Rise of the Triad: Ludicrous Edition physical

Limited Run Games is planning a physical release for Rise of the Triad: Ludicrous Edition, the company just announced. More information will be provided in the future.

Rise of the Triad: Ludicrous Edition isn’t on Switch in any form yet, but that’s about to change. It’ll debut digitally on July 31, 2023.

Here’s an official overview:

Rise of the Triad: Ludicrous Edition is more than a faithful recreation of the highly influential, genre-defining shooter. Thanks to Nightdive Studios’ proprietary KEX engine, it is the original shooter in its true form, built with the original source code. Experience a perfect mix of past and present with 60+ frames-per-second gameplay, classic pixelated artwork upscaled to 4K resolution, increased field-of-view, cloud saves, achievements, and more.

Join the H.U.N.T., an elite squad of special forces and investigate mysterious activity off the California coast and unravel the mystery of the Triad cult. Select from five operatives, each with their own hit points, speed and accuracy statistics, and blast a path back to Los Angeles. Play through five separate campaigns including new episodes, expansion packs and never-before-seen Rise of the Triad content from previously-lost beta builds.

Splatter blood and gibs (LUDICROUS GIBS!) across the island with over-the-top weaponry like dual-wield pistols (the first dual-wield in video game history), heat-seeker missiles, and earth-shaking Firebombs. Take the H.U.N.T. online without the hassle of dial-up internet with multiplayer COMM-BAT supporting up to 11 players. Go one-versus-ten in Hunter mode, and encounter the first ever capture-the-flag mode in FPS history in “Capture the Triad” mode. Experience the FPS that revolutionized 1994 by adding verticality.

Recreate any Rise of the Triad experience with multiple iterations of the classic original soundscape, or rock out to the heavy metal 2013 reboot soundtrack. Inject the perfect dose of fast-paced FPS madness into the mix with an all-new level editor, and get the upper hand on enemies with the inclusion of ROTT’s original cheat codes (if you can remember them!).
