Developed by Legend Entertainment (Wheel of Time, Unreal Mission Pack: Return to Na Pali), Unreal II - The Awakening is a single player experience. It is designed to immerse you in a living, breathing world of stunning, yet menacing beauty. The game takes the concept of the first person shooter and drops it into the middle of a Hollywood Sci-Fi blockbuster movie of Epic proportions. The story unfolds through high intensity combat missions linked by a narrative framework of in-game scripted sequences. Each mission will feature a different tactical situation, including hostage rescue, civilian escort, assault on an enemy base with a squad of friendly troops, defense of a structure or area against attacking enemy waves, stealth infiltration and reconnaissance, or more traditional FPS search and destroy sorties. With the Unreal Editor software bundled once more, one can expect many game mods as people create their personalized Unreal universes.
Full install of the Unreal 2 Extended Multiplayer. This requires the Unreal 2 CD.
NOTE: This is not a standalone version of XMP. You require the PLAY disc to Unreal 2: The Awakening to install the Expanded Multiplayer. XMP will also be available in the Unreal 2: The Awakening Special Edition along with an enhanced single-player game. You cannot play the full version of XMP without an install disc but try the XMP demo for a taste of the Extended Multiplayer. The all new XMP mode is a class-based multiplayer game where teams use vehicles, cooperation and Unreal II: The wakening's devastating weaponry to battle it out across large-scale terrain maps. Teams fight for control of energy sources to power their war machines, deployment points to get to the front lines quickly, and ultimately, four artifacts that are required to win each match. Current owners of Unreal II: The Awakening standard edition will be able to download the XMP multiplayer mode for free on the day the Special Edition package is released.
