It was only last week that Night Dive Studios were showing off the first screenshots of the Turok remaster (the N64/PC version, not the awful 360/PS3 reboot). But now we’ve got a release date — and it’s much sooner than most were expecting.
According to the teaser trailer posted today, Night Dive’s touch up of the 1997 dinosaur shooter will be available of Steam, Good Old Games and the Humble Bundle store in three days. That’s not a bad time for a classic FPS to come out, right before the weekend.
Between this, the Serious Sam series and the Jedi Knight games, you could have a pretty cracking weekend just going through old shooters. But I’m going off on a tangent now. Let’s just enjoy the trailer.
There’s something about shooting dinosaurs that just makes a video game great. There’s also something about shooting dinosaurs using their tiny arms to shoot guns of their own that makes games even better. Here’s the cutaway from the trailer in case you missed that little gem.
Night Dive has also confirmed on their Facebook page that their next project is to remaster Turok 2, and that they “may have the opportunity” to tackle the rest of the series. “Our plans are to remaster Turok 2 for the time being,” the studio said in a reply to a user comment.
It’s not yet known how much Night Dive is charging for the remastered Turok, but they did reveal that it will have full controller support from launch.
