The Corporation wars is an event spanning the Unreal series.

Overview Edit

The Corporation Wars is a three-way series of wars carried on between Liandri Mining Corporation, Axon Research Corporation and Izanagi Corporation. The starting year of this war is unclear, but it's been known for spanning over a long time, and even taking place during the Tournaments, even though both Axon and Izanagi are collaborating in the Tournament sponsoring and building teams, lending facilities and even machinery such as weapons and even vehicles.

Unreal II: The Awakening Edit

The earliest canonical point of the Corporation wars can be found in the Artifact search. While Axon works with the TCA, both Liandri and Izanagi are also on their search and their mercenary units appear as enemies. So far we've seen the invasion of Janus on behalf of both Liandri and Izanagi. In the end, neither company could collect all of the artifacts.

Unreal Tournament 2003 & 2004 Edit

The map AS-Glacier covers an event of the war in 2260, where an Axon team raided an Izanagi facility and stole an Ion Plasma Tank, destroying the Izanagi base and escaping with the tank in the process.

Bonus Pack 2 Edit

Although the canonical status of this pack is unknown, the map AS-BP2-Jumpship relates to an episode of this war between Liandri and Izanagi, where Izanagi spies infiltrated the prototype Liandri Jumpship, activated its engines, and made a successful jump to Izanagi space. The year of this event is unknown.

Unreal Tournament III Edit

"Tournament stars and team captains are often recruited by the major corporations to serve as consultants for training or leading their paramilitary security forces."
- Malcolm's description in the UT3 manual

The player fights for Izanagi as part of the Ronin team in acts II and III against Axon (backed up by Iron Guard) and Liandri, respectively.

Trivia Edit

  • The event in 2004[='=]s BP2 map is a foreshadowing of the Ronin team's Izanagi ship hijacking in UT3, meaning that at least the capture of the jumpship indeed happened.
