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.
Online- and offline play against fully functional bots!

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.

Hey there. I was wondering if this is a conversion mod or a add on stand alone mod for UT2004 Cause i dont like to much the conversion mods cause i dont want to ruin the standard UT2004 game just want to add some extra stuff in it is it possible with this mod? thnx for reading this comment & perhaps answering as well

It runs like an own game with a new menu/serverbrowser etc and uses only a few original UT2004 files.
It does not overwrite any UT2004 files. When you start normal UT2004 you will not find anything of Mars Wars.
