Would be pretty funny if it was an xbox one exclusive.

#5 Edited by Murderstyle75 (4167 posts) -

@topgunmv:

Very Doubtful. This series strives on the PC and the PS3 got better UT3 support then the Xbox 360.

Xbox gamers also have not been kind enough to the series in the past to make an exclusive even remotely worthwhile.

Free 2 Play.

Almost assuredly.

Let's just hope it's as good as UT 2K4.

#8 Posted by aroxx_ab (10044 posts) -

BAH, they should just had done another normal Unreal game, no Tournament :(

#9 Posted by Idontremember (927 posts) -

Well, they need a game to showcase UE4, just like Gears of War was for UE3.

The advantage with the new unreal is that it won't be exclusive to a MS console, so they can go all in on PC.

I'm expecting some uber settings on that will bring down a quad sli 780ti.

I don't know where Epic is going with this one. You simply can't have UT/Quake style FPSs on consoles. Maybe Epic is going for a F2P PC exclusive; if done well, it could be quite good. They are doing Fortnite after all.

Until the game is PC centric , I'm not excited . They can port it to consoles but it should be PC game primarily . Otherwise it won't be UT we all loved back in the day .

while I enjoyed the game in the past, I've little doubt there's commercial potential for the game anymore unless they make a tremendous effort to revitalize the franchise, otherwise they're just going to pander to a smaller nostalgia crowd

#14 Edited by flashn00b (2926 posts) -

Personally, i think the next UT should make an effort to bring back the things that made UT2004 great, along with making the rocket jump a thing.

Hope is not something like quake live.

Yeah I'd say so.

But cool! Got good memories from UT 2004 back in high school with my mates.

Hopefully it is like Titanfall.. MP only so they focus more there.

Tribes: Ascend shows you could do F2P for this type of game pretty successfully, and since Epic is a big company, they could definitely improve upon the foundation that game laid out.

Have you ever played an Unreal Tournament game? They are all multiplayer focused, the singleplayer is just multiplayer with bots. And all UT's destroy Titanfall. I wish Titanfall was more like UT...

With that being said, I too hope it's more like UT2004 as some of you have said. I had so much fun with that game and played it for years after it was released. It had an incredibly strong community for a very long time too. I wish that UT3 had been as successful. I liked UT3 but unfortunately not everyone felt quite the same way (maybe it's release on consoles had something to do with it) as the community was pretty much dead within a year of its release.

#45 Posted by osan0 (12739 posts) -

i want lots n lots of assault levels. loved those in UT and UT2004 (i think they were missing from UT3 and UT2003).

new unreal engine though...time for epic to show something to flex its muscles.

itll probabl be multiplat though. epic will want to show potential customers how easy it is to get content running on lots of different devices.

i wouldnt be surprised if its f2p either. actually having it f2p and allowing anyone to make maps for it would be a great way for epic to get feedback on the engine and tools.
