Interceptor Entertainment is planning something big for Rise of the Triad's 1.5 patch. The remake of the 1995 classic is getting Steam Workshop support, allowing users to create custom maps to help make life a little easier for the game's robust modding community.

The trailer below explains most of the Steam Workshop goodness that's included in the new update. Players can craft their own creative landscapes for both the single-player and multiplayer game modes. Those that need a detailed walkthrough can check out this handy tutorial video.

Rise of the Triad is free to play this weekend on Steam from now until Sunday at 1PM PDT and is set to go on sale for 75% at some point during the weekend. For those that don't care for any of this modernized new hotness nonsense, the original old-school classic Rise of the Triad is also on sale this weekend through the Apogee Throwback Pack.

But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?

      Didn't notice the Apogee Pack on Steam. There are a lot of other games it's missing though... Apogee was probably the first developer name I recognized as a kid.

        I got an Apogee shirt along with the original ROTT. I wore that thing until it was ragged.
