Rise of the Triad Remastered Announced

A tweet from 3D Realms announces Rise of the Triad Remastered, a first-person shooter remake coming next year to PC and consoles. The original ROTT was built on an enhanced version of the Wolfenstein 3D engine and released by Apogee in 1995. Designed by Tom Hall, this offered incredibly imaginative gameplay and some forward-thinking features including class-based characters, jump-pads, NPCs that feigned death, power-ups, ludicrous gibs, destructible objects, achievement rewards, and more. A Remastered Reveal Trailer (NSFW) shows this is in the works at Slipgate Ironworks as a brand-new port of the source code, which was publicly released back in 2002. Here's word from Frederik Schreiber on the enhancements in the new version:
We're brining back Rise of the Triad for Switch, Xbox, PlayStation, and PC with a brand-new source port. Widescreen support, mouselook, revamped multiplayer. It's a really cool collaboration between us here and 3D Realms, Destructive Creations, and Apogee Software. It's going to come next year.

Jonjonz Promo Red Flag Number 2: Promo video that only shows too small to really see game play on a tiny screen from a distance, a sure sign that at full resolution on a regular sized screen it is nothing to write home about.

(FYI Jonjonz Promo Red Flag Number #1: Promo video that only shows CGI rather game play is a sure sign the actual game play is flawed, boring or both.)

After the 2013 remake... why?

Are there really people out there that want to go so retro as to have "minecraft graphics" work seamlessly on a modern machine / operating system / wide-screen monitor?
Is this all 3DRealms can do? rehash old shit on tweaked old tech engines? (Even new IP like Graven)

I'll settle for the 2013 remake (which I have from a GOG sale)... thanks.

Obviously yes, there are enough people that like these sort of things to allow them to keep working on them. More power to them, just because it's a niche doesn't mean it shouldn't exist.

But I'm biased, I thought Strafe was easily among the best FPS games released in the past decade...

Really? I bought it at some point but haven't had time to play it, yet. Will have to check it out soon.
Now we donce.

Not a huge fan of ROTT although it was a neat concept.
I would love to see a modern re-imaging of the Blake Stone games.
They should get the GZDoom treatment.

I'm not sure but I think this may be the first time that an original PC game is getting a facelift after the remake has been released.

Classic tactic featured in most playbooks for the creatively bankrupt: the re-re-hash!

If they do that then I need a remake of Kingpin. LOVED that game.

That's already happening.

The best part of that announce video was that it was less than 60 seconds.

I support this - along with RTX support like Quake2 RTX.

Recently replayed this - needed the standard work-arounds that Quake2/3 etc engined games need to work properly but it was fine. No limbs were left attached or recognizable.

I feel like I'm the only person that completed both games (there is no third!) by only killing the level-trigger and boss enemies and just shooting the guns off every other one.

I'd also settle for a new game or even a ripoff series by a competent developer.
