Unreal Tournament 2?
10:40 AM | Eddie Park | Comment on this story
The January issue of French gaming mag Joystick contains a surprise feature on a title many gamers have been dreaming about for quite a while: Unreal Tournament 2. The four-page article, scans of which are available at Planet Unreal, contains a wealth of information and screenshots about this supposedly upcoming title.
Though the article is written in French, some enterprising readers were kind enough to translate the highlights of the article into English. Besides the usual graphic and skeletal animation enhancements that usually accompany a sequel of the first-person shooter variety, here's a short list of some of the more controversial features:
Other new features listed include new maps, new races, and the ability to select and command one's own team in single-player games. The full list of translated features is available at Voodoo Extreme.
- There will be vehicles to drive.
- All weapons have been modified, no more razorjack and biorifle. Secondary fire mode will be there.
- No more ammo packs, armor and medpacks. Replaced by recharge platforms: one for heath, one for armor, and one for weapons. You will be recharged progressively while standing on the platform.
- You will respawn with all weapons (except for two special ones) and be packed with ammo.
While the rumor is interesting, bear in mind that nothing is official. As far as we know, none of the companies associated with the Unreal series has stepped forward to confirm the development of UT2. Some interesting speculation by readers at Voodoo Extreme points to UT2 being a possible port of Unreal Championship, a game currently in development for the Xbox.
