Relive the ’90s FPS Revolution with Proprietary KEX Engine

Apogee Entertainment, in collaboration with New Blood Interactive and Nightdive Studios, proudly announces the launch of “Rise of the Triad: Ludicrous Edition”, the long-awaited remastered version of the beloved cult classic FPS. This definitive release takes players back in time, allowing them to experience the genre-defining masterpiece that kickstarted the first-person shooter revolution in the ’90s. Today, PC gamers can dive into the action on Steam and GOG, while PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch users will have their chance later this year.

A Blast to the Past with New Features

Thanks to Nightdive Studios’ proprietary KEX engine, “Rise of the Triad: Ludicrous Edition” delivers an authentic and enhanced retro experience. By rebuilding the game from the original source code, players can enjoy the nostalgia of the ’90s with a slew of modern features. The remastered version includes visuals upscaled to 4K, 60+ frames per second gameplay, ultrawide resolution support, controller compatibility, increased FOV (Field of View), cloud saves, and an array of music and sound options spanning every ROTT era, from the original to the 2013 remake.

Trailblazing Innovation of “Rise of the Triad”

Scott Miller, the founder of Apogee Entertainment and original project manager of “Rise of the Triad” circa 1995, reflects on the game’s groundbreaking features. He states, “Rise of the Triad was ahead of its time. It was a trailblazer and a game of many firsts – the first dually wielded pistols, first capture the flag mode, and first shooter where you could look up and down! It’s been an honor to revitalize a game I worked on nearly 30 years ago, and it would not have been possible without our friends at New Blood and Nightdive Studios. We can’t wait to bring it to consoles later this year.”

Unravel the Cultists’ Plot as H.U.N.T.

In “Rise of the Triad,” players take on the role of elite operatives, part of the High-Risk United Nations Task-Force (H.U.N.T.), on a mission to save Los Angeles from the clutches of dangerous cultists. Armed with unique attributes, players infiltrate the cult monastery to put an end to their nefarious plans. The remastered edition introduces five full campaign modes, expansion packs, new cutscenes, and previously-lost beta build content, delving deeper into the rich lore of ROTT.

Over-the-Top Weapons and Ludicrous Action

Prepare for intense run-and-gun action as you unleash a plethora of outrageous weapons and witness the splattering of Ludicrous GIBS across the island. “Rise of the Triad” introduces the gaming world’s first-ever dual-wield pistol setup, doubling the fun and destruction.

Embrace the supernatural with magical weapons like the legendary Excalibat and wield the devastating power of the Hand of God to erase foes instantly.

For those seeking adrenaline-pumping multiplayer action, “Rise of the Triad: Ludicrous Edition” offers the thrilling “COMM-BAT” mode, accommodating up to 11 players across 10 unique maps.
