The return of the legend! Unreal II is the next step in the evolution of the Unreal series on PC. A story-driven epic, Unreal II uses advanced new technology to combine the magic of Unreal's single-player game experience with the fast-paced multiplayer mayhem of Unreal Tournament. The result is a next-gen game that offers an intense and compelling playing experience.Innovative Game Play – Unreal II: The Awakening combines intense, pulse-pounding action with the magic of exploration and discovery and RPG-style character interaction
The long awaited follow-up to Epic Games’ groundbreaking single player opus, Unreal, Unreal II: The Awakening incorporates the same absorbing story-driven gameplay, cunningly ferocious enemies and nail biting tension that made the original title the top choice for first person action fans worldwide.
Developed by Infogrames’ Legend Entertainment, Unreal II: The Awakening uses next-generation Unreal technology created by the masterminds at Epic to deliver intense life-or-death action in the most breathtaking scenery and environments ever displayed in a computer game.
In the game, players jump into the scarred combat boots of a grizzled lawman of the future, dispatched to more than 10 unique worlds to battle a torrent of bizarre alien creatures and hard-hitting enemy soldiers to stop an malevolent plot to awaken an ancient power. Between missions, players return to an orbiting ship where they can interact with their crew members, research items acquired during missions and refresh their arsenal. Designed to challenge both the hardcore ‘fragger’ and welcome the first time FPSer, Unreal II: The Awakening can be played fast and furious by the adrenaline junky or more slowly to ease newer players into the fray.
Focusing on innovative gameplay, Unreal II: The Awakening poses unique tactical challenges in each mission, including the rescuing of hostages, assaulting enemy fortresses, escorting civilians, stealth infiltration, defending outposts and more traditional search-and-destroy sorties. The game also includes elements of exploration and discovery in exotic new settings that range from stunningly realistic outdoor terrain to spine-chilling alien cities, dark undersea bases, archaeological dig sites and more.
