Unreal Tournament 2007 to arrive in 2006

Fri Jun 24 2005, 01:46
WE SPOKE with Mark Rein, VP of Epic, and the nice lad informed us that the highly anticipated sequel for Unreal Tournament 2007 can be expected in 2006.

Rein confirmed that Epic won't be doing its Xbox 360 game as a launch title, as the company tried that elsewhere and burned itself.

Epic says it's taking its time as it wants to do the great game with great graphics for the Xbox 360. We saw some snippets of Unreal Tournament 2007 in action and it just looks astonishing.

We saw the game up and running on the latest Nvidia 7800 GTX hardware and Mark could not hide his excitement over the very fast Nvidia product. It runs Unreal Tournament 2007 significantly faster than the Geforce 6800 generation of cards.

Unreal Engine 3 is one of the best-looking engines supporting some great graphic outputs, including Shader Model 3.0 and HDR - High Dynamic Range. And we like seeing them in action in a rather warm hangar, where Nvidia made a nice biker's party in sweltering Paris.

Mark was chopping some guys into smaller pieces when he demonstrated the game, while Tim Sweeney was doing the same a few thousands miles away, in a city called San Francisco in the US.

The in-game movies, characters, action looked great and we are looking forward to seeing it sooner rather than better. µ
