Rise of the Triad reboot coming

The game will be headed for Valve's Steam later this year

Apogee Software and Interceptor Entertainment have announced at QuakeCon that the classic first-person shooter, Rise of the Triad, is returning to PC. The game will be powered by Epic's Unreal Engine 3 and includes a full single-player and multiplayer experience. Interceptor Entertainment will be handling the game's development.

"We were seeking a strong, independent, hard-working development partner to herald the eagerly-anticipated return of 'Rise of the Triad'," said Terry Nagy, co-founder and Chief Creative Officer of Apogee. "We have indeed found that partner in Interceptor Entertainment."

"Apogee has given us a great opportunity with Rise of the Triad," said Interceptor CEO Frederik Schreiber. "We are all about fast-paced action and this was simply a perfect match for us as fans of old school shooters."

Rise of the Triad is expected for release on Valve's Steam service later this year.

I take a wait and see approach for this one. Rise of the Triads was only special because of the gore and executions hardly material for a reboot.

Really enjoyed the original. Crappy at the end but you could say that about 95% of games. At least it's not another military shooter.

Well, this should be interesting. As long as it doesn't dip too far into being too retro for its own good (like Duke Nukem Forever), it might be a fun ride.
