The cover art for Interceptor Entertainment's upcoming Rise of the Triad reboot will probably ring a bell with old-time shooter fans.

"Wait a minute," you say. "Rise of the Triad is being released digitally. Why does it need cover art?" My answer would be quite simply that I have no idea, but I like it: as this comparison image shows, it's a nearly direct clone of the original, right down to the old-school RSAC advisory label. Not practical, perhaps, but very groovy.

Here's something that'll probably be a little more useful: system requirements!


  • OS: Windows XP 32-bit
  • Processor: 2.4 GHz Dual Core Processor or Better
  • Memory: 2 GB RAM
  • Graphics: ATI Radeon HD 3870 / NVIDIA 8800 GT
  • DirectX: 9.0
  • Hard Drive: 5 GB HD space
  • Sound: DirectX Compatible


  • OS: Windows 7 64-bit
  • Processor: 2.4 GHz Quad Core Processor or Better
  • Memory: 4 GB RAM
  • Graphics: AMD Radeon HD 6950 / NVIDIA GeForce GTX 560
  • DirectX: 9.0
  • Hard Drive: 5 GB HD space
  • Sound: DirectX Compatible

Not exactly Crysis levels of hardware needed for this one, which is nice; the quad core CPU might be pushing it for some folks but a GTX 560 is pretty much baseline equipment for any kind of gaming PC these days.

Interceptor also announced that Rise of the Triad will be released DRM-free on GOG and Green Man Gaming as well as on Steam. We still don't have a hard release date, but look for it to arrive sometime this summer.
