Rise of the Triad Gets Ludicrous on July 31st, Apogee Throwback Pack Included Free with Pre-Purchase


Apogee and Interceptor Entertainment’s balls-to-the-wall Unreal Engine 3 remake of 90s FPS Rise of the Triad is coming your digital download way on July 31st. Pre-orders are available now from Apogee, Steam, GOG.com, and Green Man Gaming, with the added bonus of a digital copy of the newly released Apogee Throwback Pack, which includes the original Rise of the Triad: Dark War and its Extreme Rise of the Triad expansion pack, plus Blake Stone: Aliens of Gold and Blake Stone: Planet Strike.


That’s a whole lotta retro first-person shooter goodness for only $9.99, but by pre-ordering the new Rise of the Triad, which sells for $14.99 by itself, the four Apogee Throwback classics will be yours for free, available for immediate download at the time of pre-purchase. I’d say it’s time to get ludicrous, y’all.
