Air Buccaneers HD In 2012

Rock, Paper, Shotgun points out that Air Buccaneers, the popular UT2004 modification, is getting a remake courtesy of the original developer, Ludocraft, and by way of UDK.

Quote:

Remember the Make Something Unreal price-winner MOD from 2004? AirBuccaneers is a compelling combination of graceful air ballet, fierce pirate-like action and tactical maneuvering in true 3D. It is a classical team deathmatch game with a unique gameplay that lures players to collaborate in the epic and movie-like aerial battles. The game combines the slow-paced suspense of fog-of-war with the adrenalin rush provided by the intense smoke-filled battle of airborne hot air balloons.

The work has started, funds are being raised and the LudoCraft team is preparing for a mighty comeback!

I don't think they had much options:
- Air Buccaneers 2011
- Air Buccaneers 2
- Air Buccaneers: standard-stupid-non-related-but-greatly-sounding-suffix.

They should simply stick to Air Buccaneers.
Tripwire didn't rename Killing Floor either.
