Unreal Tournament 2003 Preview
6:00 AM | Daniel Krechmer | Comment on this story

MGON, Media and Games Online Network, has just posted its preview of an internal beta build of Unreal Tournament 2003. The article discusses the improved AI, some of the different multiplayer modes, and it waxes eloquently over the new sports aspects of the single player game.

Here's an excerpt from the article:

All the favourite game modes will be back but with a more team emphasis except for of course deathmatch. Capture the flag; capture the points as well as many others are definately going to be in the final product and a new game mode like speedball will be included at this stage. UT 2003 is being designed as a team based game and it shows. To be successful in the game, teams will have to stick together and help each other out. Having a team full of individuals will not win the game. The single player mode of the game is where the sports element is really going to shine. Players will have to construct a team from players available. You canít just pick a team and run with it, you have to build it up slowly depending on the cash you have on hand and to win money you need to win championships and leagues. To build the team, players can choose to trade or buy players and just like leagues such as the NFL and NHL, there are star players which will give the team a massive boost but will also cost a pretty penny.
The Unreal Engine is being developed by Epic Games, and Unreal Tournament 2003 is being developed by Digital Extremes. It is not yet announced for the Macintosh.
