Ships Ahoy - Rise of the Triad announces that Rise of the Triad has risen, as they now offer digital distribution of Interceptor Entertainment's remake of Apogee's over-the-top old school shooter. The game is also available from the Apogee Software Online Store where the Apogee Throwback Pack is included for free, though you have to pay a premium for extended download privileges. The Steam version won't unlock for several hours, which also provides a last-minute opportunity to get the Apogee Throwback Pack for free as their preorder bonus. Here's word on the game:

Rise of the Triad brings back everything we loved about the first-person shooters of the 1990s. Swarms of enemies, no hand-holding, awesome guns, badass one-liners, a pretense story, and ridiculous amounts of virtual guts flying all over the place--all checked and accounted for. Apart from a diverse and challenging single-player campaign, that pays a tribute to the game's predecessor, the new Rise of the Triad offers many multi-player game modes (the game supports its own DRM-free server network). The game's fully moddable and a robust creative tool comes with every copy, so you can extend your experience indefinitely. All that, for a fraction of the price of most modern FPS games of comparable scale!
