Rise of the Triad: Ludicrous Edition announced for Switch (physical/digital), due out early 2023
God Mode activated
Fans of classic 90’s-era first-person shooters rejoice! The definitive release of the cult classic, Rise of the Triad, by the original developer and publisher Apogee Entertainment, along with New Blood Interactive and remaster kings Nightdive Studios, is back and better than ever with Rise of the Triad: Ludicrous Edition. This 60 fps remaster launches on Switch in early 2023.
Rise of the Triad: Ludicrous Edition takes players back to the era when shooters were elegant in their simplicity and filled with balls-to-the-wall ferocious action. Brought into the modern era courtesy of Nightdive’s famous KEX Engine, the Ludicrous Edition features an increased field-of-vision, 60 frames-per-second of bullets, explosions, an enchanted baseball bat, cloud saves, achievements, multiplayer support, and much more!
In Rise of the Triad: Ludicrous Edition, players gear up with a five-person task force known as the H.U.N.T. (High-Risk United Nations Taskforce) to infiltrate a mysterious (and exceedingly dangerous) island full of maniacal cultists. With updated HUD and UI elements, players can enjoy the classic campaign plus restored cut content and a new, original story episode in the Rise of the Triad universe. Once they’ve blasted their way through the single-player campaign, players can grab a few pals and engage in some old-school multiplayer COMMbatt deathmatch with multiple modes!
Rise of the Triad: Ludicrous Edition will be priced at $20 for the digital version. Nightdive Studios will also be partnering up with Limited Run Games for the physical versions of Rise of the Triad: Ludicrous Edition. Both a Standard and Collector’s Edition are in the works.
