The wait is over: the first Rise of the Triad update is now live on Steam and GOG.com, including hundreds of fixes, tweaks, optimizations and features requested by the rabid fan community during the first month since release. Said Frederik Schreiber of Interceptor Entertainment: “We are extremely happy about the feedback we have gotten from you guys and we couldn’t have done it without you.” He’s talking about the fans there. Duh.

The team has spent the last month collecting every single bug, tweak and suggestion posted on forums, blogs and websites, in order to create one mega patch. On top of all that, Interceptor has also been working on five brand new multiplayer maps and a map playlist tool — among the most requested features from the community — which are also included in patch 1.1. And it’s all absolutely free, of course.
