Rise of the Triad’s ‘ludicrous’ 4K remaster will be out in 2023

Following a low-key initial announcement in 2020, a remaster of classic ’90s FPS Rise of the Triad has finally been detailed. It’s a collaboration between original developer Apogee Entertainment, remaster specialists Nightdive, and retro shooter fanatics New Blood Interactive, and it’ll be out early next year.

Rise of the Triad: Ludicrous Edition will include all the original episodes and expansion packs, including the fan-made Return of the Triad, as well as a new episode. It’ll be in modern resolutions with increased and adjustable FOV, an updated HUD and UI, and the original sprites and textures. A level editor and Steam Workshop support will be included, as will new netcode for the multiplayer, restored content including assets from the period during development when it was a sequel to Wolfenstein 3D, and the option to choose between the original music or Andrew Hulshult’s soundtrack for the 2013 reboot, which was one of the only good things about it.
