Unreal ‘Free’ To Devs, Unreal Tournament Free To All

Even the tallest of titans couldn't stand against the tide of free game-making for long. With so many developers turning to Unity to make their own games, and Unity's capabilities improving rapidly, Ye Olde Unreal Engine was starting to look like something of a dinosaur despite being the go-to framework for a great many blockbuster action titles. And now it, too, is free, albeit with…

Easy Access To Unreal Tournament’s Weekly Builds

As has been previously documented, the prospect of a new Unreal Tournament game fills me with joy. It's a sort of violent, twitch-shooting, wall-dodging, gib-splattering joy but I take what I can get. Development continues apace, though naturally not nearly as fast as I'd like, with weekly livestreamed updates. There's new builds of the game every Friday and still radical changes being made to even…

Unreal Tournament 2014 Playable, Free To All

Want to play the new Unreal Tournament for free, right this very second? Cor blimey and OMG you totes can! Hero of the people 'raxxy' on the Unreal Forums is compiling Epic's builds and releasing them as small, playable packages that anyone can run, with multiple updates per week. The maps are untextured, the weapons unbalanced, and things change rapidly as everything's still "pre-alpha" but it's playable…

Epic Team Deathmatch: New Unreal Tournament Video

I know how game development works. I know you aim to have something playable as quickly as possible, and then test, iterate and repeat for potentially years. That doesn't stop me being reflexively impressed that Epic are already playing team deathmatch in the new, community-driven Unreal Tournament. They've got all the weapons in, there's a couple of new maps, and heck it already looks pretty…

Unreal Tournament’s Livestreams Are Exciting For Fans/Me

It would be fair to say I was pleased to hear that Epic were working on a new Unreal Tournament. "Fair to say" in that nothing has ever been more true and "pleased" in that I danced around my room. The 2004 edition is a little over ten years old and still easily one of the finest first-person shooters ever made. From weapon balance to…

The First Unreal Tournament 2014 Play Session Ever

Ever. Ever! Everrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr. If you were at all doubting Epic's plan to resurrect Unreal Tournament as an openly developed, entirely free (user-driven mod/map marketplace aside) enterprise, doubt no more. There's a game now, and it has guns and big, gray texture-less cubes and everything else all videogames have. You can see it in sorta-action below.

Feature: Unreal or Impossible

Interview: How Will Unreal Tournament 2014 Work? Can It?

A new Unreal Tournament is happening. Fiiiiiiinally! It feels like it's been eons since the decent-ish Unreal Tournament III brought hoverboards to a shock rifle fight, but Unreal Tournament 2014 is coming to the rescue. This one, though, stands to be a massive departure from previous entries in the arena shooter pioneer series. Epic is keeping its team lean and developing the entire game -…

Mod Is Real: Unreal Tournament 2014 Announced, Free

Update: It's Unreal Tournament 2014, an entirely free sequel. Not free-to-play. No microtransactions whatsoever, apparently. Epic will make money by taking cuts from a user-driven mod marketplace. The game is extremely early, and Epic plans to develop it alongside fans. Original: Epic is about to announce something involving Unreal Tournament. Normally that would mean I'd be typing at you live from some extravagant Epic-rented volcano yacht in the Baltic…
