UK Release Date:

Developer: Interceptor Entertainment
Age Rating: ESRB |

Rise of the Triad marks the return of Quake's deathmatch-style gameplay. Bunnyhop, run, and shoot your way through an unabashed corridor shooter.

As remake of the 1994 original, you'll be playing as a member of the High-risk United Nations Task-force (H.U.N.T.) sent to San Nicolas Island. A group of cultists are doing their best to destroy Los Angeles and it's your job to stop them.

Some of the tools that you'll have at your disposal include the Flamewall, Firebomb, Split Missile, Drunk Missile, and the Excalibat. You'll also occasionally be turned into god, a dog, and a stoner with the various ludicrous power ups in the game.

Everything that you loved and hated about the 1994 original—ludicrous gibs, explosives, boss fights, and first-person platforming.
