Remember Carmack’s statement about the revival of a classic PC game? Well, this game is no other than Rise of the Triad. Interceptor Entertainment, the team behind the cancelled Duke Nukem 3D: Reloaded, will develop a remake for Apogee Software’s FPS, that will be powered by Unreal Engine 3.
Rise of the Triad will hofeature five different playable characters, each with their own attributes and play styles. The remake will sport 20 single-player levels, and there will be a Multiplayer mode to it. Moreover, Rise of the Triad will be a Steamworks title and is currently planned exclusively for the PC.
Terry Nagy, co-founder and Chief Creative Officer of Apogee said:
“We were seeking a strong, independent, hard-working development partner to herald the eagerly-anticipated return of Rise of the Triad. We have indeed found that partner in Interceptor Entertainment.”
Interceptor CEO Frederik Schreiber added:
“Apogee has given us a great opportunity with Rise of the Triad. We are all about fast paced action and this was simply a perfect match for us as fans of old school shooters”

While he is a die-hard PC gamer, his gaming roots can be found on consoles. John loved - and still does - the 16-bit consoles, and considers SNES to be one of the best consoles. Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
