Unreal 2

Good news for all you Unreal fans out there. Unreal 2 has shown up on retail radars and will be in stores soon (Supposedly by February 4th). Here's a short little explanation from Planet Unreal:
Unreal 2 (A.K.A. Unreal: Episode 2, Unreal 2: The Awakening) is the single-player only sequel to the original Unreal. It’s being developed by Legend Entertainment, who made Wheel of Time and the Unreal: Return to Na Pali Mission Pack.

While Unreal 2 takes place in the same universe as the original Unreal, the settings, characters, and creatures are different. In fact, the only significant returning baddie is the Skaarj. No Nali healing fruit this time around, sorry!

For more information, check out GameSpy's Preview or gawk at some of the (recently updated) screenshots.

Wait a second! Did you say single-player only?!?

Yes, Legend has dropped the multiplayer aspect of Unreal 2 in order to concentrate on delivering the best story-driven, solo gaming experience. If multiplayer is your big thing, you need to be playing UT 2003.

And while Unreal 2 won't ship with multiplayer support, that doesn't necessarily mean someone won't find some way to add it back in. Who knows? Maybe they're saving something for the mission pack?
Previews look good. Game looks good. Story??? Maybe another Half-Life in the making? We'll see.

If you're lucky, maybe you'll be able to catch my thoughts on the game, once it hits store shelves. Perhaps I'll even comment on some thoughts from GameSpy's review.
