Turok 2: Seeds of Evil-- a game originally released over twenty years ago--is receiving online multiplayer on the Nintendo Switch. Turok 2 is a classic Nintendo 64 title that made a return to the Nintendo Switch, and now is receiving new features.
Turok 2 was released on the Nintendo Switch in late 2019 without multiplayer features, which was a disappointment to some. However, developer Nightdive Studios promised that it would continue to support the game post-launch, and it has done just that.
Turok 2: Seeds of Evil will receive a patch tomorrow, February 25, 2021. The update will come with a bevy of exciting additions including German audio localization, support for gyro for some third-party controllers (including the Hori Split Pad controllers), and additional stability. Of course, the highlight of the update is the online multiplayer. It is quite impressive to add online multiplayer to a game that Nintendo fans have enjoyed since 1998.
There is still no news of local or split-screen multiplayer for the game. So for now, the only way Nintendo Switch players can enjoy the multiplayer experience is via online play. However, that is certainly something to celebrate for fans of the game. Xbox One players have been able to enjoy online play on Turok 2 for quite some time now, so parity across the two versions is appreciated.
Enjoying retro gaming is special. Re-releasing video games to play them again as they were once enjoyed is a great way to preserve the game itself, but also the joy from that time as well. But it is also special to add new experiences to the old games. A game like Turok 2 on the Nintendo 64 obviously did not support online play, but in the year 2021 on current consoles it can, and that is something that gamers should celebrate.
About a week ago, the release dates for Night Dive Studios' Xbox One remasters of Turok: Dinosaur Hunter and its sequel Seeds of Evil were revealed by way of listing on the official Microsoft Store. Now, the time fans have been waiting for has finally arrived, with both of the updated versions of the classic Nintendo 64-era first-person shooter titles now available for purchase on Xbox One consoles.
Turok: Dinosaur Hunter and Turok 2: Seeds of Evil on Xbox One cost $20 apiece, and are set to offer fans the experience of enhanced visuals, as well as frame rates that are much smoother than those of the originals. As of now, the remastered titles are only available separately, but perhaps Night Dive Studios and Microsoft will decide to bundle them both together with some kind of discounted price in the future.
All things considered, it will be interesting to see if the demand for Turok 1 and 2 on Xbox One will go on to generate big sales for the titles on the current generation system. There's no doubt that nostalgia will drive many to purchase the remasters, especially with the games both being priced at $20 a pop. Nevertheless, there may be many who decide to save their spending money for one of this year's never-before-released titles, as there are a slew of highly anticipated new games coming in 2018.
