Bombshell is published by 3D Realms, the first new IP in over ten years. This is not a Duke Nukem game – well, not anymore. This is Bombshell: a chaotic, explosive, blood-dripping, soundtrack powered by metal isometric shooter that is a sci-fi take on the action RPG. With the main character evoking a Furiosa of “Mad Max” vibe, you’d expect some depth to the character that just never goes beyond puddle deep. You might want to profess the heavens, “Hail to the Queen, baby!” – but that just isn’t the case here. Bombshell flounders in direction and execution, that should be better than it actually is.
Legendary games publisher 3D Realms and Danish game developer Interceptor Entertainment – creators of the award-winning 2013 Rise of the Triad remake – are excited to announce final product and pricing details for their upcoming Action-RPG shooter ‘Bombshell’ which is set to releases January 29th 2016.
From the creators of 2013’s Rise of the Triad comes Bombshell, a top-down action role-playing game for PC and PlayStation 4.
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?
Despite the generic-sounding name, Shadow Warrior is actually a reimagining and reboot of the 1997 classic from 3DRealms, which came after the release of the mega-hit, Duke Nukem 3D. This Shadow Warrior, coincidentally, follows the release of the mega-dud, Duke Nukem Forever. The good news, is that Shadow Warrior stops following Duke Nukem at this point.
