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.

I’m optimizing like crazy as I mod so hopefully it will run smoothly for all. I have a beast PC so it’s hard not to push the Kexengine as hard as I can. So far everything runs as smooth as butter even when lots of enemies get blown to crap at the same time.
