Marathon: Resurrection Released
7:49 AM | Cord Kruse | 29 comments
After nearly seven full years in development, Team Unpfhorgiven has released Marathon: Resurrection, a complete single and multi-player recreation of the original, legendary game, Marathon by Bungie Studios, as a free total conversion modification (Mod) for Unreal Tournament.
The total conversion mod offers a complete single player experience, 27 solo maps, 16 new multiplayer maps, new skins, new monsters, and a variety of new weapons.
Our goal was to bring a classic game into a modern engine, on a more universal platform that allows the re-telling of this fascinating story in a way that does justice to the original, but also allows us to give it an updated and unique flavour. We hope that it will appeal to the old Marathon fans looking to re-live some nostalgia and witness things they only dreamed of in the original engine, as well as new fans, looking to enjoy a classic in a new way. Thank you for playing Marathon:Resurrection and thank you for standing by our efforts.Some of Resurrection's features:
This release 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.
