The standard single player game in Unreal Tournament consists of five game types, featured as a ladder of sequential maps. They are Deathmatch, Domination, Capture the Flag, Assault, and Final Challenge which is another ladder of Deathmatch. Three wins in one ladder opens the next one, though the Final Challenge is unlocked only after completing the other four ladders in full.

Synopsis Edit

"In 2291, in an attempt to control violence among deep-space miners, the New Earth Government legalized no-holds-barred fighting. Liandri Mining Corporation working with the NEG established a series of leagues and bloody public exhibitions. The fight's popularity grew with their brutality.

Soon, Liandri discovered that the public matches were their most profitable enterprise. The professional league was formed. A cabal of the most violent and skilled warriors in known space, selected to fight in a Grand Tournament.

Now it is 2341, fifty years have passed since the founding of Deathmatch. Profits from the tournament number in the hundreds of billions.

You have been selected to fight in the Professional League by the Liandri Rules Board. Your strength and brutality are legendary. The time has come to prove you are the best.
To crush your enemies.
To win the tournament."
- Game intro

The Grand Tournament takes place in year 2291. You take the place of a warrior, with an already established team, and must win all of the challenges in the Tournament ladders in order to get access to the Challenge and beat Xan Kriegor for good.
