The Original Strife: Veteran Edition releases for Linux, Mac and Windows PC tomorrow

In The Original Strife: Veteran Edition, you are cast into a dark future where a religious brotherhood called The Order rules supreme. You must face an army of cyborgs who convert humans to swell their #ranks. As part of the rebel forces, you must collect and assemble all the pieces of The Sigil, an artifact of great power. With The Sigil, you must defeat the leaders of The Order, including The Programmer, The Bishop, and The Loremaster. But will The Sigil prove powerful enough to defeat the force behind The Order, the mysterious being known as The Entity?

Hailed as the original FPS-#RPG game that spawned countless imitators, Strife: Veteran Edition is a love letter to the classic from 1996.

New Features Include:

  • Support for high resolutions, with proper aspect ratio.
  • OpenGL for video backend to provide portability and support for vertical sync.
  • Dynamic lighting and bloom
  • Widescreen support.
  • Ability to freely rebind all keyboard, mouse, and gamepad inputs.
  • Steam Achievements
  • Steam Trading Cards

Completion of missing and unfinished options in the original game, such as:

  • The planned “Capture the Chalice” multi-player mode.
  • Marking of current objectives on the auto-map.
  • Special HUD for the Torpedo weapon

In your role as resistance fighter, you’ll conspire with allies to demolish the fanatical ranks of the order from the inside out. The elaborate virtual environment offers 28 interconnected levels covering over 200 square miles. Explore medieval towns and industrial complexes filled with pitfalls and perils, ending in a final confrontation that will reveal the planet’s darkest secrets.
Arm yourself with the silent but lethal crossbow to the breathtaking flame thrower, you’ll toast, mince and vaporize your opponents in your search to control the ultimate weapon of mass destruction- the Sigil.

Originally developed for MS-DOS and based on the Doom Engine, The Original Strife: Veteran Edition is set to release December 12th. Re-mastered with enhanced graphics and is fully compatible with current PC operating systems, including Linux, Mac and Windows 8/8.1.
