This article talks about content which didn't made the cut for any Unreal game.
These items might have been considered at some point, as there are proofs of them in betas or screenshots, but for some reason weren't featured in any Unreal game.
The N were intended to be trans-dimensional beings that can occupy different places in space and time simultaneously. Only 3 N exist but they can be in multiple places at once, and attack with psionics (each of the three N has a different weapon).
It was also supposed to be impossible to kill an N, the idea being that when you shoot one, the weapon simply depletes the energy used to fold space and time at that particular node of the N.
No concept art was released for the N, but they were described as being "Borg-like".
These quotes describe the N:
If this isn't pushing the boundaries of your imagination far enough, then welcome the N. into the fold. But be warned, you're going to need a head for abstract thought and an acute awareness of basic astro-physics just to comprehend these little buggers. The N. are trans-dimensional, omniscient beings capable of being in thousands of places simultaneously over both time and space. Theoretically, there are only three N., though in combat there may appear to be hundreds and thousands of the pesky freaks. Oh, and just to make your task that little bit harder, it's also impossible to actually kill a Borg-like N., as firing into it will only fractionally deplete the energy it expends to fold space and time. Obviously.
The N are trans-dimensional aliens that can occupy many simultaneous places in space and time. In reality, there are only three N – but because they can somehow be in more than one place at once, there appear to be hundreds of thousands of them. N weapons are all ranged and psi-based – and each of the three N has a different weapon. You can't really 'kill' an N – when you shoot one, the weapon simply depletes the energy used to fold space and time at that particular node of the N.
Trans-dimensional beings that can occupy different places in space and time simultaneously
Only three N exist, but they're crazy multi-dimensional beings that can be in multiple places at once, and attack with psionics. The mind boggles.
