Rise of the Triad: Ludicrous Edition (ROTT), the definitive remaster of the OG FPS from Apogee Entertainment, New Blood Interactive, and Nightdive Studios, is now shredding through PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch. Got a next-gen console? No sweat, it’s also available on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S via backwards compatibility.
Splatterfest Meets Console Gaming
Prepare to gib your way through chaos with console controls for the first time. Rise of the Triad’s arrival on console systems packs in modern enhancements like sharp 4K visuals, wider FOV, cloud saves, and achievements. It’s like experiencing the ’90s FPS glory days but with today’s gaming bling.
H.U.N.T. Down the Triad Clan
The stakes? Saving Los Angeles from a mysterious threat off the coast of California. Players step into the boots of a High-Risk United Nations Task-Force agent, codenamed H.U.N.T., as they navigate maze-like levels to eliminate the sinister Triad clan. Each operative comes with unique attributes, dialing up the replay value.
Unleash Hellish Firepower
When it comes to artillery, ROTT ain’t playing. Equip dual-wield pistols for double the damage, or go full pyro with drunk missiles and flame walls. Rocket jumping adds an extra layer of verticality to the gameplay, a feature that was groundbreaking when Rise of the Triad first blasted onto the scene.
Packed with New and Nostalgic Content
Long-time fans have reasons to be hyped, too. This Ludicrous Edition throws in five all-new campaigns, additional expansion packs, and even unseen narrative beta build episodes from the game’s original development crew.
Multiplayer Mayhem on the Horizon
Team up or go lone wolf in 11-player online multiplayer matches. Cross-play functionality ensures a larger pool of rivals and allies. Dive into classic COMM-BAT deathmatch, try out the asymmetric 10 vs. 1 Hunter mode, or relive the classic days with “Capture the Triad”, which is essentially gaming’s granddad of online capture the flag modes.
Scott Miller Talks Revival and Generational Gameplay
Scott Miller, Apogee Entertainment founder and the man behind the original ROTT project, shared his excitement for the console release: “ROTT’s fast-paced formula was groundbreaking back in the day and still offers hours of entertainment. This console drop lets a new generation join the H.U.N.T., and I bet we’ll see some epic parent-child matchups.”

Rise of the Triad: Ludicrous Edition is up for grabs on Steam and GOG for $19.99 USD. For console peeps, it’s out on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One, plus next-gen systems via backward compatibility.
