Rise of the Triad: Ludicrous Edition, a remaster of the 1995 shooter, is launching early next year.
First announced back in 2020, the remaster is being developed by port specialist Nightdive Studios, which has previously worked on the acclaimed remasters of Quake, Turok, DOOM 64, and more. Rise of the Triad: Ludicrous Edition is utilising Nightdive's proprietary KEX engine, with support for 4K / 60FPS, increased FOV, cloud saves, achievements, and more.
“From its fateful beginnings as a sequel in the Wolfenstein 3D franchise, Rise of the Triad still retains many Wolf-ish ideas, like the art style and run-n-gun gameplay,” said Scott Miller, founder of publisher Apogee Entertainment and original project manager of Rise of the Triad. “It’s some kind of miracle to see a game Apogee made in the mid-’90s finding new life a generation later, in its best form yet. Nightdive used the Excalibat to knock this outta the park!”
Rise of the Triad: Ludicrous Edition is launching on Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Nintendo Switch, and PC in early 2023. You can check out the new trailer down below.
