Earlier this year we celebrated the 20th anniversary of Wolfenstein 3D being released. That was a day of recollection for me as I remembered playing that game when I was probably too young for it. If I was too young for Wolfenstein 3D though, then I was probably also too young for Rise of the Triad (ROTT), with its over-the-top weapons and violence. That did not stop me from playing though and experiencing the Flamewall, Drunk Missile, or God Mode, and soon we will be able to play it anew.
Apogee has announced that ROTT is being remade with Unreal Engine 3 by Interceptor Entertainment. Apogee is the original publisher of ROTT and Joe Siegler, the original level designer, currently works for Interceptor, so we can trust this will be as true to the original as possible, when it comes to gameplay.
The new ROTT will be a PC exclusive and available on Steam, which will enable achievements and Steamworks for sharing mods of the game, like we have for Skyrim. It also will support multiplayer and feature a heavy metal version of the original soundtrack.
