Night Dive Studios’ remaster of the 1997 Turok videogame will come to PC on Dec. 17.

Night Dive’s Stephen Kick tells Eurogamer that this release will be a remaster of the PC version of the game, rather than the Nintendo 64 version. The remaster will feature enhanced visuals, and the following additional features:

  • Support for high resolutions, and widescreen.
  • Improved gameplay and level design.
  • OpenGL for video backend to provide portability and support for vertical sync.
  • Dynamic lighting, bloom, FXAA, enhanced water effects, lights shafts and more.
  • vAbility to freely rebind all keyboard, mouse, and gamepad inputs.
  • Steam Achievements.

Night Dive has already announced plans to remaster the game’s sequel, Turok 2: Seeds of Evil, for the PC.

Night Dive previously remastered System Shock and System Shock 2. That series is now receiving a brand new installment, System Shock 3, from OtherSide Entertainment.

Turok is a first-person shooter, originally developed by Iguana Entertainment and published by Acclaim Entertainment under the title Turok: Dinosaur Hunter. The game was based on the Acclaim Comics series Turok. Players control the titular Native American hero as he attempts to stop would-be universe conqueror Campaigner from using a powerful and ancient weapon to achieve his goal.
