Unreal Tournament 2004 is a futuristic arena-based shooter developed by Epic Games and Digital Extremes and published by Atari for the PC on March 16, 2004. An enhanced version of Unreal Tournament 2003, Unreal Tournament 2004 uses the Unreal Engine 2.5 game engine to include a variety of new content, including vehicular combat (ranging from tanks and aircraft to full-blown space combat), new weapons and characters, brand new maps (bringing the total number of maps to over 100), a new single-player campaign experience, and three brand new game modes (including the return of the mission-based Assault game mode from the original Unreal Tournament).

Game modes


Classic free-for-all gameplay. Reach a target number of frags to win.

Team Deathmatch

Similar to deathmatch but with teams. The first team to reach target number of frags wins.

Last Man Standing

Similar to deathmatch but with a limited number of lives. Last player alive wins.

Capture the Flag

Teams compete to capture the opponent's flag and return it to their base. First team to reach target number of flag captures wins.

Vehicle Capture the Flag

Capture the Flag with vehicles. First team to reach target number of flag captures wins.

Double Domination

Similar to the well known "King of the Hill" mode in other games, domination contains two control points that must be captured and held in unison by teams in order to gain points. First team to reach target number of points wins. This mode was cut out of the game's sequel, Unreal Tournament III.


The closest thing UT2004 has to missions, assault mode tasks each team with a set number of objectives. One team is attacking while the other is defending and trying to prevent the attacking team from completing their objectives. If the objectives are completed within a time limit, the attacking team wins, but if the time runs out without the objectives being completed the defending team takes the win. After every round, attacking and defending teams switch sides.

Bombing Run

Introduced in UT2003, the objective in Bombing Run is to take the bomb that spawns in the middle of the map and carry it into the enemy base and through the hoop located there. First team to reach target score wins. To do this you are given a "Bomb Launcher" whenever you are carrying the bomb. By left clicking the gun will, as the name suggests, launch the bomb out for anyone to pick up. But if you right click first when aiming at one of your teammates, the gun will "lock on" and home in on that person when you fire it making it easier to pass the bomb. As stated earlier the aim is to take the bomb to the enemy hoop. There are two ways you can do this, one is fire it into the hoop nabbing your team three points. Or you can try and jump through the hoop with the bomb scoring you seven points but usually giving your player an environmental death.


Invasion is a simple survival mode. The players are forced to work together to try and survive endless waves of monsters that get increasingly difficult with each wave. Once a player dies they cannot re-spawn until the round is over. Rounds can either end after a time limit (victory), or when all players are dead (failure).


Mutant is a deathmatch-type game mode where every player starts out with all weapons, and the first player to get a kill becomes the “Mutant”. This player has unlimited ammo as well as the berserk, speed, and invisibility power-ups. They are also constantly losing health and cannot pick up health packs, but they gain health with every kill they make. The person with the lowest score is given the title of “Bottom Feeder” and only the Mutant and Bottom Feeder can kill players without those titles.


Onslaught is a vehicle-based game mode in which the objective is to capture a series of power nodes connecting your and your opponents’ bases and destroy the power core located within their base. First team to destroy opponents’ power core wins. This mode was combined with Assault mode to form Warfare mode in Unreal Tournament III.
