Unreal Mission Pack: Return to Na Pali is an expansion pack for Unreal, released on May 31, 1999. The expansion pack was bundled with the full game of Unreal in a package called Unreal Gold, released in 2001.

Synopsis Edit

"Escaping Na Pali was impossible. Going back is insane."

"You faced the worst of the Skaarj Empire and lived to tell about it. Your one chance now? They call it a salvage run. You call it another trip to Hell. Get ready.
―Box art description

Development history Edit

Return to Na Pali began development sometime from mid- to late 1998 by Legend Entertainment, using many of the left over art and assets from the development of Unreal, and nearly all of the levels that were cut from Unreal.

No demo was ever released for this expansion pack.

Release dates Edit

RTNP was released to stores on May 31, 1999. Eventually, it was packaged up with Unreal and released as Unreal Gold, on August 30, 2001. Unreal Gold later became part of the Totally Unreal package, as well as Unreal Anthology.

The campaign of RTNP takes place about five years after the events in Unreal, and puts you, the Prisoner 849, back on the planet Na Pali to find another crashed spacecraft. It can be played in both single player mode and cooperative mode.

In addition to the campaign, which features both solo and coop modes, Return to Na Pali features eight multiplayer modes: Deathmatch, Team Deathmatch, King of the Hill, Darkmatch, Marine Match, Cloak Match, Gravity Match and Terran Weapon Match. With the exception of Darkmatch, the rest of the multiplayer gametypes use the Deathmatch maps.
