Rise of the Triad--the most ludicrous FPS gore-fest ever--arrives today on GOG.com

DRM-free Digital Distributor releases the exciting modern incarnation of one of the most ridiculous, over-the-top shooters in the history of PC gaming.

(31 July 2013) -- Want to feel a real emotional connection with a dog? Deliver eye-popping (literally) blows via the Excalibat? Trip on shrooms while avoiding enemy fire? Gamers everywhere are welcome to immerse themselves in the wonderful world of Rise of the Triad--a brand new take on one of the most ludicrous shooters in the history of PC gaming--available now, in all its gory glory, for only $14.99 at GOG.com.

The original Rise of the Triad: Dark War, developed by Apogee in 1994, was full of absurd humor and over-the-top violence from back-in-the-day. Rise of the Triad is a game well aware of its roots: as one of the five members of the elite Special Forces Task Force Team you are trapped on an island overtaken by the crazed cultists of the Triad plotting on world domination, and the only way out leads over the cold, severely dismembered bodies of countless Nazis.

Rise of the Triad multiplayer is not locked, meaning players from all distribution platforms can enjoy mutual multiplayer mutilation. The game is completely moddable with an easy-to-use editor, which will be made available shortly after release, and simple access to user-generated content. More information on the delicate process of bringing oldschool fun and modern delivery together is available here, as Interceptor Entertainment's CEO, Frederik Schreiber, answers GOG.com users' questions.
