The Interceptor team takes requests and Rise of the Triad 1.2 is chock-full of fan favorites and most-requested features. Especially quicksaves. How could a “PC-focused” game in 2013 come out WITHOUT the ability to Quicksave??
All the words that follow are from Dave Oshry’s mouth…
First up is the Ludicrous Development Kit, enabling the creation of custom maps and mods (remember those?!) with over 16,000 assets including the complete set of assets from Rise of the Triad, the original version. Yeah, Interceptor INVENTED the remix, but this is your chance to party like it’s 1995. Check this video for details and click this link to get started.
Next up: Quicksaves! Save and load your game anywhere and anytime and shh, we won’t tell how many tries you needed to make that jump. It’ll be our little secret. Heh heh heh.
And then, KABLAMMO, No More Loggins, Kenny! Quit trying to remember your username and password because with Rise of the Triad 1.2, you only need to login to the servers if you want to sync your offline saves, post your high scores to the leaderboards, or chat with other players via the in-game chat rooms. Logging in is no longer required for multiplayer at all! Even a few mouseclicks and keystrokes can’t stop the fun.
Mamma mia! There are also dozens of new fixes, tweaks, changes and optimizations you can read about in this awesome forum link.
Players wanting to check out all the madness of Rise of the Triad but not wanting to shell out ludicrous dinero will have a special chance to grab the award-winning remake for 50% off as part of Steam and GOG.com’s Halloween sales. This sale runs from Tuesday through Friday, so grab it in time to fill the weekend with blood, guts, and rockets to the groin. Baseball is over and your fantasy team sucks, what else ya gonna do this weekend?
