A feature story in the latest Official Xbox Magazine has revealed some new details about Epic Games'
upcoming Unreal Tournament 3
as well as some hype-tacular words by lead designer Steven Polge. Additions to the game include:
- Four-player co-op and two-player split-screen in the single-player campaign
- 18 vehicles and five types of turrets
Polge also made a few claims sure to be cited in any brouhaha concerning the shooter. Referencing the Great Keyboard & Mouse vs. Controller Debate
, the designer claimed that UT3's
controls are so good that half of the staff prefer the Xbox 360 version.
Also noted were the improvements in Unreal Engine 3
, as exemplified by contrasting the game to previous Epic title Gears of War
. Polge said that UT3
on crack. Cover is for wimps!" You hear that, gamers who bought his company's previous Xbox 360 title? You're a bunch of wimps! (Until Gears of War 2
is announced, of course.)
