ShackNews reports Interceptor Entertainment is working on a remake of Rise of the Triad, an old-school first person shooter first released in February 1995. Originally developed by Apogee as an expansion pack for Wolfenstein 3D , the project was transformed into a standalone game after id Software revoked Apogee's right to market the game as a Wolfenstein sequel.
The game will have you taking on a role in the High-Risk United Nations Taskforce (HUNT) with five unique characters and a 20-stage single-player campaign. It will also feature a multiplayer mode, complete with signature weapons from the original ROTT like Flamewall, Firebomb, Split Missile, Drunk Missile, and Excalibat. It also includes the classic modes like God, Elasto, Mercury, Shrooms, and Dog modes. The game promises Steamworks functionality to build and share levels and mods, secrets and collectibles, and all of the old sounds and music intact.
Even though the game is based on Epic Games' Unreal Engine 3, the game is shown off at id Software's QuakeCon. The new Rise of the Triad game will arrive later this year on Steam.
