What are the possibilities for multi player in Unreal 2? Are they less then Unreal Tournament.
Or is there a UT2 coming up?

Rest assured ... U2, although priority is on singleplayer game, will also have a strong multiplayer part. with DM, LMS, TDM, CTF and XMP.

For details I suggest that you read section 4.4 of the FAQ in my signature. :)

In short, a Team based multiplayer mode involving 3 classes, Grunt (Soldier, all the weapons), Spook (sniper/TFC spy) and Tech (Sets up replicators (that make armour/weapons, builds sensors, turrets, walls etc.).

The object of the game is to retrieve all the artifacts in the level and take them to your base. These will start in the midfield, but obviously you will have to raid the oponent's base to steal some later into the game.

This game should be very fast, tactical and lots and lots of fun. :)

I think both Botplay and 'real' multiplayer will rock!

Of course singleplayer, too. ;)

You're kidding, right? :con:

In case you're not ...
TDM = Team DeathMatch
LMS = Last Man Standing
Just like in UT.

I hope they really work on the XMP mode. DM and CTF gametypes have been practically perfected.

Like Assault was for UT, XMP will probably be the new innovative gametpye for U2. Though Assault had a lot of promise I don't think they made it as good as it could have been out of the box.

Hopefully, with U2, they will spend time to get this XMP mode right

XMP is based on Legend's Wheel of Time gamemode "Citadel". They added the classes, but the basic idea is the same. This means XMP is an evaluation of an existing and tested gamemode. XMP should be good. :)
