Today at QuakeCon, Apogee Software and Interceptor Entertainment announced the rebirth of the first-person shooter, “Rise of the Triad” – vowing to make it bigger and better than ever before. Powered by the Unreal Engine 3, Rise of the Triad includes a full single-player campaign, a fully featured multiplayer experience and so much more.

Apogee Software and Interceptor both commented on the announcement:

“We were seeking a strong, independent, hard-working development partner to herald the eagerly-anticipated return of ‘Rise of the Triad’,” said Terry Nagy, co-founder and Chief Creative Officer of Apogee. “We have indeed found that partner in Interceptor Entertainment.”

“Apogee has given us a great opportunity with Rise of the Triad,” said Interceptor CEO Frederik Schreiber.  “We are all about fast-paced action and this was simply a perfect match for us as fans of old school shooters.”

The original Rise of the Triad was released as a PC-CDROM back in 1995, but it’s great to see this game get the love it deserves. Stay tuned for more info as it is released.
