'Return to Marathon' Debuts
2:15 PM | Michael Eilers | Comment on this story

Confirming that the Marathon series is far from obsolete -- in fact, it seems to be experiencing a renaissance -- longtime Marathon community member Claude Errara has announced the release of Return to Marathon, a new scenario for Marathon Infinity. Here is the description:

Return to Marathon v1.0, a new scenario for Marathon: Infinity.

Revisit the Marathon, 184 years after you saw it last. Explore
familiar areas, but beware new dangers! Things have gone horribly,
horribly wrong after UESC abandonment... and it's up to you to
sort them out.

Wander through three enormous levels - large parts will be
familiar, some parts will not. Remember that this is a deserted,
derelict moon - there are pitfalls and hazards at every turn. The
obsolete air recycling system has begun to break down without
maintenance... there are times you'll be scrambling for an oxygen
recharger. Things have taken up residence in once-pristine
hallways - and very, very few of them are friendly.

Go back to where it all began, and experience the thrill of
discovery all over again.

Ah, the suspense of airless levels! With this expansion, Marathon: Rubicon on the way and the continuing development of the Aleph One project, the Marathon universe that Bungie founded continues to expand long after they have moved on to new projects. The 23 MB archive is available both as a single download and as segments; follow the links below for information and downloads.
