You Can Play The New Unreal Tournament Now!
In case if you missed it, the folks over at Epic Games have published the pre-alpha build of the new Unreal Tournament. At the time of publishing, there are no official servers so if you want to host your own, then there will be a lot of work to do if you want to do that. In this build, you get access to a few maps and a lot of weapons. You also get the ability to play against bots.
However, there are a few caveats here. As this is a super-early version of the game there are going to be a lot of bugs. Additionally, there is a lot of place-holder artwork in the maps that are included. Therefore, this will not be representative of the final version of the game. Additionally, you will also need to sign up for an account at the unreal tournament forums before downloading it.
However, Epic Games have stated that you will be able to use this to give feedback on what you like and don’t like.
At the time of writing, Epic Games have stated that they don’t have any servers live for the pre-alpha version. As such, you may also need to download the UT Launcher.
I’ve had a chance to play with it a bit and so far, I’ve not run into a bug or a glitch yet. When I threw the computer-controlled bots into the mix, it handled them well. With that said, it’s still early days in the development of this game so we never know what we could find.
