Seems we have even more remasters on the way from Nightdive Studios, as they've now announced both Turok 3: Shadow of Oblivion Remastered and Star Wars: Dark Forces Remaster.
For Turok 3: Shadow of Oblivion Remastered, this is the first game that will be remastered using the very latest version of the proprietary KEX engine, which Nightdive say "utilizes an improved renderer to achieve a higher tier of visual fidelity across 3D models, textures, and graphical effects".
Here's the trailer for Turok 3: Shadow of Oblivion Remastered
- A remastered version of the 2000 classic, available for the first time since its Nintendo 64 release
- Up to 4K 120FPS performance
- Advanced rendering features, including anti-aliasing, bloom, ambient occlusion, dynamic shadows, and motion blur
- Remastered environment art, character models, and updated weapon models
- Optional Motion/Gyro controls for Nintendo Switch console and Gamepad rumble
- Brand new Achievements
Next up is Star Wars: Dark Forces Remaster which we have less details on. Nightdive are working in collaboration with Lucasfilm Games and it will be just like the other remasters with the proprietary KEX engine. Star Wars: Dark Forces Remaster supports up to 4K at 120FPS and features advanced 3D rendering, modern gamepad support, trophies and achievements, and more! Trailer below:
No release date for either was mentioned.
Of course we won't know what the Linux and Steam Deck compatibility is going to be like until later. However, I will aim to keep you posted. However, KEX engine remasters generally work just fine in Proton just like the recent Quake II Remastered.
