Today, the announcement was made regarding the next installment of Unreal Tournament. Prior to this, the last official word on the game was that there was no game in development. And at the time, we guess that was true. But, today marks a new chapter in the long running FPS series.
A few notable things that we have learned so far:
- The game is going to be developed in a very open platform – “as a collaboration between Epic, UT fans and UE4 developers”.
- There is going to be a serious push for easily accessable user created content. We assume (or hope it is) something akin to the Steam Workshop
- Once the game is completed, it will be totally FREE – not “Free to Play”.
- Fans of the series have been given a chance to participate in the future of the game, all you need to do is sign up at https://www.unrealengine.com/register
