Turok is back with some pics

Turok is back with some pics

The only prehistorical-futuristic FPS is back on the nextgen consoles. The 3D engine chosen is Unreal Engine 3, so much the better!

Concretely one week ago it asked to me if they were going to release a new turok xDDD

Why the hell did they change the main character.... U used to be some cool idian/aztec looking guy now your just marine #999999 it's a bit tiresome :( but anyway the graphics look pretty sweet so i'll wait with the judgement....

The main character is a distant relative of the original Turok... IN THE FUTURE!

A premise they had to pay the Straight-To-Video-Sequel Corporation for the rights to!

Why does this game look so much like Gears of War? I can't be the only one who can see this.
Commented on 2006-08-10 21:30:13
The screens are old though?

Heh, i remember a scan from some magazine few months ago... the writer thought the forest looked comparable to Crysis. Im not so sure about that myself =P.

Same engine as gow, UE3. Using a hard floodlight for world lighting gives nice bumpmaps, contrasts and deep shadows. Other than that I dont see much GOW resemblance. GOW cleans the floor with its art design, others can only wish they had it.

The last "next-gen" turok wasnt that hot so I'm not expecting much. This would make a great co-op game (as the first pic suggests), with serious sam style firefights, but if it doesnt offer that its likely just another mediocre shooter.

huh are the pic really new? think not...
Commented on 2006-08-10 22:20:15
aaaaaaah someone make your own engine please!
it looks good, but i reckon the more studios start designing their own engines, the better it will be for the games

i really think someone can do better than ue3, although it is a nice engine, it just makes a lot of games look too similar
Commented on 2006-08-10 22:38:10
lol .... there is a new engine... its the crysis engine from crytek... and of course theres the doom3 engine... those are the only 2 other big ones but by far the UE3 engine is the nicest current engine... crysis looks to take the cake but its not really .... out their yet.....

The engine doesnt make them look similar... the texturing and scenery make it look similar ...

What i cant wait for is the UE4 engine :) but they still havent announced when the damn engine will be released. only the odd story on google.

i can't wait to frag 2 huge dinosaurs like in pic 5..that would rock with the environment showing some damage and running from some live steriod infected maniacal dinosaurs which finds you as food.

sweeeet

Doesnt the game seem more team incorporated? look at pic 6..you aren't alone..kinda like a call of duty, halo feel, except with dinosaurs and in the jungle

Its over a year old... but... http://news.teamxbox.com/xbox/9053/Unreal-Engine-4...

i love the last line of text... "If Gears of War and Unreal Tournament 2007 already look better than anything else we have seen, can you imagine how an Unreal Engine 4 powered game will look like? "

CAUSE ITS TRUE, after gow and ut2007 images how much better and more effienct can ue4 get?

Like the movie FF7 advent children and Final fantasy the spirits within...

It's not just the graphics too..it's the all round physics aspects too..total realism to the limit and beyond

looks VERY good, though I havent played Turok before so I dont care about the nationality.

Well yes... this time youre not alone, you can even trick the dinosaurs to kill the baddies for you =).

I dont know much about the story, but it feels like the teamplay is only for the first few levels, whereafter you become totally alone vs nature. Ofcourse Im only guessing =P.
Commented on 2006-08-10 23:32:44
i always hated turok games i doubt this wil be good... but it is running on the UT engine..so ill check it out.
Commented on 2006-08-11 00:19:25
Gotta say... I'm not the "I like Turok games" kinda guy but the environments look freaking cool in those pics! Good graphics.

Even guessing, I hate that in games. They give you the first few levels with allies and then they go the "lone soldier" route.....

Pretty useless imho to start talking about UE 4.0 when no UE 3.0 game isn't even released yet..

*Crossed fingers*
Please, let there be online co-op.

I like what I see.
Especially the screen with the T-rex. Seems very hectic. :D
Commented on 2006-08-11 05:54:22
Well, I guess the developers completely forgot the "dinosaur hunter" angle.
Commented on 2006-08-11 12:35:46
The Unreal engine makes everything look good, Rare used it in Kameo, Epic (the creators use it in Gears of War) and there was a robot XBLA game that I forgot its name but the graphics looked better than some Xbox 360 games like N3.
