Two Classic Games Are Making Their Xbox Debuts With New Remasters

The team behind the amazing Quake and Quake 2 remasters, Nightdive Studios, has announced two more upcoming remasters for us to look forward to on Xbox in the form of Star Wars: Dark Forces and Turok 3: Shadow of Oblivion!

Both of these will be making their Xbox debuts, with Dark Forces only ever releasing on PC and PlayStation in the past, while Turok 3: Shadow of Oblivion was a Nintendo 64 exclusive. Each game will include support for up to 4K at 120FPS, packed with a bunch of visual improvements along with various other modern features.

In terms of release dates, we don’t have one for Star Wars: Dark Forces yet (other than “coming soon”), but Turok 3: Shadow of Oblivion is confirmed to be hitting Xbox One, Series X and Series S on November 17th, 2023.

We’ll throw more details about each game down below.

Star Wars: Dark Forces Remaster (Coming Soon)

“Created in collaboration with Lucasfilm Games and fully remastered through our 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!”

Turok 3: Shadow Of Oblivion Remastered (November 17)

“Turok 3 Shadow of Oblivion Remastered is a faithful restoration of the classic first-person shooter originally released in 2000 for the Nintendo 64, upgraded through Nightdive Studios’ proprietary KEX Engine for play on modern gaming devices with up to a 4K resolution at 120FPS.

It joins Nightdive Studios, Universal Games, and Digital Platforms’ popular Turok and Turok 2: Seeds of Evil remasters, capping off the trilogy. Turok 3 Shadow of Oblivion Remastered features upgraded gameplay, high-resolution textures, enhanced lighting and rendering, and support for console gamepads with platform-specific features.”
