Thread: New Unreal Tournament in Development!

  1. #1

    Default New Unreal Tournament in Development!


    Work on the future of Unreal Tournament begins today, and we’re happy to announce that we’re going to do this together, with you. We know that fans of the game are as passionate about Unreal Tournament as we are. We know that you have great ideas and strong opinions about where the game should go and what it should be. So let’s do something radical and make this game together, in the open, and for all of us.

    Here’s the plan:
    • We’ve created a small team of UT veterans that are beginning work on the project starting today.
    • 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.
    • If you are a fan and you want to participate, create a free account and join the forum discussion.
    • All code and content will be available live to UE4 developers on GitHub.
    • The game will be true to its roots as a competitive FPS.
    • Development will be focused on Windows, Mac and Linux.

    So what’s the catch?
    • It will take many months until the game is playable by gamers. This is real development from scratch.
    • When the game is playable, it will be free. Not free to play, just free.
    • We’ll eventually create a marketplace where developers, modders, artists and gamers can give away, buy and sell mods and content. Earnings from the marketplace will be split between the mod/content developer, and Epic. That’s how we plan to pay for the game.

    A lot of this is brand new for Epic, and we don’t yet have everything figured out. Things will definitely go wrong from time to time, and when they do, we’ll have to work through them together. There will be a lot of tough decisions to make, and not every feature will make it into the game. But if you’re a fan of Unreal Tournament, a UE4 developer, or a future modder – or if you just want to learn how we make games – we hope you’ll join us. It’s going to be fun.

    It is amazing just to have access to this engine alone.

    I have already subscribed and started brushing up on my modding/map-making skills.

    Seems far to good to be true. If it works, it'll be sensational.

    Biggest challenge = juggling all the input/ideas?!

    Extremely excited, this is probably the best thing that they could do with UT.

    Really guys? There's been a thread in the Private ACI UT Forums about this for quite some time....

    I rock a lawsuit when I'm going to court, a white suit when I'm getting divorced
    A black suit at the funeral home, and my birthday suit when I'm home alone
