Developer: Various Unreal Community Talents (mainly Yrex, but see credits), based on original work by Level Infinity

Status: Developing




Synopsis: 47 years before the events of Unreal, a civilian Terran colonist Brandon Steele finds himself in the wrong place at the wrong time, when the city of Vegra, part of the Seriate IV colony on the moon Io falls the victim of a brutal assault by the terrorists of the Vesspine Confederation. Having realized he's in the middle of a warzone, he has to fight for his life as he is pursued not only by the terrorist forces but also the terrifying Skaarj Empire.

Features:
- 8 all-original missions
- 4 new weapons
- New deadly enemies: human terrorists from the Vesspine Confederation, terrifying new Skaarj leader units and more on the way

Latest News: we're slowly closing in on the first alpha milestone.

Important Notice: This is a community restoration project of a cancelled expansion pack for Unreal. Leo(T.C.K.) has recovered all eight levels that were planned, some in larval form, others partially complete, some even nearly complete. After he provided the initial fixes and conversions, Yrex and myself have taken it upon ourselves to get some work done in order to fully complete the add-on. Currently a lot of the groundwork has been done by Yrex to the core code file and three of the levels are essentially complete as far as build goes (and have actual gameplay, albeit not adjusted to the storyline yet). Further work is still required but it is progressing very nicely.

While the OldUnreal topic has the recovered content and Leo's initial conversions, I'd rather hold off on posting public releases of the current work in progress.

I was following some posts Leo had made about this on other forums, but it's great to see a concrete thread about it. Having been sort of aware of this one floating around in the ether for a while it's really cool that there is now a restored version out with fleshed out synopsis (it was strangely hard to glean details about what this was before now). Nice work to all involved in the restoration :tup:

Wow this is fantastic work, I've always loved how much unreleased content Leo(T.C.K.) has managed to recovered in all this years. I'm already looking forward to this. :D

Thanks to Yrex' dedication, we're just two SP maps away from the first alpha milestone. Some more recent shots can be seen below.

Level 3: River Ruins

Level 4: Lava Plant

Level 5: Mountain Stronghold

Level 6: Starport / Comm Center

Overall, levels 3-8 are Alpha-1-Milestone ready. This huge progress wouldn't be possible without Yrex, Leo(T.C.K.), PaperCoffee and Rikia. Let us take a moment to appreciate their work!

Ah damn, looks like you guys got there first with implementing ME:Andromeda-style glyph sudoku puzzles in Unreal :P - will be interesting to see how the interaction is, cool to see something new either way.
