New Unreal Tournament 2003 Details
8:57 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story

The Game Developers Conference is now fully underway and GameSpot is one of the first sites to bring the latest news from the event about the next-generation first-person shooter Unreal Tournament 2003 (previously known as Unreal Tournament II).

The GameSpot report goes into detail about the new features of Unreal Tournament 2003, quoting Digital Extremes' James Schmalz on a number of topics like included models, revamped gameplay modes, and much more. Here's a clip that discusses the almost RPG-like character improvements:

UT 2003 will have about 50 unique characters with unique 3D models and skins, weapon preferences, and statistics—you'll be able to draft a team of these characters based on your own personal preference. All characters in UT 2003 will have three ability scores—accuracy, tactics, and agility—and over the course of the single-player game, your characters' (and your teammates') ability scores will increase based on their style of play. More aggressive characters that are always on the offensive may get a higher agility score, while more defensive characters that spend a good deal of time providing cover fire for teammates may increase their accuracy.
Check out the two-page article for more info on this game, which is expected to be a summer release on the PC. While no Mac version has yet been announced, it seems likely that the original UT's success on the platform would make it a safe bet for MacSoft. We'll keep you posted on any new information released about the title.
