New Unreal Tournament Announced
[Image: unreal2k4-small21.png]

So, the newest incarnation of Unreal Tournament has been announced and Epic have decided to take a strange turn with it's development: declaring that the game will be completely free to players and practically built by the community.

Starting from yesterday, a small band of UT veterans was gathered by Epic who began work on the game immediately. In addition to this, the creation process will involve the UT community and unreal Engine 4 devs:
Steve Polge Wrote:From the very first line of code, the very first art created and design decision made, development will happen in the open, as a collaboration between Epic, UT fans and UE4 developers. We’ll be using forums for discussion, and Twitch streams for regular updates.

So good news for you Unreal Tournament fans out there who didn't know it already.

RE: Unreal Tournament
Like ID they make money on the engine licence, so It makes sense commercially.
People getting involved, contributing to this will be making games/app that feed licence fees back later.
better not be a freemium travesty, although I still play UT2004 still.

Theism is to believe what other people claim, Atheism is to ask "why should I".

According to Epic's announcement, when the game is available for play it will be completely free, not an Allegedly Free /Free to Pay Game.

Sounds like a ploy to get free labor to work on their game.

Agreed.

Although I'd like to see a throwback to the original Unreal.

Keep in mind, this UT is essentially crowd-sourced, so if the community at large wants original UT throw-backs, there'll be plenty of them.

No, not the original Unreal Tournament, I'm talking about the original Unreal.

Failing that, I'd love to see another Unreal Championship 2 (an original XBOX exclusive) that added 3rd person and melee weapons into the mix.
