Rise of the Triad release date is July 31

Rise of the Triad will release on July 31 for $15. The gorey 1994 shooter remake from Interceptor Entertainment will hit Steam, Good Old Games, and Green Man Gaming with a nostalgia-laden Apogee Throwback Pack in store for pre-orderers.

The fast-paced FPS goes for fast, twitchy action, with plenty of bizarre weaponry like the Excalibat and Drunk Missile retained from the original. But now the gibs are coming at you polygonally!


(What exactly are those eyeballs sticking to and sliding down at 0:34? Is the protagonist protected by a clear plastic sheet, like at a Gallagher show?)

If you'd prefer the original flavor, the Apogee Throwback Pack includes the original Rise of the Triad: Dark War, expansion pack Extreme Rise of the Triad, Blake Stone: Aliens of Gold, and Blake Stone: Planet Strike. It's available separately for $10.

I got a BA in journalism from Central Michigan University - though the best education I received there was from CM Life, its student-run newspaper. Long before that, I started pursuing my degree in video games by bugging my older brother to let me play Zelda on the Super Nintendo. I've previously been a news intern for GameSpot, a news writer for CVG, and now I'm a staff writer here at GamesRadar.
