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.

Those are apparently clips from the first Unreal Tournament 2014 match ever. It's, um, barely even a game yet, but what do you expect from something that's been in active development for under a month? So there you go. Unreal Tournament 2014 will have a shock rifle. Hurrah.

For real, though, it's good to see Epic following through on its promise of showing super early rough draft stuff to the community. Granted, this was still an edited video - not, say, a live stream of development or anything like that - but it's something. It's a decent starting point, at least. Hopefully we'll see more as time goes on, presumably when there's something for fans to be involved with.

Until then, I guess we'll just have to be patient. Need some reading material to keep you company? Perhaps my Unreal Tournament 2014 interview with Epic will suffice.
