Rise of the Triad Revival Announced

Apogee Software kicks off QuakeCon by announcing a Rise of the Triad "rebirth," marking an unexpected first-person shooter revival from an unexpectedly still-extant publisher. Word is the game is in development at Danish developer Interceptor Entertainment using the Unreal Engine 3 and Steamworks, and it will feature a single-player campaign as well as full multiplayer support. They offer a reveal trailer (NSFW), announce the launch of the game's website (it's currently producing "403 Forbidden" errors, but that should be sorted soon), and that they will be showing the game off at QuakeCon. Here's word:

Today at QuakeCon, Apogee Software and Interceptor Entertainment announced the rebirth of the cult-classic first-person shooter, “Rise of the Triad” - vowing to make it bigger, better and more ludicrous than ever before. Powered by the industry-leading Unreal Engine 3 from Epic Games, “Rise of the Triad” includes a full single-player campaign, a fully featured multiplayer experience and so much more.

The first trailer for the upcoming title can be seen at Machinima.

“We were seeking a strong, independent, hard-working development partner to herald the eagerly-anticipated return of ‘Rise of the Triad’,” said Terry Nagy, co-founder and Chief Creative Officer of Apogee. “We have indeed found that partner in Interceptor Entertainment.”

"Apogee has given us a great opportunity with Rise of the Triad," said Interceptor CEO Frederik Schreiber. "We are all about fast-paced action and this was simply a perfect match for us as fans of old school shooters."

Set for release on PC via Steam late this year, “Rise of the Triad” is packed with features that are sure to melt your face off:

  • Step into the shoes of the H.U.N.T. (High-Risk United Nations Taskforce) with five unique characters, each with different play styles.
  • Blast through over 20 of levels of explosive single-player action.
  • Unique multiplayer maps bring back all the fun and excitement of classic ROTT.
  • The full arsenal of over-the top weapons is back, including the Flamewall, Firebomb, Split Missile, Drunk Missile and, of course, the Excalibat!
  • The maniacal modes return, too, with God mode, Elasto mode, Mercury mode, Shrooms mode and everyone's favorite, Dog mode!
  • Build your own levels, mods and share them with Valve's Steamworks.
  • Offline single-player and multiplayer allows for instant action.
  • Find tons of secrets, collectables, special events and hidden areas to explore.
  • Get more than 100 achievements to add to your score, which is tracked on our worldwide leaderboard and stat-tracking system.
  • ROTT is bloodier and more ludicrous than ever, with full character and enemy dismemberment.
  • The iconic original soundtrack has been completely re-forged in the fires of heavy metal!
  • Nostalgia abounds with the option to play with all the original sounds and music.
  • Built on fully-licensed Unreal Engine 3 technology, ROTT will run on low-end PCs and push high-end PCs to their limits!

Wow. It must be the age of everyone dusting off their moldy IPs to see what money they can squeeze out of them.
Also known as the "Era of Sequels and Prequels."

47. Did you guys like ROTT? Aug 3, 2012, 09:10 Ant
 
I didn't like it much. I preferred DOOM, Heretic, Hexen, Duke Nukem 3D, etc. back during those days! Couple of my college buddies loved ROTT more than those games.

And don't worry about Shadow Warrior. You can bet your ass you're going to see that sucker again. That's their ace in the hole. They're going to make sure they have the right developer for that one. Maybe when Romero decides to get back in to the PC FPS market.

All somebody has to do is convince Romero that PC gaming is the next big thing again. He's the ADHD-addled child of the gaming community, always chasing after the latest shiny object.

No Hand of God, so it's a no buy. Veryangry

However, the greatest part of RotT was the over the top weapons like the flame wall, drunk missile, and of course, excalibat. If they can capture that crazy over the top feeling, then it will probably be a success.

I just recently played the GoG version and found myself thinking it was high time for a remake. True, the trailer doesn't instill a whole lot of confidence, but it's early yet.

I took a look at it at Quakecon, but didn't play it. It looks very vanilla, but I did get a kick out of the fact that the map they were using was one of the old ones from the original ROTT.

If I go back tomorrow, I'll give it a shot and let you all know how it is.

I thought Apogee was defunct subdivision of 3D Realms? eh either way I will definitely welcome the remake -- the MP was a blast to play on TEN.net

I remember discovering holding "attack" with the Excalibat would cause it to charge up and launch a bunch of green baseballs. It was the greatest thing in the world!

I enjoyed the original. However, this trailer looks terrible - even considering that it's a budget title.

Agreed 100%. It looks really bad.
