Turok: Dinosaur Hunter and Turok 2: Seeds of Evil, a pair of classic first-person shooters from the N64 era, will be making their way to the Xbox One according to a tweet from developer Nightdive Studios.
Turok is a comic book character that originally debuted in the '70s before evolving into his current incarnation of a Native American warrior who roams The Lost Land, a mysterious world filled with dinosaurs, aliens, and all sorts of other nasties. While earlier versions used "Turok" for the name of the character, it has since transitioned to a title bestowed upon the warrior who must protect the barrier between the Lost Land and our world. A trailer has been released which will give you an idea of what the games are going to look and play like on a modern console:
The first game sees our hero working to collect the pieces of the Chronoscepter, a powerful artifact that can be used to break down the barriers between our world and The Lost Land. The Campaigner seeks to acquire this powerful artifact and it's up to Turok to stop him. Check out our review of the first game to see our thoughts on it. The sequel Turok 2: Seeds of Evil sees a new hero taking up the mantle of Turok. An alien called the Primagen seeks to escape its prison by destroying the Energy Totems that keep it safely locked away.
Nightdive Studios is the same company that was working on a System Shock remake that eventually had to go on hiatus while the company reorganizes their development efforts. If you're down for heading on a trip to nostalgia town and shooting some raptors in the head with a Cerebral Bore, you can pre-purchase Turok: Dinosaur Hunter (which has, for some reason, dropped the "Dinosaur Hunter" from its title) and Turok 2: Seeds of Evil via the Microsoft Store for the Xbox One. You can also grab both the first and second games via GOG (affiliate links) or Steam.
