The Single Player portion of Unreal Tournament 2003 details the champion's rise to fame.

Overview Edit

The Single player mode of Unreal Tournament 2003 is similar to that of Unreal Tournament: you start on your own, beating opponents, then leading a team, then facing against the champion in an epic duel for the title. There are many new features this time, though: for starters, there is no Deathmatch ladder, instead there's a Team Deathmatch one taking its place (aside of the obvious replacements of Double Domination instead of Domination and Bombing Run instead of Assault) and a qualifications round is also in place. This time, instead of forming part of a predefined team, you draft who your teammates are going to be and face them all in a previous match before the Tournament proper.

Trivia Edit

  • Following the guessing that Malcolm's rise to fame was detailed in the first Tournament, one could guess that this mode details Gorge's ascension to fame, considering that a) he's the default character, and b) Unreal Tournament 2004 and Unreal Championship 2: The Liandri Conflict explicitly say that Gorge was the responsible for breaking Malcolm's winning streak in the same way UT2004 says that Malcolm was the responsible for breaking Xan's winning streak.
  • This game's versions of Venom, Black Legion and Iron Guard are clearly unrelated to the other games' counterparts, in so far as to show that Brock and Lauren aren't involved with this games' Guard.
