The Marathon: Resurrection project is breathing new, fully 3D life into an old 2.5D action game. With the advanced 3D capabilities of today's graphics cards, Marathon can become an even more visually-stunning and addictive game. The vessel for this rebirth: Unreal Tournament. Team Unpfhorgiven is taking all those tired, old sprites and turning them into true 3D models. The enemies will be greasier, scarier and, with the help of Unreal Tournament AI programming, far more challenging opponents. We're converting both single-player and multiplayer modes of Marathon, so that PC users can experience what a FPS plot should be like, and Mac users can indulge themselves in nostalgia, and everyone can enjoy the unique, addictive sensation derived from multiplayer Marathon over TCP/IP. We're taking it all, messing with it, and spitting it back out. If you're looking for a carbon copy, try the excellent Aleph One. If you're here, you're getting Marathon, Team Unpfhorgiven-style....
Fourteen years since the official version 2.0 release and approximately 21 years since the original work for Marathon:Resurrection started, we are surprised and thrilled to have an update available! An enterprising fan (Matias 'Aspide' Mulliez) showed a keen interest and poured many hours into making this release possible. This release has major bug fixes to virtually all single and multi-player maps, weapons and monster as well as monster AI. Most importantly, this release makes multi-player co-op play possible for the single-player Marathon story.
We are impressed and amazed at the legacy of the original Marathon games by Bungie and the continued response and gameplay that Marathon:Resurrection receives. The primary feature list remains the same as the 2.0 release with improvements too numerous to list here. There is an extensive update list in the Help section downloaded with the release.
This is not a simple patch or a beta, it is a complete install and as such can be installed by itself over a fresh Unreal Tournament 436 install or over a previous version of Marathon:Resurrection.
Once installed, the single player experience is meant to be a loosely based replica of the original Marathon by Bungie. Many things that we included were not part of the original, and a few small things may have been omitted, but otherwise this release stays true to the original.
- A working copy of the original Unreal Tournament (patched to version 436, or unofficial version 469b)
- Any computer system that can run aforementioned copy of Unreal Tournament
* Unreal Tournament is available for purchase from Good Old Games or Steam online stores.
