Rise of the Triad gets remake in Unreal Engine 3
| by Shunal Doke |
Rise of the Triad was a very gratuitously violent game. The original was released in the early days of PC gaming, when Doom was still a big thing and first person shooters were often called doom-clones. Rise of the Triad was an over-the-top game with weird weapons such as drunk missiles. It has been two decades since this classic game was released, and it’s about to make a come back.
At QuakeCon, developer Apogee announced that Rise of the Triad will get a remake in Unreal Engine 3. The new game will also be a first person shooter and will be available for PC later this year. The studio working on the remake is Interceptor Entertainment, a studio based in Denmark that before this was working on a non-commercial remake of Duke Nukem 3D in Unreal Engine 3. Development of that game was put on hold in 2011.
Much like the original, the remake of Rise of the Triad will have five playable characters. Popular game modes from back then such as shroom mode, dog mode and “Excalibat” will be returning along with the weapons from the previous game. The remake will have a single player campaign, as well as a multiplayer mode, and will be using Steam Workshop to support the modding community for the game.
