Competitive skill based shooter? Sign me up!
UPDATE: A representative from Epic Games has reached out to us to inform that they are not planning to announce a new Unreal Tournament title. Not even worth checking out. Unreal Tournament was okay, but the offline was horrid. If they do ever make a new version of the game, hope they make a playable campaign at least.
If you're gonna play UT for the single-player then you might as well buy an iPhone for the games
UT3 was garbage and really doubt Epic could bring back the greatness of the franchise
Thats because they made it too like Gears with a UT spin on it and it didnt work. Plus UT is in the past gamers have moved on from games like UT and quake. COD/Killzone/Halo etc are the mainstream shooters now e.g. non tournament/bowl style.
UT3 was absolutely nothing like Gears, other than the fact that they shared an engine.
It would make sense with them revealing Unreal Engine 4 this year.
Wouldn't it be funny to see UT4 as the new tech demo.
Every single Unreal Tournament game this far has been amazing. That includes Unreal Championship 1 and 2 for the original xbox. I had my fingers crossed for an Unreal Tournament announcement with the Unreal Engine 4. I have already played Unreal Tournament 3 to hell and back and would love an updated fresh new game in the series. Day one purchase. I advise you as a fan to get your online time with UT4 in early before the masses flock back to that one military shooter I always hear about. Rated E For Everyone
Yeah, it's unfortunate that UT's online scene has gone down the gutter in favor of games like CoD, GoW, etc. I still remember the good ol' days when UT2K4 was the best thing ever... Anyway, here's hoping they do in fact announce UT4, and they go back to the way the campaign used to be... I didn't care for singleplayer in UT3, despite loving Instant Action and quick play game modes.
I understand where you are coming from. But the single player is the least of my worries personally. I just hope the online experience is complete. Clan support, co-op objectives, all previous match types with new creative ones. Hopefully the ability to customize your character. All the super epic music that lead us into battle in the previous games as well. New guns would also be welcomed. They were never consistent with the guns %100. Maybe the return of the lightning gun? After the long ramble the feature that I am dying for the most is to have a Halo style replay room. All matches recorded so we can share with online friends. Rated E For Everyone
More shooters yay!
Unreal Tournament isn't your everyday shooter. While I agree shooters are running rampant throughout the industry and it needs to settle down, Unreal has such a different feel from other games that happen to involve guns lol. The main thing I love about the series is the customization that you get with player mods and maps. It's what keeps people coming back years later down the road.
I hope man, I really hope. I miss the old fun but not dumb days of FPS.
I have *never* had more fun in a PC online shooter than I did with UT99. BF1942 would be a close 2nd.
Hate to sound elitest but PC exclusive/main platform or GTFO for any new unreal title. I was never really an unreal player but played Quake 3 religiously and simply put, DM shooters need keyboard/mouse to play optimally.
The problem with Epic is they have become more and more consolized developer. Sorry but the unreal tournament on ps3 and xbox did not work out.... too fast gameplay vs your typical halo sortuv game. If epic wants to gain back credibility in the pc platform they should really make an exclusive competitive shooter geared for pc gamers. The most fun ever had with a arcade shooter was from the q3a and unreal tournament back in the late 90's and early 2000
I'd love to see Unreal Tournament IV as one of the pioneer title's to utilise Unreal Engine 4.
IF they were to release another UT game it had better be more like the best UT game in the series (UT2k4) and not the piece of garbage UT3. I had so much fun and spent so much time playing UT2k4 (and being in a clan rated in the top 5 world wide) back in the day ... then they released UT2k7, or UT3 as they renamed it so as not to confuse the console kiddies. At this point the series took a nose dive and died. They compromised so much of the game to make it ok for consoles that it ended up ruining the game, and the loyal PC fanbase that made the series such a success rightfully walked away. We can only hope something good could come out of it, but given Epics history, and current future vision, I highly doubt it.
