New Unreal Tournament 2003 Interview at Planet Unreal
11:30 AM | Jean-Luc Dinsdale | Comment on this story

Tim Sweeney and Cliff “CliffyB” Bleszinski of Epic Games were recently featured in an in-depth interview over at PC Gaming site Planet Unreal regarding their latest venture, the recently-released Unreal Tournament 2003.

The lengthy interview touches on a variety of subjects, from the history of the Unreal game franchise, technical changes to the current version of the game's engine, the future of the franchise, and Epic's support for the mod community, including mods the game developers would love to see from their user community:

• Vehicle mods. The Karma physics support in the engine now is incredibly complete and powerful, but all we had time to put in was the little vehicletest map with a hastily-constructed vehicle. With Karma, you can do arbitrarily complex vehicles with independent suspensions like tanks, buggies, tractor-trailers, go-karts, bulldozers, etc.
• An RTS mod. You could have an above-the-world-looking-down view zoomed out similarly to recent 3D RTS games, having both vehicles and foot soldiers. Gameplay could give the player control over how much detail he wants to get into...you could either give orders to your troops, or go into first-person view and micromanage them.
The highly-anticipated Macintosh port of Unreal Tournament 2003 is being handled in-house by Epic, and is expected to be released by the Christmas season.
