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 Turoks former mentor. However, as their ship approaches the planet it is shot down, scattering all of its passengers including Turok across the planets wilderness, making the mission near possible to complete.
Turok is stranded on the planet and must locate other crash survivors while confronting Kanes 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.
