Cult classics 'Turok' and 'Turok 2: Seeds of Evil' up for preorder on Xbox One

The Turok games are iconic first-person shooters which continue to influence many modern titles even to this day. Despite releasing roughly twenty years ago, they remain enjoyable experiences due to their great shooting mechanics.

A few years ago, Nightdive Studios announced that it was planning on remastering the titles for Xbox One. Since then, their release dates were shrouded in mystery but today both games — Turok and Turok 2: Seeds of Evil — went up for preorder on the console. Luckily, they're launching together on March 2, 2018 so the wait isn't that long.


Turok takes place in a world where time has no meaning, and evil knows no bounds. Torn from a world long gone, the time traveling warrior Turok finds himself thrust into a savage land rife with conflict. An evil overlord known as "The Campaigner" seeks to shred the fabric of time and rule the universe using an ancient artifact known as "The Chronoscepter". The Chronoscepter was shattered thousands of years ago in an effort to keep it from falling into evil hands. Turok vows to find the eight pieces spread throughout the Lost Land and put an end to The Campaigner's scheme.

Turok 2: Seeds of Evil

Turok 2: Seeds of Evil continues right after the events of the first game. After having defeated The Campaigner, Turok throws The Chronocepter into a waiting volcano to destroy it. Unfortunately, the blast awakens an even deadlier force known as "The Primagen". Once again a Turok is tasked with restoring peace to the land and stopping The Primagen from merging Earth with the Nether World.

Hopefully Turok and Turok 2: Seeds of Evil will be great experiences and run smoothly even on Xbox One upon release.

  • I'm guessing no physical copy of the game?
  • It's a small download so I don't think it'll ever get a physical release on Xbox One.
  • 20 bucks each?? Dang, that seems a little high for games that are 2 decades old methinks
  • For some reason the 1st game link works but the 2nd game doesn't
  • Try opening the links in a "Private Window". Sometimes it happens on the Microsoft Store and you have to erase stored website information.
  • Holy Guacamole, xbox just got alot better. I hopefully they atleast remastered it. The graphics although pretty decent for the N64, not sure how they will hold up now. Also does Turok 2 come with the Jumper pack? 😂. For those who don't know, the jumper pack supposedly increased the difficulty of the enemies in the game. This sure brings back alot of memories, especially 4 player multiplayer. I wonder if the master cheat "beware oblivion is at hand" still works lol. We used to use replay levels. Easiest code to remember.
  • Lol. Great shooter mechanics...noone says that about it now.
