Rise of the Triad remake confirmed at QuakeCon

You may not remember much about Rise of the Triad from way back in 1994, but it's one of those classic titles that managed to stick around in the long memories of lifelong hardcore PC gamers. Largely overshadowed in its own time by classics like Doom and Wolfenstein 3D, the cult classic will be given a second chance at life as it's being remade and modernized according to a panel at QuakeCon today.

The original developer, Apogee Software, will be working with Interceptor Entertainment to bring the title up to date. Interceptor was the developer behind the long-delayed Duke Nukem 3D: Reloaded.

Many of the original features that made Rise of the Triad so unique in its own day will be returning. You'll be able to choose from five different characters, along with a load of unique weaponry like the "Flamewall," "Drunk Missile," and the "Excalibat" among many others. And in true classic PC gaming form there will also be activateable cheats like God mode, dog mode, and elasto mode.

    so they can remake this, but Square still refuse to remake FF7. But still, this should be a welcome break from the linear FPS that we're lumped with today

    Rise of the Triad is one of my all-time favourite PC games and the gameplay looks like it has remained ‘old school’. This was back when FPS levels were like mini open worlds instead of the boring liner ones of today. I wonder if 'Dog mode' is going to be in it? All we need now is a remake of Blake Stone and I for one will be happy!

    Yep it was a good game. I thought it was forgotten...
