    After a long... long hiatus, Rise of the Triad is returning in the form of a new game powered by Unreal Engine 3. It was originally released in 1995 and intended as an offshoot of Wolfenstein and a sequel was announced by Apogee 2009. This sequel, just seeing the light of day today at Quakecon, is being developed by Interceptor Entertainment for release later this year and will feature full Steamworks integration (achievements, Steam Workshop, etc).

    ShackNews has a few additional details:

    Rise of the Triad Remake Revealed

    [m]http://youtu.be/xhi-7lj7osI[/m]
    The old-school shooter from the early 90's known as Rise of the Triad is getting a facelift, and seems to retain many of the old mechanics.

    Looks clearly UnrealEngine3. They got the stock UT3 rocket effects even!

    It's strange they're retconning the December 21 1994 1.0 shareware release date as the ROTT date, to February 1995, calling it a 1995 game now.

    I mean, Doom's birthday is officially December 10 1993 and Quake's birthday is June 22 1996 and those are their initial shareware release dates (full versions came later), how come ROTT isn't the same for that?

    Hopefully, we'll also see a return of Raptor: Call of the Shadows. But then again, does it really need a remake or a sequel?

    And while we're talking about it, Amok (my avatar) is in SORE need of a remake. So much potential and they really blew it with bad controls among other things.

    It's made by the same team behind Duke Nukem 3D HD.
    This game uses UE3, and ironically it has been shown at QuakeCon.

    My guess,since the name difference between the shareware and full release

    Shareware:The Hunt Begins
    Full Version:Dark Wars

    (insert pic of Alberto Delrio from WWE saying "But you already knew that.)

    ROTT is my most favorite game ever made. If they screw this up I'll cry.

    I doubt it. Mountain King Studios sits on the rights of it. Cygnus/Rogue is long dissolved.

    Apogee is known for letting the creators retain their rights, they own very few unique franchises of their own.

    Actually?

    The trailer doesn't amuse me one bit. I may just be pessimistic, but yeah..

    I'm just happy someone acknowledged its existence after such a long time in the dark. :\
