Turok Demo Roars Onto Marketplace

Published On January 15, 2008 | By David Wriglesworth | News

A Turok Single-Player demo has gone live on the XBOX Live Marketplace and is available everywhere (with the exception of Japan and Korea). The demo which weighs in at 1.17GB puts players into the role of Joseph Turok, a former black ops commando who is part of Whiskey Company, an elite special forces squad, which are on a mission to take down Turok’s former mentor, Roland Kane.

As well as the demo, a list of the dinosaurs available to fight during the game has been revealed. The dinosaurs include some well-known ones such as the Tyrannosaurus Rex to some not-so-well-known dinosaurs such as the Dromaeosaurus. Here’s the full list:

* Brachiosaurus;
* Coelophysis;
* Compsognathus;
* Dilophosaurus;
* Dromaeosaurus — Small, big-eyed raptors. Possibly juvenile Utahraptors;
* Gallimimus;
* Lurker — A fictional dinosaur created for the game. It is a cross between a dinosaur and a jungle cat in appearance;
* Parasaurolophus;
* Tyrannosaurus Rex;
* Juvenile Tyrannosaurus Rex;
* Utahraptor — Apparently there are different types of this dinosaur or male, female and juvenile versions;
* Giant scorpions;
* Miscellaneous giant insects;
* Miscellaneous sea serpent boss;
* Pteranodon;
* Other herbivores — Some dinosaurs like these are harmless;
* Giant carnivorous plants.
