Rise of the Triad Studio Reveals Cover Art, System Specs and More

Rise of the Triad 2013 cover

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!

Minimum:

  • 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

Recommended:

  • 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.
