UT2004 Mod Air Buccaneers Updated
7:56 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story

Another creative modification for Unreal Tournament 2004 called Air Buccaneers has been recently updated. This total conversion brings the action of UT2004 off the ground and into the realm of hot air balloons and cannons.

The newest 4.1 version fixes a number of issues with the 4.0 release and is a recommended download for those who have played the mod. For more about Air Buccaneers, here's a clip from their site:

[Air Buccaneers] contains a new multiplayer game type with hot air balloons, cannons, airmines and various other pseudo ancient gadgets. The game is a compelling combination of graceful air ballet, fierce pirate-like action and 3D tactical manouvering. AirBuccaneers is targeted for novice 3D gamers, but offers plenty of challenge for veteran team players as well.

The game is designed for Internet/LAN multiplayer games but can be also practiced offline by using bots as opponents.

The game contains:

  • New multiplayer type containing intense and strategic hot air balloon fights
  • New player models, weapons, graphics and sounds to complete the unique atmosphere
  • Seven maps with different game types: HarbourRain (Domination), Harbour (Treasure Hunt), LakeInari (Team DeathMatch), Louhenkota (Moving Domination), OldForest (Team DeathMatch), Ruins (Team DeathMatch), Swamp (Treasure Hunt) and Tower (Domination)
  • Original and highly unique content with special thematic atmosphere
  • Genre mix (airwar, tactical vehicle ops and "sea" battles)
  • Simple control interface (action button, jump, walk, strafe, turn, throw weapon", F1 for stats)
  • The download for Air Buccaneers weighs in at nearly 170MB, so if you have the broadband to give the mod a try, head over to their site now.
