The return of Turok is something fans have been waiting on for quite some time, but we bet they weren't expecting this. From Universal Studios Interactive Entertainment and Pillow Pig Games comes Turok: Escape from Lost Valley, and as you can see, it's quite the departure.

It's clear that this is an original take on the Turok IP which, originally, was a series of comic books. This cutesy new direction sees you playing as the titular character as you battle all kinds of dinosaurs alongside your companion, Andar.

The game is only confirmed for a PC release via Steam, but we anticipate it'll make its way to PlayStation 4 as well. For now, though, let's just enjoy the fact we have a new Turok game -- even if it's a complete U-turn on our expectations. It's due for release on Steam on 25th July.

What do you think of Turok: Escape from Lost Valley? Do you like this adorable new style, or do you want the shooter you know and love to make a return? Hunt some dinos in the comments below.
