TRON 2.0 15th Anniversary Gift From LDSO To TRON Fans

By TronFAQ on Sunday, August 26, 2018 at 4:46 PM
Today is the 15th Anniversary of the release of TRON 2.0 (at the time I’m writing this). The game was released in North America on August 26, 2003. (Though it had a limited release 3 days earlier, exclusively in Germany, I believe.)

The link below will take you to a download that contains concept art, wallpapers, and videos about TRON 2.0. Some of this content probably hasn’t been seen, by the majority of TRON fans, for over a decade. (I’ll also try submitting this to GOG.com, to see if they’ll add it as a bonus "goodies" download for TRON 2.0.)

TRON 2.0 Concept Art/Wallpapers/Videos Download

In addition to this newly released collection of TRON 2.0 content: LDSO has previously released the TRON 2.0 soundtrack and game manual, which can also be found if you visit the link above.

All of the videos in the download, plus more, can be found on the LDSO YouTube channel if you'd prefer not to download them.

The picture to the left, is the very first content I produced when TRON 2.0 was announced. This was even before LDSO existed, and it also preceded my TRON 2.0 Unofficial FAQ, which I became known for (hence the nickname "TronFAQ").

It was a page I named "TRON 2.0 Spoilers and Speculation", and it went live in early 2003. As the name of the page indicated, I posted some spoilers and speculated about what the game would be like, before it was released. Some of the concept art, in the download being released today, was featured on this page.

There’s another story I could tell about the page, regarding how Disney was not happy about it and contacted me. But I’ll save that for another time.

Thanks to Disney, Monolith Productions, Steven Lisberger (who went uncredited for his contributions), Richard Taylor and Syd Mead (who contributed to the game as well), and everyone who worked on TRON 2.0.

Thank you for creating such a memorable, and fun, game. That perfectly captured the aesthetic, humor, and imaginative storytelling of the original TRON. It absolutely had many fans excited and spellbound at release, as the first follow-up to the original film in decades.

October 30th, 2019 UPDATE: Monolith recently released some new concept art for TRON 2.0 I'd never seen before, as part of their 25th Anniversary celebration. I asked for, and got permission, from Monolith to share this new TRON 2.0 concept art. In return, they asked that I provide a link to their Official Monoilith Productions Discord channel, where the new art originated from.

Since Monolith has released more concept art, I've updated the download on this page to include the few new pieces of art Monolith provided.

    I would like to thank you for continuing this blog. TRON 2.0 is an excellent game and your continued support of it is greatly appreciated, at least by myself.

    I can not believe that it has been 15 years since the game premiered. It seems like yesterday that I bought it from the store. I have since bought an additional 3 copies over the years to ensure that I will always have some form of it around.

    What a marvel it was to finally be in the TRON universe and throwing the disc to destroy enemies. While tastes differ, I still think that the "City Hub" level was an absolute thrill to experience, along with those moments where you interacted with the Tanks and the Recognizers.

    As far as I am concerned, there are only two canon properties to the TRON franchise: The 1982 movie "Tron" and this game.

    Again, thank you for your continued support for this game and I look forward to more posts.

    I also want to thank you.
    I really appreciate your enthusiastic work!
    Right now it feels like Tron and Tron 2.0 are on a path to be forgotten and considering Tron 2.0 it seems like your are the last person on the grid; maintaining and working on the game. We need you, program!
    Here is hope for the future: interest in Tron rising up again and active i/o towers. And maybe even User Error 3.0 ??

    I love when I dig up an old game and see people still enthusiastic about it. I'm downloading the game again after many years for a bit of nostalgic fun. Not a gamer any more, but I pop one on one in a blue moon. ;)
