Unreal Tournament is Coming Back and It Will be Free

Epic Games announced today via Twitch that Unreal Tournament is coming back and will be completely free. It will be developed for Linux, Mac, and Windows, moddable, and developed collaboratively with fans.

And that is free, not free to play.

"Free means free — no microtransactions," Epic Games confirmed. "Just free." For good measure, they tweeted it once more.

As for developing collaboratively, players and development students can start their input today in Epic's forums.

"Our first development goal is to get a basic version of Unreal Tournament deathmatch up and running to provide a basis for iteration and further development," Project lead Steve Polge said. "If you’re a member of the UE4 community, you can participate or just follow our progress on the live GitHub fork. You can also get started extending or modding the code as it becomes functional." 

"Players will be able to make their voice heard, and participate meaningfully in setting the direction of development," he continued. "We will release playable alpha versions and use those to get hands-on feedback from players as well."

Anyone here excited about the return of Unreal Tournament?

Now this is a serious nostalgia rush. I could never have enough of headshoting people with a sniper. That mindless fun was a great stress relief. Great news.

www.quakelive.com . Quake Live did this 3+ years ago, free online Quake 3 play through your web browser. Free.

I *loved* when you cranked all your graphical settings up to "MAX", UT2004 shouted,

"HOLY SHIT-SHIT-SHIT-hit-hit-it-it!"
  Superastic: This. Even though the menu was inferior to that of UT…

Seriously excited about this! I Spent countless hours with UT2004 and original (UT3, maybe 20-ish hours according to Steam) and I'm craving for a brand new arena shooter.
