Epic has confirmed what it teased earlier this week, which is that they’re making a new “Unreal Tournament”. “The coolest thing is not just that we’re making a new ‘Unreal Tournament’”, said senior project programmer Steve Polge in a video. “We’re planning on doing it in close collaboration with you, with the community.”

Epic is seeking input from developers and gamers alike. “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,” wrote Polge in a blog post.

Unreal Tournament

You can create a free account on the forums to join the conversation, and all code and content will be available--live--to Unreal Engine 4 developers on GitHub. Epic is focusing on developing the new title for Windows, Mac, and Linux.

At some point, Epic is going to create a marketplace where you can buy or give away or sell mods and extra content for the game, with the profits from the transactions split between the content creators and Epic.

Of course development will take months (at least), but you can jump in starting today. Hit the wiki for more details and links. And godspeed.

Ah, I miss playing "Deck 16", one of my favorite maps of all time. Those were the days when we didn't have this epidemic of wide spread cheating and hacks.

UT3 is still on my playlist. I have a lot of custom maps, and I play it often.


Here's to another new UT game and the hours I'll spend playing it into the night.

Dogs are great judges of character, and if your dog doesn't like somebody being around, you shouldn't trust them.
