards of increasingly viscous beasts is always a pleasure. If you want a good reason to take a trip back to the challenging 90’s FPS era, look no further than Night Dive Studios’ Turok: Dinosaur Hunter.

Turok’s back, baby! Night Dive Studios, who focus on restoring classic PC games, is currently working on remasters of both Turok: Dinosaur Hunter and Turok 2: Seeds of Evil. Both of these games were released in the mid 90’s and will feature enhanced graphics along with other improvements.
Here’s what the CEO of Night Dive Studios, Stephen Kick, has to say about these games:
“When Turok: Dinosaur Hunter was first released it was nothing short of revolutionary. To that point, no game had ever offered the combination of graphics and an open world environment that Turok featured. We are very excited to have the opportunity to bring this great franchise back to life and to be able to share these great titles with today’s gaming audience.”
More information on the games will be released later this year, but in the meantime you can check out some screenshots from the upcoming remasters directly below.
