Rise of the Triad remake gets retro bonus

Described as a “ludicrous nostalgia bomb”, the pre-order incentive for Rise of the Triad is something pretty special. The eagerly-anticipated remake is out this month, but if you already know this one’s destined for your collection, act fast.

Starting today, pre-orders for Rise of the Triad will also net you the Apogee Throwback Pack – available for immediate download.

The Pack is packed full of retro shootery goodness: The original Rise of the Triad: Dark War and Extreme Rise of the Triad, plus Blake Stone: Aliens of Gold and Blake Stone: Planet Strike.

If, for whatever reason, you only want the old-school, you can snag the Pack by itself for US$9.99, but surely you’re after the new reboot as well, right?

The new Rise of the Triad is powered by the Unreal Engine 3, and promises everything you loved most about the original (crazy weapons, game modes, even the secrets), bundled up with some improved gameplay, achievements, multiplayer leaderboards and – of coruse – stunning new visuals.

Want in? Head to your favourite online retailers and snap up Rise of the Triad – you can find it at Apogee, Steam, GOG.com and Green Man Gaming, to name a few.
