I can't wait to see what the community does with this and I can't wait to get my hands on it afterwards.

Finally a good News.


A Free Moddable Complete game, not a godamned demo with DLC! 

Nice Move Epic!

Free?  I smell micro-transactioned, DLC riddled bait. DANGER!

Taking a % of mod profit is a Free to Play subgenre I had forgotten about.


Players earning for their hard work is good, like in Team Fortress 2.

This is good news. I'm a fan of the Unreal Tournament games and looking forward to playing this new game on my pc/laptop. since i'm sure i doubt it'll come to consoles.

@Garm31 Seems like you didn't watch the stream. The way they're going to make money back from development, is through Modders putting content on the Marketplace. Epic will only take a cut from what they put it up for.

I know. Consoles love the f2p model. On PC there are such things as absolutely free games.
