First Look at Unreal Fortress
4:05 PM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story

BarrysWorld has written up a preview of the first private beta of the Unreal Fortress total conversion for Unreal Tournament. According to the author, the mod's development is progressing very well and already includes 'bot' support. This version of Team Fortress, though different slightly from others, should remind the 'old school' gamers of the original mod for QuakeWorld. Here's a short clip from the preview:

The bot are one of the most anticipated features of UnF, and though they're still at a comparitively early stage, they're very impressive. They'll work out which roles are needed and slip into them - for example, when I was attacking, the bots would choose a defensive class. They're not sheep though - they won't all go armourer (engineer) just because you're attacking as ranger. If you're having a hard time, one might switch class and help you. You can issue orders just like in UT CTF if you want more control.
Read the rest of the article for more on this exciting mod for UT. The team has noted the first version of the UnF should be out "soon," so stay tuned.
