Unreal II Special Edition Announced - XMP Demo Tomorrow

Atari Announces Unreal II The Awakening - Special Edition is the press release announcing that the upcoming free multiplayer add-on will also be packaged in a new special edition of the game. The release does not specify when the retail edition will become available, but says that free downloads of the XMP portion will be made available for current Unreal II owners when it hits shelves. On a related note, Atari sends news that a demo version of the XMP ("expanded multiplayer") portion that is at the heart of the special edition is going to become available tomorrow. Here's the deal:


The free downloadable demo of the new multiplayer mode for UnrealŪ II: The Awakening -- called XMP -- will be made available tomorrow.

The demo will not require the previous installation of the full retail game.

The download will premiere on and will be available everywhere immediately thereafter.

It's unfortunate that Invisible War was associated with such impossibly high expectations. I think gamers thought it would be the Second Coming or some such and that anything less than Jesus-in-a-Box would be completely unacceptable. I'm actually leaning towards saying that Invisible War is the better game but even still that can't match what some folks thought it would be.

I'd definately recommend picking it up if you at all enjoyed the first DX. Even though the technical issues are still there (these can be fixed by a good patch though) the actual gameplay is excellent.

Something that I find really good about the full version that wasn't at all apparent in the demo was the idea of not knowing who to trust. This appeared three times in DX1: at the 747, with Maggie Chow, and when you picked your endgame at Area 51. In Invisible War this occurs all the time.

Anyway I'm really enjoying Invisible War and find it to be very good sequel to Deus Ex.
