Turok 2 Ascension is yet another overhaul mod by myself for a classic game from my past recreated by the awesome dev team Nightdive Studios. Turok 2 was the first game I had ever played that I bought with my own money and so I was very critical of it at that time. I loved the game to death, but every flaw I saw in it I griped about it. So now, decades later I have taken it upon myself to try and make it even better than it already was. From crazier weapon abilities to more blood and gore to a nice HD/Upscaled Texture and Skin Pack to an increase in enemy numbers this mod aims to help Turok 2 ascend to a whole new level.

It'd be awesome if you made a Mod like this for Turok 3 & Turok Evolution when (and IF) they get ported and remastered on PC. :)

I doubt I'd do that. Honestly the only Turok I actually really liked was Turok 2. Turok 1 was redundant and rough around the edges. Turok 3 seemed like more of the same and the story got a little boring. Turok Evolution was embarrassing. Sorry. Hope you like T2A.

No it runs perfectly fine for me. All I did was change the color of the fog that was already in place and then reduce the draw distance for the maps. If anything your frame rate should increase.
