Which if you're old enough to recall was, well, fairly intense. And kind of leaned into the whole "first-person shooters are super violent" image from the 1990s. Originally released in 1997, from developer Monolith, Blood was more than a gore-filled Gothic first-person experience - it was also fun and full of great mechanics.

Nightdive Studios is teaming up with Atari for the remaster and re-release, and follows in the studio's recent classic efforts: System Shock 2, System Shock EE, Turok, Turok 2: Seeds of Evil, and Forsaken Remastered. The work on bringing back Blood will see compatibility with modern hardware in addition to minor improvements in presentation and audio.

Nightdive's Daniel Grayshon notes, “Blood stood up extremely well over time and we are taking care to preserve all the qualities that made the game so special. It really only needs minor updates to provide a better user experience for contemporary audiences. By using some of the functions of Nightdive’s KEX engine, we’ll be able to provide compatibility with today’s video standards, with DirectX and Vulkan support.”

“We are thrilled to work with the fine team at Nightdive Studios to bring the cult classic Blood back to gamers,” added Todd Shallbetter, COO of Atari. “Blood is a grisly good time, and there’s no better team out there than Nightdive to ensure that the game will find new fans.”

No word on a release date, but we should hear more soon. For more on Blood, why not take a trip down memory lane with our feature Throwback Thursday - Blood (1997)
