Turok roaring to PC in spring 2008

turokFor you PC fans that feared they weren’t going to be able to don their dinosaur stomping boots–you can rest easy now. Turok, the upcoming re-boot of the dinosaur sci-fi/FPS franchise, will be heading to PC in spring 2008.

This will fit snuggly with the February 5, 2008 release date for the PS3 and Xbox 360 version of the game too.

Josh Holmes, vice president and general manager for Propaganda Games, said:

"First person shooters have a rich history on the Windows PC platform and are known for having enthusiastic, dedicated fans. Turok will be an unforgettable experience ideal for the Windows PC platform when it becomes available in 2008."

Propaganda Games handles the Turok development on consoles while PC-porting expert Aspyr Studios will do it for the PC. In addition to the game’s single-player campaign (detailed below), Turok will feature various multiplayer modes for up to 16 players.

"Turok is an epic, story-driven first-person shooter set on a dark, mysterious planet in the future. Players take on the role of Joseph Turok, a former black ops commando, now part of an elite special forces squad, known as Whiskey Company, which is on a mission to take down a war criminal –

"Turok’s former mentor, Roland Kane. Set on a planet inhabited by Kane and his Mendel-Gruman Corporation soldiers, Turok must use his elite military training to elude Kane’s well-trained army and the ravenous, unpredictable dinosaurs, huge insects and other massive creatures that populate the environment."

Heck, sporting the Unreal Engine 3 and the ability to slaughter dinosaurs sounds like Turok will be a blast to me!
