News, and Discord Channel

Been a little while, community has been a quiet lately.

I put that down to a couple of things:

  • Boring builds – no amazing new content for a while
  • Overwatch (which is a good game, no doubt – but no UT in my book)

Still, I’ve seen many new players joining and staying around. We have a community discord (text chat/voice chat), which is basically like IRC and TeamSpeak/Mumble in one.

It’s proving to be a very popular medium for gamers to communicate, and is cross platform (PC/phone/tablet), so very accessible.

Feel free to jump in and say hello, link below.

UT Level Design Contest

From the Unreal Tournament Blog – here

For any mappers out there, or people that have had a passing interest in mapping in the past, it could be a great opportunity to get involved!

Unreal Tournament Level Design Contest

Epic Games is teaming up with Mapcore for their latest level design contest for one of our newest gametypes, “Showdown”.

There are some great prizes and the Unreal Tournament team will vote for their favorite submissions. The results will be shared during a live stream on the Unreal Tournament Twitch channel.

Depending on how close the entries are to release quality, Epic will evaluate the possibility of adding one or more of the winning entries into the Unreal Tournament Marketplace or even the game.

Should this become a reality, Epic will work directly with the level designer(s) just as was done with Captain Migraine for DM-Lea andJayoplus for CTF-Pistola.

New Build 1-4-16

From the Unreal Tournament Official Blog, here

tl;dr,

  • There is a new map – DM-Bio Tower. It is fully meshed, and bring back memories of crazy, silly DM play from UT99. It’s far from being a competitive friendly map, but that’s ok sometimes.
  • Weapons have been tweaked, rockets a little slower, combos a little smaller, but easier to active, flak spread widened. Most in the community seem to like the changes
  • Quick HUD – just under your crosshair, you have access to health, armour, and ammo count. These stats flash red when they are low. I think they are useful, give them a go.
  • Check out the release notes here for full details.

We have another new build of the Unreal Tournament pre-alpha for you to check out and play. We hope you enjoyed the new Chill deathmatch map introduced in the last build. This month we have a little surprise: Bio Tower! It’s a new fun little deathmatch arena with a full visual pass. Get ready for some bio goo craziness!
