Mars Wars

Mars Wars 3 is an Unreal Tournament 2004 modification to remake the classic title, Red Faction. It's a first person shooter, played in gametypes such as DM, CTF, RailArena and many more. Main focus is the gameplay. We're trying as hard as we can to give you the perfect gameflow you're expecting in a high quality mod such as Mars Wars.

The newest version of Mars Wars puts everything onto the next level in MWs era. Online play is much more stable and weapons are absolutely lag-free! In Mars Wars you can expect to experience one of the best FPS-multiplayer experiences ever seen in a mod.

Make no mistake, this mod will be different from other UT2004 mods.

have you managed to resolve the problem yet?
I became a little rusty when it comes to these things, can't really give a correct answer offhand yet.

I will be installing the resource files later today (first I go to sleep) and check what the problem might be.
I'll also be checking the recent changes I've done in the patch I've never released. If there were any.

It is amazing this site still has 43 visitors today. I hope those were not only google bots though. :p

Greetings and take care everyone

Official site has been moved to: but it's pretty much deserted...
and I don't think Red-Frog is working on MarsWars anymore, sadly. :(

I can't really tell why the url isn't working anymore.
I have never owned the domain, neither ever had the knowledge to run a website on my own, so I let somebody help me on that matter.
sobe is hosting the website, and we can be very grateful for that.

Maybe the domain has to be re-linked to the new website, I'm not sure. sobe hasn't showed up on xfire since 70 days ago.

But thanks for the heads up!

I'll agr4ee on it, as a mod, this is good, bot are not that bad and since play is limited, it is good, sure play with novice bots, but they don,t seem notice to me. I do not know why. Anyway

I had a problem with the mars wars Rpg mutator, which seem to crash my game several time. the only I have problem with it. was at a very high level.

I'm still here, the mod is still working for everyone. :P

There might not be any online servers as of now, but the bots are doing a GREAT job also. Most of the time I've been playing against bots anyway.

loving the good old times.. I've somewhat hit the zenith of Mars Wars. There was another update in the makes but I just didn't get around it. Probably because things have changed in my life - but smoothing out again.
