    I see. Thank you for providing the source.
    Hopefully, it's not set in stone yet, because I doubt it'll work with hypothetical new UT.
    Edit: additionally, it probably has been asked in the context of ordinary UE4 subscribers. Epic themselves and perhaps "custom licensees" may play by different rules.

    I'd imagine they intend to do it exactly like they say above - I can't see them having one rule for themselves and one for everyone else :/

    Well, "Over time hopefully we can find a more polished approach" + they weren't working on a UT game just a while ago → at release they might have found a more polished approach.

    Nice choice of music, sounds like an original composition that's very UT-esque.

    EDIT: Development starting today. PC/Mac/Linux, "Free". Community-driven development via Epic Forums. Steve Polge is Project Lead / Sr. Programmer.

    I think they're doing it the right way. Having it completely free to play and having alpha builds open to try out will make a better game in the long run.

    Depends on how well they listen. I recall they got a lot of feedback on 2004 and didn't really do much with it after the last patch.

    It probably came down to money budgeted for development back then. They had to balance the cost of working on it with the odds of more people buying the game. This time they're just getting money from those who want to develop content. They probably have an allocated portion of the UE4 sales to use for development now. Since a lot of the income will be from people who don't even play UT they have no reason not to listen this time.

    It could still suck, but I'm thinking it'll be much better. We'll have to see.

    Now very important question rises. If Epic builds the core DM gameplay mechanics then how it is gonna be. Original UT style or more like UT3?

    Epic will be getting feedback from the first line of code.

    Remember Hi-Rez and Tribes Ascend? They pretty much had a similar situation, except they didn't listen to any feedback, made a crap game, then at the end of development life, they did pretty much everything that people suggested, game improved a ton, then they dropped it and focused on SMITE.
    Hopefully Epic will actually listen.
