Epic’s Mark Rein announces Unreal Tournament comeback

Epic Unreal Tournament

Epic’s lack of releases since Gears of War’s given the impression they were moving away from game development to focus on tinkering with the Unreal Engine. A tweet from Mark Rein shows that’s far from the truth, Epic have been working on a new game in the company’s most famous series: Unreal Tournament.

Rein slammed the hype generators from zero to full power with a single tweet:

Frustratingly, the tweet gives no tangible details. We don’t know whether this will be Unreal Tournament 4 or 2015.

We have to wait till Tuesday to find out further details:

The original Unreal Tournament is still, for my money, one of the best multiplayer shooters ever created. Colour me excited to see what Epic have created in the seven years since Unreal Tournament 3.

If they go back to their roots they can take this blank cheque.

They really need to keep the free map editor feature. So many games now unnecessarily milk the fans with map packs when the community could be making these maps instead.

But other than that... put some love into the game, not some lazy console port like ut3... I mean it didn't even have a favorites feature on release, how did no one raise a red flag over that?

w00t!

I had actually believed them when they said time and time again they have no plans for a new UT. Usually I take those kind of comments with skepticism but I believed it this time. Epic didn't seem like they were a company to make this type of game anymore.

I was very happy to read this and I hope they do it right this time. It doesn't have to be a PC exclusive but do not make concessions for the console version. Give us a UT that the platform deserves.

Oh and please, please, please don't let this be free to play. Please.

so far they have only made them with each new Unreal Engine, so it had been asked quite a bit if a new one was coming due to UE4 coming out, but I hope it's a hell of a lot closer to UT99 than UT3.

I know and it's why at one point I did expect another UT. But I lost hope when they kept saying "we have no plans for UT." lines over and over. That plus their recent track record I really thought we wouldn't see another game for a long, long time.

Right now my only hope is that it's not a F2P cash shop title.

to be fair UT wouldn't work with a cash shop as the thing that made it worth playing was the sheer diversity of player made mods, if anything selling it as a full game with the ability to mod it to the level you could UT99 would actually do more to help them sell UE4 since it would give people a starting point and let them realise how good the engine actually is even under a confined set of tools.

That's a surprise. A good one.

I'm guessing pure digital not Triple-A, though.

I'd be lying if I said I didn't have huge hopes for this. The state of the current shooter genre is pathetic to say the least. Only something with the high octane energy of classic FPS could save us from being stuck in this mire of brown and bloom.

Yes finally! If it's anywhere as good as the initial GoW trilogy I'll be buying

making the game like gears of war was where they screwed over UT, now that they have sold off that franchise they can go back to making UT what it was a fast paced tournament shooter that is a modders paradise.

Amen Belimawr. I miss the UT2004 community immensely. Was an amazing amount of creativity just put out there for all to play with.
