The long awaited follow-up to Epic Games' groundbreaking single player opus, Unreal, Unreal 2: 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 2: 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 ever displayed in a computer game. Check out the fact sheet below, included are some screens that you might seen allready!

In the game, players jump into the scarred combat boots of a grizzled space mercenary, 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 other 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 2: The Awakening can be played fast and furious by the adrenaline junky or more slowly to ease newer players into the impending warfare.

Focusing on innovative gameplay, Unreal 2: The Awakening poses unique tactical challenges in each mission, including rescuing 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.
