About Unreal

Unreal, or Unreal 1 as some of us now call it, was developed jointly by two companies, Epic Megagames and Digital Extremes and released in mid 1998. It represented four years of intense work by both the DE and Epic teams, and resulted in a quantum leap forward for first person shooter games. Unreal introduced us to a whole new universe of evil doers, weapons and gameplay. Here is where we first met the Skaarj, Titans, Brutes, Nali, ASMD, Eightball Launcher, RazorJack and more. For those of us who first bought it, there was no turning back...

The game featured both singleplayer and multiplayer modes, as well as online coop and deathmatch. The online play was, to be kind, not ready for prime time, but the game was so immersive that it developed a cult following despite this shortcoming. Over time, Epic Megagames (later known as Epic Games) released a series of patches, improving online play and 3D rendering, among other things, and it wasn't long before Unreal became a true gaming classic.
