Rise of the Triad relaunches on July 31, preorders get Throwback Pack

Rise of the Triad is due on July 31 and available for pre-order now, for $15, through Steam, GOG, Green Man Gaming and original developer Apogee’s own store. Pre-orders get the Apogee Throwback Pack for free. The pack usually runs $10 and includes Rise of the Triad: Dark War, the Extreme Rise of the Triad expansion pack, Blake Stone: Aliens of Gold and Blake Stone: Planet Strike.

Apogee published the Blake Stone series starting in 1993 with the shareware version of Aliens of Gold, from developer JAM Productions. It’s a first-person space adventure romp that uses the Wolfenstein 3D engine and follows British Intelligence agent Blake Stone as he takes out interstellar threats.

This year’s Rise of the Triad is a revival of the 1994 shareware shooter from Apogee Software. The revamp comes care of Apogee and Interceptor Entertainment, with a single-player campaign, multiplayer modes, a level editor and a brand new heavy metal soundtrack. Rise on.

Beatbuddy Tale of the Guardians busts out August 8
Beatbuddy: Tale of the Guardians, AKA the artist formerly known as just Beatbuddy, is booked to perform on PC, Mac, and Linux on August 6, Threaks tells us. Tickets for the rhythm-based 2D platformer by the Hamburg-based outfit will be available on Steam for $14.99.

Threaks describes its jam as "an action-adventure that takes you into the world of a song." Accompanying players on this musical journey are a number of collaborators, including Journey composer Austin Wintory, and Mirror's Edge and Tomb Raider writer Rhianna Pratchett. But if you're curious about Threaks itself, take a look at what the German team gets up to when it's not laying down sweet beats.

XCOM: Enemy Unknown for Mac comes to Steam

June 28th, 2013 No comments
The Mac version of XCOM: Enemy Unknown is available now on Steam for $40. The news represents a curious turnaround for the Mac version's developer and general Mac specialist Feral Interactive, who told us back in May it "doesn't release games on Steam."

A month later, Feral announced the arrival of the Mac version on Steam, which it says supports cross-platform multiplayer across Windows PC and Mac. Also, if you've bought the PC version on Steam, you'll have free access to the Mac version.

XCOM: Enemy Unknown launched a full-scale invasion of our Top 10 of 2012 list, eventually notching a commendable second place behind Journey. Since then, Firaxis' extraterrestrial strategy game has hovered across to iOS, where it's currently available for $20.

Angry Birds Trilogy lands on Wii U, Wii in August

June 27th, 2013 No comments

Rovio is catapulting the Angry Birds Trilogy onto Wii U and Wii later this summer, with a trailer dating it for the Nintendo systems on August 13. The compendium, comprised of Angry Birds, AB Seasons, and AB Rio, plucks some extra content on Wii U and Wii, while the Wii U version is off-TV compatible and of course features touchscreen controls.

Back when publisher Activision announced the Wii U and Wii versions of the trilogy, it also revealed the mobile money-maker had proven a success on consoles, too. The Xbox 360, PS3, and 3DS versions released late last year shifted a million copies by February 2013.

Might and Magic Clash of Heroes lays seige upon Android

Clash of Heroes, Capybara's excellent match-three adaptation of Might and Magic strategy, is available now on Android. After coming out on DS in 2009 and moving onto consoles and PC in 2011, Clash of Heroes marched onto iOS earlier this year.

It's taken a little while, but Clash of Heroes continued its journey onto Android, and like the iOS version is priced at $4.99. However, unlike on iOS, the Android version doesn't feature online battling, although local multiplayer is supported.
