UT2004 Not to Play With UT2003?
8:07 AM | Johan HansÚn | Comment on this story

In a post on the BeyondUnreal forums, it has been revealed that the sport-themed first person shooter Unreal Tournament 2004 won't be network compatible with the previous game in the series, Unreal Tournament 2003, as was previously intended.

From the post:

Networking won't work between UT2003 and UT2004. We had initially planned to support that, but the network code has changed so much in order to reduce bandwidth, support vehicles, and increase performance, that we couldn't keep the two games network-compatible.
To read the full discussion on this, follow the link provided below.

Unreal Tournament 2004 is currently scheduled to be released in february for both PC and Mac. The Macintosh version will be published by MacSoft while the PC version will be handled by Atari. You can pre-order Unreal Tournament 2004 for Mac from the IMG Store for $39.95 ($37.95 for MacGames CD/IMG Pro Subscribers).
