And the leaks keep on coming. In May 2022, the 2001 build of Duke Nukem Forever got leaked online. Then, earlier this month, we got a leaked version of PREY 1995. Afterward, the source code for the arcade version of Mortal Kombat 2 found its way to the Internet. And this week, the source codes for the classic PC games, Dungeon Siege and Blood 1996, have been leaked online.
Dungeon Siege is an action RPG that came out in 2002. The game has both single-player and multiplayer modes, and was a big hit back in the 00s.
On the other hand, Blood is a first-person shooter using the Build Engine. In 2019, Nightdive released a remastered version of it, Blood Fresh Supply. However, and similarly to all of Nightdive’s remasters, it does not bring any major graphical improvements to the game.
In theory, now that the source codes are out in the wild, we might get native Ray Tracing versions of these two games. We’ve already gotten Doom Ray Traced, so we’d really love to see a similar project for Blood. Modders may also be able to replace the game’s sprites with HD versions or replace them with voxels.

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. John has also written a higher degree thesis on the “The Evolution of PC graphics cards.”
