    The first picture sold it for me... I bought the 1999 GOTY edition and Facing Worlds was the best CTF map ever, claiming several hundred hours of my life.

    Downloading this right now! :thumb:

    Edit: not seeing a link in your article - any particular reason for this? Since the game is free, wouldn't it make sense to post a clicky? :)

    UT Clicky

    Looks really nice.
    Recipe for perfect multiplayer game: Redo UT99. Set sniper rifle firing speed to half and we're away. :)

    i hope they add all the weapons and let servers choose what weapons to add ( the blade launching thing from the original UT was awesome )

    that said i cant wait for vehicle combat, instagib matches, and the maps Hyperspace and Morpheus

    I loved UT99, UT2003 and 2K4. Please give Deck 16 map!

    Hope this is as fun as it looks. I started with UT2k4 and loved it. I actually never played UT3 until recently when I got it for almost nothing. Talk about a terrible looking game. Everything maxed and it looks like garbage, maybe if it was released in '07 or something... oh wait it was!

    Signed up with Epic yesterday to get this and downloaded UT overnight. Looks as fun as the old one that I played a few times in the past.
    Will get the LAN team to do likewise and we can have a UT session next week.
    A bit of free fun, even more so than the very limited window that was SW Battlefront.

    I was playing it for a while. They nailed it. It was so good playing a game like that again.
    Unfortunately now I'm just stuck in an Overwatch cycle I can't break free from :(

    Shame I can't seem to get 4K (nVidia DSR) to work. Whenever I change the resolution to 4K button placement goes out the window and I cannot even get out of the menus.

    Other than that it is a lot of fun, the maps looks great, it runs buttery smooth. And, for now, it is free. Let's see where the next few years take us.

    No luck here, it just keeps looping the download. I must have downloaded it at least half-a-dozen times over the weekend.

    Never mind, worse things happen at tea. :)

    Fantastic news - UT is my favourite game of all time!

    I've been playing it with the same group of friends for 16 odd years now and it's still so much fun. The customisability of UT2004 was a huge strength in that you could create maps, music, sounds, voicepacks, characters and so on, and you could play with loads of friends or just a couple of you vs some pretty decent bots.

    There are also thousands of user created maps out there so you can play in pretty much any environment you like. One of my favourite maps is DM-GoatswoodPlay which is a small English village - very pretty and great for Deathmatch. Give it a go if you are a UT fan!

    Now, off to download the new one....

    Oh wow, this sneaked up on me. Have been waiting for ages on a new UT. This is going to be competing for my time along with overwatch and my HTC VIVE.
