Although many consumers reported seeing Turok popping up on store shelves ahead of schedule last week, Touchstone and Propaganda Games’ dino-filled sci-fi FPS has officially hit North American retail today with a sticker price of $59.99 for both PS3 and Xbox 360. After three years in development, Turok marks the long-awaited relaunch of the Classic Media-owned property. Don’t forget to download the playable demo available now from the Xbox Live Marketplace and PlayStation Store if you’d like to take a little try-before-you-buy trial run. And if you need even more Turok to get you through the week, be sure to start checking stores tomorrow for the Turok: Son of Stone DVD.

“Turok provides a pulse-pounding experience similar to a blockbuster action film while immersing players in a hostile world filled with visceral dinosaurs,” said Craig Relyea, senior vice president of global marketing, Touchstone. “There is a strong legacy behind this franchise, but this is whole new Turok that will appeal to an even wider audience.”

“Turok was a huge initial project for a veteran group of game developers from diverse backgrounds, which included expertise from some of the industry’s landmark games,” said Josh Holmes, vice president and general manager, Propaganda Games. “We’re eager to witness the excitement of video game players as the game is distributed worldwide.”
