Turok, a Sci-Fi First Person Shooter (FPS) game for PC, is being released by Avanquest Software Publishing in June 2008. The player takes on the role of Joseph Turok, a former black ops commando, now part of an elite Special Forces squad known as Whiskey Company.

The game is set in the future on a dark, mysterious planet inhabited by Roland Kane and his army. Whiskey Company has been tasked with‘taking down’ Kane, an escaped war criminal and Turok’s former mentor. However, as their ship approaches the planet it is shot down, scattering all of its passengers including Turok across the planet’s wilderness, making the mission near possible to complete.

Turok is stranded on the planet and must locate other crash survivors while confronting Kane’s army of Mendel-Gruman soldiers, dinosaurs, huge insects and other ravenous creatures. Only by using his elite military training will Turok be able to survive the wild environment he finds himself in and complete his mission.
