The Legion doesn't appear as a fully-fledged, playable team in Unreal Tournament 2004, with the Nightmare Black Legion still taking their place, though the Necris version of the Black Legion appears as an unplayable (either by the player or the AI) in the "Other matches" tab in the Results window.
In Unreal Tournament 2004, both Kragoth and Thannis are only available from the ECE bonus pack. They can be bought by the player for their team if the player has the ECE Bonus Pack installed.
