    More details on the next Unreal Engine 3 powered Unreal Tournament game have surfaced, taken from the May 2005 issue of Computer Gaming World magazine.

    If you missed our earlier report on the details of UT "Envy" that are emerging (including details of the massive new "Conquest" gametype), you can click here to view it.

    We've also posted four screenshots from the article. Links can be found at the bottom of the list below...


    General

    "Envy" is Epic's code name for the next UT.
    Expect UT2004's "bounciness" to be toned down in the next
    UT.
    The double-jump is back.
    It is possible that "Envy" will not be called "Unreal
    Tournament 2006" or "Unreal Tournament 2007".


    Vehicles

    Nine 'Axon' vehicles taken from UT2004: ECE

    The Scorpion buggy now comes with an XMP-style rocket booster, as
    well as an 'eject' button which turns it into a self-destructing bomb.
    Scorpion now features Rocket Launchers instead of UT2004's energy
    web.
    Goliath tank may feature destructable treads this time around.


    Nine new Necris vehicles


    Weapons

    Rocket Launcher
    Flak Cannon
    Redeemer
    Link Gun
    Shock Rifle
    AVRiL
    Sniper Rifle
    Dual Enforcers
    Stinger (from Unreal 1 and Unreal Championship 2, replaces the Minigun)
    Canister Gun (houses Grenade Launcher, Mine Layer, Bio Rifle)


    Teams

    Nakhti (Egyptians from UC2)
    Necris
    Juggernauts
    The Corrupt
    Iron Guard
    Krall
    Jacob's Team (Marines?)
    "Player's Team" (Unnamed)


    Quotes

    "Actually, we don't think 2K4 was very successful [...] It
    wasn't a bad game... I just wish it could have been a better game than
    it was." - Steve Polge
    "We've paid [...] a lot of attention to what the guys in the
    community are saying, and we take that feedback to heart." -
    Jim Brown
    "The original Unreal Tournament was on the threshold of being
    a great game. If we had done 2K4 without having to feel kind of in the
    box of what we had started in 2K3, I think it would have been a much better
    game than it was." - Steve Polge
    "[In UT2004] you miss the feeling you get from being in someone's
    face and fighting with them." - Jeff Morris

    woah!

    Buggy looks very nice, though I think we will be hearing people say the 'H' word a few times.

    The Tank.... I was expecting something bigger but its hard to tell size ratio to a player from that pic. The Turret looks a lot nicer too. In fact the turret reminds me of the tank from TRON, of course the tank from TRON had much higher poly count.

    Oh, and I bet 2 lemon flavoured cookies it will be called UT3

    The best thing they can do is ditch the future sports/yearly naming crap and call it Unreal Tournament 3. Nothing more, no stupid tag-lines, just UT3 :).

    Also the '3' would match the Engine Version, as the oringal game was just UT (Engine v1)

    UT2003/4 was the v2 engine.... makes sense that this can be called UT3 as the third generation of the game.

    I'm not sure what the point would be in having destructible treads on the Goliath (assuming it's anything like the 200x version). It's already absurdly slow.

    Yeah, this makes me feel special inside much like the original UT did. Now focus on the gameplay and stuff more than the last 2 incarnations, and i'll be playing it for ages like UT99 :D

    year 2007 please :)

    plus we are liking 2004 quite nicely, so you can milk that title for a while and get the job done on UT1billion or whatever.

    Aren't the 'Krall' the mercs used by the Skaarj in Unreal ?

    Besides ... anyone that can count ought to know it should be named : UT 4 ... :p
    Altough I still think it's a joke and that UT2k4 is the last UT we'll ever see.

    No Skaarj... :( And again I'll be forced to make a nanotrans to new body... :p Krall presumably... :D

    As for the weaponry - it's looking good to me, I'll miss the LG (same as I hated it after switching from Ut99 to 2003... ;) ); the Cannister Gun is looking pretty spooky to me ( :biorifle: + GL + ML = ?!) and it's a shame that there will be no minigun (stinger is not bad, but I have bad memories of it from U1... :rolleyes: ).

    And year 2007 is so far ahead... *sigh*

    UT3.5 ;) As UT was engine 1, 2003 was engine 2, and 2004 was engine 2.5 right? So....bah call it waht you like :p

    Why is it a joke? This is confirmed in development right? So we will see another UT.
