There is an official (another) facebook page of unreal tournament that was created somewhere around march the 1st, doesn't mean the new pc game will be that, who knows maybe epic (cliff) just opened it to gauge some interest or something somewhere down the future/far future.
That new UE4 demo was a "medieval fantasy" style demo, and they can't have failed to notice how well Diablo III, a PC-only, online only game did. I'm not saying they're building their own Diablo III, but honestly, I hope it's something new for Epic. I think another Unreal Tournament is not going to be very well received at this time.
this is largely correct, though I think the level design varied wildly from one designer to another. levels like the sunspire were pretty much just a boring slog through a dull series of copy-pasted areas, but I recall maps like bluff eversmoking with great affection.
There's no point to making it exclusive unless it's an MMO or they are planing something so incredibly graphics intensive, it can't be dumbed down without compromising the gameplay or something. What that would be I have no idea. I don't think a new UT game would fair well. The last one bombed. A new sp Unreal would be awesome ! But that wouldn't make sense to keep it PC exclusive.
But that's like the first 10 minutes + another 10 to get to the infamous segment designed by Cliffy B with the hallway. I can't remember a single outstanding moment after that and I played the game just 3 months ago.
They need to make the Samaritan concept into a full fledged game.
Unreal Tournament's been done, there's nothing more they can do to it but add prettier gfx, let's get some new and interesting IP please rather than more rehashes.
