Turok 2: Seeds of Evil (Now in bundle with Turok1)

i think that night dive is one of my favorite companies right now, they're a godsend! so many games that had the misfortune of having crap ports or annoying features are now fixed up, i absolutely love them!

 

can't wait for the system shock remaster :D

I wish Shadows of the Empire could get a remaster and mod support, but there's probably a lot of legal issues surrounding the game. The game had both a N64 and PC version, and GoG re-released the PC version not long ago.

That'd be up to Disney.

By the way, it's now officially announced that Turok 2 now has Steam/GOG crossplay. You should already have the build capable of doing this as well. If you're on Steam, GOG lobbies can be created/entered simply by going to the specifically marked GOG Galaxy options in the multiplayer menu. If you're on GOG, download GOG Galaxy and the multiplayer lobbies will become available as long as you're logged in.

For some reason we just can't stop updating Turok2. New beta patch is out on Steam, providing DirectX support (got to the betas tab in the game properties): http://steamcommunity.com/app/405830/discussions/0/1319962599254521430/
There's some unmentioned changes under the hood, but they are mostly boring things like minor client synchronization fixes for things nobody noticed and stuff like that.

Oh look, more updates! 1.5.4 is now public on Steam and GOG. Changelog.
The main new feature is DirectX support, which should run better on AMD cards and actually gives support to a slightly older set of graphics cards as long as your GPU supports DirectX10. Specifically, it's DirectX11 but with minimum support for the DX10 feature set, as we don't actually need tessellation for anything.
There's also a bunch of multiplayer and and singleplayer updates (see the change log), spread across two different version numbers.

What's with the two mystery achievements added to Turok so late?

The gist is bad timing. There's a branch on Steam in testing waiting for specific things, but Steam doesn't allow us to mark achievements for specific builds so those two can't be achieved until that build is public, so they currently sit there in wait.

 

Unless you mean why they were created. Well the proper answer is behind NDA currently, but you could probably infer part of the reason from that.

Well one is called "Speedrunner" (pretty obvious what it's going to be) and the other "Not Quite Mortal" (probably never dying once).

 

(FYI the names are visible when you view global achievement stats. Steam doesn't properly hide them)
