XMP

From Liandri Archives

Jump to: navigation, search

XMP, or eXpanded MultiPlayer, is a class- and vehicle-based gametype in Unreal 2.

XMP was designed and developed by Legend Entertainment as a kind of bonus pack, to add a multiplayer component to Unreal 2. The 274.1 MB patch was released in 2003, and requires Unreal 2's play disc to play.

XMP gameplay is somewhat similar to that of a Vehicle Capture the Flag game with four flags instead of two. The object of XMP is to capture the two Artifacts of the enemy team and return them to your base, while keeping your own team's two Artifacts. Once all four Artifacts are captured by one team, that team has won the game. Additionally, both teams have an energy reserve used to power their vehicles and everything else. Every member should use energy efficiently and help gather new energy.

Although created by the original developer Legend, publisher Atari does not offer support for XMP.[1]

Reception

The original Unreal 2 (released February 2003) wasn't as popular as other Unreal games, partly because it didn't have a multiplayer component. XMP was Legend's solution to this problem; the developers worked in their spare time to create XMP, unsupported by publisher Atari. XMP probably simply came too late (December 2003), because neither Unreal 2 nor XMP became as popular as other games in the franchise. Atari closed Legend in January 2004.[2][3][4][5]

There have been three large bonus packs for XMP, although none by developer Legend Entertainment or publisher Atari.
