Classic first-person shooters Turok: Dinosaur Hunter and Turok 2: Seeds of Evil are set for a spit and polish before a PC re-release, thanks to the new rights owner of the series. Night Drive Studios, established in 2013 by Stephen Kick, has a habit of picking up the rights to classic games and cleaning them up for new systems – as it did two years ago with spiritual predecessor to BioShock, System Shock 2 – and the developer has been quick to snap up Turok and Turok 2, both of which ripe for updates.
Turok: Dinosaur Hunter and Turok 2: Seeds of Evil will be available through Steam, the Humble Bundle store, GOG, GamersGate, Greenman Gaming, and the Night Dive Studios website.
Kick, who is CEO as well as founder of Night Drive Studios, said:
“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.”
We are still awaiting official release dates for both games.
