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!

Found my old UT2004 box so I had to give the RF mod a try of course!

RED-FROG, your devotion to the RF universe is undying. I remember you from way back even with Codename: Iron Sun. This mod is PERFECT. Just playing some CTF in Checkmate against bots was a blast.

I'm late to the party of course, but I really wish this mod was popular. Even a few people to play would be all that is necessary!

First "beta patch" has been tested.
Good results, although there's still quite a few more things to fix and test.
Let's look forward to play SGT-Tankers SONIC 2D map..
Awesome job Tanker..
Pictures soon!

Thanks a lot Rainlander! :)
The version of MW3 on ModDB has a german installer, but the mod itself will be in english. It was a mistake, I didn't know the installer won't change the language. :o I think I've used WinRAR auto extractor, and that was in german. :/
