Apple Looks At Unreal Tournament 2003
9:06 AM | Johan HansÚn | Comment on this story

Apple has posted a new addition to their gaming section. This time they look at Unreal Torunament 2003, the highly-awaited first-person shooter developed by Digital Extremes in collaboration with Epic Games. In the article they speak with Mark Rein, Vice-President of Epic Games, letting him give his view of the game. Unreal Tournament 2003 offers a more sport-oriented gameplay than most other action games out there. It does not offer a story-driven single-player mode, but rather a ladder-driven championship challenge. The idea is the same as in the original Unreal Tournament, but this time both gameplay and graphics has been highly refined.

From the article:

Rein backs up this statement with some hard data: "The characters in UT were (comprised of) maybe 800 polygons," he explains, "and the characters in UT2K3 are 3,000 to 3,500 polygons. The world environments are 100 to 200 times more detailed in terms of polygons."
To read the whole article, head over to Apple's game section. If you are interested in taking the game for a spin, you can download the demo from or, if you are an IMG Pro subscriber, from the Hot Downloads section of IMG Pro. The Macintosh version of Unreal Tournament 2003 will ship from MacSoft on June 11 and it is already available for preorder at the IMG Store. Be sure to reserve your copy today!
