Why Epic Games Needs a New Unreal Tournament

A growing PC gaming market, refreshingly and slightly absurd theatrics, a profitable free to play potential, and taking it back to basics. These are the key reasons Nick Pinkterton of The Game Fanatics believes it's time to revisit Unreal Tournament. Take a glance into the method behind his madness here. (PC)

UT3 left a bad taste with many fans and doubt Epic could build a solid UT experience anymore
GillHarrison  +   602d ago
I agree. I don't really think a new UT would even sell, Call of Duty sort of has a monopoly on arcade style FPS games.
Eldyraen  +   602d ago
To be fair, CoD and UT are no where near the same type of shooter. The differences are huge other than they both have guns and a definite lack of realism.

There is plenty of room for diversity and people that lump some games together are just kidding themselves as the games can play completely different and have different fans (with some that like both of course).

A game doesn't need to sell 10 million like CoD to be profitable, especially as Unreal has the engine anyways. If they made a new one, even as a downloadable arcade title, plenty of people would give it a shot. Granted I'd rather UE4 and a big retail product just for the graphics to be top notch ;)

Epic Games dropped the ball on this one and should have maintained support for UT3 like Valve has done with TF2.

With Shootmania coming out and moving Twitch shooters forward i really dont see Epic Games doing anything worth while with a new UT.....other than making too Gears of Warsy.

Shootmania suck seriously, i really want to see a new nervous fps(a la UT and Q3) worthwhile.

simple fps, but mix it with speed and skill.... PWNING TIME!!!

but seriously, going F2P would be nice for this game. there was always a lot of mods and some of the maps were amazing.
miss the good old days....

F2P in the next UT? Hell no.

what was everyone's problem with UT3 anyways?

I love it, I was playing it last nite and I have most of its trophies
Would love for a new one. ^_^

Ah Unreal Tournament. Back when I used to actually like Epic. What have you done for me lately?

It's fine to bring back UT but have a different dev team do it. Epic has lost their fastball.

One word: "Redeemer". Bring back UT with the Redeemer weapon cleverly hidden on each level and I'll be happy to see another Epic masterpiece.

I remember good times back when UT2004 was popular. It was my favourite online shooter, it had that true futuristic feeling and awesome gameplay.
And yeah, UT on Unreal Engine 4 would be just sweet.

Digital Extremes did the majority of the programming on UT, 2003, 2004. Since then this series has gone down hill. I am in favor of a new UT if DE works on it with them. In other news DE has amazing F2P coming out soon, WARFRAME!

Arena shooters just don't sell anymore, and that makes me very upset because those are my favourite type of shooters. So fast paced and fun.

Screw Unreal Tournament, we've gotten enough of that over the years. What I really want is a new Unreal. More than likely, though, it would turn out to be nothing like the first game, and more like the really disappointing Unreal 2, or even worse.
