Marathon: Resurrection Releases New Images
1:04 PM | IMG News | Comment on this story
For some time we have been following the Marathon: Resurrection project, an attempt to bring the sights, sounds and action of Bungie's Marathon to the flexible Unreal Tournament engine. Although this is obviously a PC project, as there are no Mac editing tools, this "mod" is of particular interest to Mac gamers as it focuses on a gaming experience which has been (up to this point) a Mac-only exclusive.
As this project nears an initial release, the team has released seven screen shots for IMG readers to enjoy. With 1024x768 resolution and FSAA enabled, these shots reveal the reproduced weaponry from the Marathon series in action (with some logical modifications) as well as the enhanced textures the level designers are using to replicate classic Marathon levels. These shots of familiar locations rendered with the superior lighting, texture resolution and special effects of the Unreal Tournament engine are sure to give veteran Marathon fans quite a rush of nostalgia.
