Turok 2: Seeds of Evil Coming to PC Next Month

The remastered dinosaur hunting game will add multiplayer to the mix.

It's been 20 years since the original Turok dinosaur hunter game hit PC. It was remastered in late 2015 - and added to Xbox One a few months later - and then Nightdive Studios said late last year that a remake of Turok 2: Seeds of Evil was on the horizon as well. The horizon is not far off any more as the developer has revealed a March 16 release date for the remastered dinosaur hunting game.

To add a little bonus to the game, Nightdive has added a multiplayer mode called Last Turok Standing.

"Turok 2: Seeds of Evil does more than just continue the series," Nightdive CEO Stephen Kick said. "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.”

Nightdive just released a level editor for the Turok remaster in January.

The game was a critical hit when it first came out back in 1998 with interesting gameplay and some fun weapons. The game didn't age well, and Nightdive was fairly mum about any remake until it posted on its blog about it, explaining licensing problems over rights to the game.

Turok 2: Seeds of Evil is available for pre-order on Steam.

      Oh fuck yes!

      True story, I used to take my n64 and this game to middle school in the morning and play for an entire period (somehow I had a free period).

        I remember this game locking up on me a lot. I had the RAM expansion, I don't remember if it was mandatory or not. Bizarre to me at the time that a console game could have bugs.

        Well, except for that time DOOM for the Jaguar crashed on the last level of Episode 1 and dumped DOS text on the screen. That was cool.

          I doubt it would run without expansion. It was choppy in some areas even with the extra ram.

      Looking at Wikipedia - holy shit I never knew there was a Turok 3 on the N64. I remember Turok: Rage Wars coming out and being a big nothing but I never knew about the third numbered game.

        Wasn't rage wars the multi focused game that tried to ride the goldeneye wave? And presumably failed?

        The premise sounds fun, wish it was on PC.

        Turok 3 was really different. Had two playable characters, both with different weapons.

        The worst things was that the cheat codes were terrible and not easy to remember like BEWAREOBLIVIONISATHAND

      Wonder how many bought the PC remaster and actually completed without cheat codes.

      Maybe.

      This game was a hot fucking mess of bad enemy/ammo balance in ways that made Shadow Warrior look thoughtfully designed, but I'm hopeful that the rerelease will either have some sort of rebalancing or support mods to rebalance it.

        Yeah, but that's why we had cheats. I'll never forget the master cheat code for Turok 2 on N64

      Damn I loved this game on my N64, even though it ran at like 8 FPS most of the time and looked like an N64 game. It will probably look crazy on a PC.
