    The pics, artwork and screenshots are starting to flow in from the Midway/Epic Unreal Championship 2: The Liandri Conflict LAN/press event held in New York City yesterday (11-30-04). There's more goodness to come, but for now, take a look at our UC2 Event Gallery. This gallery includes a large number of never-before-seen screenshots, some high-res, some of the pics we snapped and some great UC2 concept artwork.

    Thanks to Prophetus and TyeFang for attending the event for BeyondUnreal.

    I can't remember exactly, but someone from Epic stated that it is the matter of code optimization. When you have an X-Box you can write the code so it uses all the horsepower it can get down to a single tick of the console's clock... :D On PC we have different configs (and Win slowing down in background ;) ) , so I suppose that's why they had to limit the effects in UT2004... :confused:

    Anyway, looks good, a shame I don't have that green box... But, hey, I'm still voting for that leak! :)

    The concept art look so much better than the average UT0*/UC1 stuff :tup:
    Even though they still have the ugly Egyptian crap - it at least looks better than the former Egypt crap ;)

    It is also because the art direction is a lot more focused now instead of the old mentality that anything goes into unreal.

    Finally all the random ideas are being made into a style that will be unreal only. That is good art direction. Something that last unreal series lacked. Not bad but it lacked.

    Edit// I still do not like the egyptian stuff... but at least it looks cooler.

    I think the Egyptian theme is neat. Kinda a regression from modern mentality to Ancient Egyptian battles in locations that look that way.

    I did used to hate it though...go figure.

    Also, UEngine 2.5X is optimized for the XBox I believe, yay :)

    Nope, it's a Necris.
    The only character from MK (that's been announced (a month or so ago)) is Rayden.

    Why don't they do things like this for the UT-games?

    I'd rather have things like that for the UT series myself.

    I remember the good ol' days when crazy large xbawkes didnt exist and Unreal games were played on PC ;)

    But in all seriousness, it looks pretty good. I cant believe that they're putting the RIPPER in a game for a console and not in the PC games. Also, Flak Cannon is just so unnecessarily extravagant this time around.

    I love this game. If the controls are easy to master, I will definitely be buying an XboX and this game come release time.

    I never thought I'd here myself say this about a fps on a console, but...

    The controls felt great!! :tup:

    I'm writing up my take on the event and game as we speak :)

    it has cool shader and partical effects but it seems to have a lower poly count and lower res textures.

    Yah, trust me when I say that if the controls are similar to how they were at GDc, you won't have any problems picking this up and playing it pretty skillfully in just a few minutes.
