Turok 2

Out of nowhere, Turok 2: Seeds of Evil was updated on Switch this week. It comes with a pretty big feature: support for online multiplayer. There’s more to it than just that though.

While Switch users can go up against each other, it turns out that cross-play is supported. Right now Switch and PS4 are making use of that. PC and Xbox will be added to the mix later on as well. The online support was finally made possible thanks to the power of the KexEngine and PlayFab.

Turok 2: Seeds of Evil first released on Switch back in 2019. It turns out that Nightdive Studios isn’t finished with the game, as a substantial update has been announced. The classic N64 first-person shooter is set to receive online multiplayer and more.

Below are the full patch notes:

The N64 classic Turok 2 arrives on Switch today. However, a notable feature from the shooter isn’t included. Sadly, multiplayer isn’t anywhere to be found.

GameXplain reached out to Nightdive to inquire about why the feature is missing. In a statement, the company said:

The N64 game Turok 2 will release on Switch next week, an eShop listing reveals. Nightdive Studios will have the first-person shooter ready on August 9.
