9:10 AM | Ben Boffey | Comment on this story
After a lengthy development cycle,Team Unpfhorgiven, the folks behind Marathon: Resurrection, have released the first public beta of their MOD for Unreal Tournament. The project is an attempt to recreate the experience of Bungie's classic shooter Marathon using all the modern features found in the Unreal Tournament engine. Here are some details:
Marathon: Resurrection recreates the Marathon environment using the capabilities of Unreal Tournament's graphics engine to the fullest, complete with a full, 3D world and fully-animated 3D weapons. Marathon physics and gameplay have been recreated and enhanced where the team thought that the result would be improved gameplay. Marathon: Resurrection is now available for download, free of cost, from the evihcra.com mirrors. More mirrors will follow in approximately one week. The public beta is multi-player only. Single player is present, but it is not meant to be playable at this stage. Team Unpfhorgiven is currently working on a single-player MOD, and it will be released in the future.The download is quite large, weighing in at over 65Mb (and will be on the next MacGames CD) and is available at evihcra.com. It is important to remember that this is just a multiplayer test version, but it's great to finally see the results after a year and a half of work. For more information be sure to check out the Marathon: Resurrection website.
