Nightdive Studios working on Blood remaster (90s Horror FPS)


Recommended Posts




Blood, one of the leading games in a crop of late-’90s first-person shooters, is set to be updated and re-released by Atari, with developer Nightdive Studios handling the game’s restoration.


Originally released in 1997, the Monolith Productions-developed game featured grisly action and occult themes, which were popular at the time. Blood was published by GT Interactive, which was subsequently acquired by French company Infogrames, which has morphed into the latest incarnation of the Atari brand.


Washington-based Nightdive is best known for its work on enhanced versions of older games, such as Forsaken: Remastered and Turok. It is currently working on a crowdfunded reboot of the original System Shock.


Nightdive’s revamp of Blood will look much like its original version, similar to the studio’s other remasters.


“Blood stood up extremely well over time and we are taking care to preserve all the qualities that made the game so special,” producer Daniel Grayshon said. “It really only needs minor updates to provide a better user experience for contemporary audiences.”


The Windows PC game will be available on digital stores, with updated audio. But the core game will remain the same. “We will preserve the accuracy of the game behavior,” said Grayshon. No release dates have been announced as yet.
