Turok 3: Shadow of Oblivion Remaster is Coming Later This Year

Nightdive Studios

Nightdive Studios has just revealed that they will be releasing a remake of Turok 3: Shadow of Oblivion soon. The remaster of Turok 3 will be available for purchase on the PC, PlayStation, Nintendo Switch, and Xbox platforms. The addition of support for Steam Decks is also on the agenda, which is quite exciting. You may view the trailer for Turok 3: Shadow of Oblivion below:

Those who played the first iteration of Turok 3 will instantly notice the up-rezzed assets. The remaster features an updated lighting system. Although the “skin” has been updated, the game’s logic has remained the same, so players should have the impression that they are returning to a familiar environment. Remasters of the initial two games of the first-person shooter franchise that was a cult favorite on the Nintendo 64 console have already been made available by Nightdive Studios. Now it’s time for Acclaim’s Turok 3, which was originally released on Nintendo’s platform back in September in the year 2000.

What are your thoughts about the next Turok 3? What would you like to see?

A lot of the textures in Turok 3 were 32 x 64 images, so they were small and blurry; of course, a lot of them were used on wide and large surfaces, so they would appear extremely blurry. So the artists did a lot of work on up-rezzing those assets, explained Samuel Villarreal, Lead Kex Engine developer at Nightdive.

In addition to this, the actors playing the characters, as seen in the trailer, have been given new facial expressions that give them a livelier appearance. Additionally, you have the ability to switch between the beta and alpha versions of the player’s heads-up display (HUD). In the alpha version, the player’s heads-up display (HUD) featured an outline of the character that served as the game’s health meter. You have the option, while playing the remaster, to utilize either this alpha HUD or the original HUD. Neat!
