Multi-player -- Deathmatch, team DM, Last man standing and CTF, plus a character driven (ala Team Fortress) new mode of play.


no co-op

what a way to ruin a perfectly good game :(

Well, it's possible that because they're including lots of scripted events, that Co-op is more trouble than it's worth....

I know what you mean, I was hoping it'd be in there too. Still, sounds like a pretty good list of modes.

I wish they wouldn't put so many in. Takes attention away from single player.

When I saw that Legend included CTF in the list of UT gametypes, that made my day :D

Capture's gonna have some work to do soon...

I hear ya, Hellscrag. But, I'm really glad to see it in there. Now the next big bit of news is whether or not some sort of personal transportation device (i.e. grapple, beamer or x-loc) will be included.

I don't including those gametypes will be too terribly time consuming. Won't some of the basic code be in place for it already? Plus, the fact that it's Legend doing it. They've done some nice work in the past.

more multiplayer modes = better in my opinion :)

I was interested to note that unreal 2 was intending to capture the feel of UT's assault mode, yet there is no assault multiplayer.

Multiplayer lasts longer than single player. Just look at Quake2, waaaay more people played multiplayer than single player. I didnt even have a net connection and I spent 95%+ of my time doing multiplayer (with bots). Anyways, it doesnt take that much time to add multiplayer really, add a few good levels and you're sorted

My point being that Unreal Warfare is going to be the big multiplayer game, thus Legend should channel their attention into the single player.

Remember, U2 is supposed to be a single player game, and lasting longer or not, multiplayer should be secondary.

kick!

i think they should make it bigger and longer, they said 10HRS is that right? well i think if it's only going to take that long to play it then that sucks (but i want it now anyway!!!)

i'm not much for UT or q,q2,q3a or a lot of other games (although i have them all) because there is nothing like playing the old unreal (i'm a diehard, what can i say), i just wish i oculd get UED2 to be able to edit unreal maps and then still be able to play em in unreal, i've tried and it won't work! =(
