ROTT Remaster Releasing Early 2023

Fans of the cult classic 1995 first-person shooter Rise of the Triad, we have good news for you: a remaster of the original title, titled “Rise of the Triad: Ludicrous Edition” is coming to PC, PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch in early 2023!

Watch the reveal trailer below:

Apogee Software’s Rise of the Triad was originally envisioned as a sequel to the legendary 1992 FPS Wolfenstein 3D, before being spun off into a separate IP. While the game did not enjoy much commercial success, it quickly gained a significant cult following in the coming decade. Technology and budget constraints forced Apogee to cut a good chunk of planned content out of the game, and the game suffered from numerous bugs and glitches on newer operating systems. A remake by Interceptor Entertainment in 2013 attempted to reimagine Rise of the Triad while staying true to the feel of the original, but failed to garner much commercial attention.

A remaster of the original title was revealed by 3D Realms (the successor to Apogee Software) at Realms Deep 2020. Remastered by Nightdive Studios with help from New Blood Interactive with Apogee Entertainment serving as publisher, Rise of the Triad: Ludicrous Edition features a 4K@60FPS visual experience, increased FOV, cloud saves, restored cut content from the original plus a new story episode, and multiplayer!

We’ll let Apogee tell you the rest of the story:

In Rise of the Triad: Ludicrous Edition, players gear up with a five-person task force known as the H.U.N.T. (High-Risk United Nations Taskforce) to infiltrate a mysterious (and exceedingly dangerous) island full of maniacal cultists. With updated HUD and UI elements, players can enjoy the classic campaign *plus* restored cut content and a new, original story episode in the Rise of the Triad universe. Once they’ve blasted their way through the single-player campaign, players can grab a few pals and engage in some old-school multiplayer COMMbatt deathmatch with multiple modes!

Key Features of Rise of the Triad: Ludicrous Edition:

  • Five playable characters
  • Guns, rocket launchers… and bats
  • Level editor with Steam Workshop support
  • Multiple multiplayer modes (max. 11 players) — including the first ever capture the flag mode
  • A classic for modern hardware — 4K/60, increased FOV, updated HUD and UI, original sprites and texture, modern resolutions, achievements, cloud saves, and more
  • A thrilling story that screams 90s at the top of its lungs
  • All original ROTT episodes and expansion packs plus
  • A new episode created by New Blood, Nightdive, and Apogee software veterans
  • Ability to play with 1995 or 2013 soundtracks + jukebox
