Unreal Tournament Has Been Updated Again, Here's Another Look On Linux

By - | Views: 10,384
The new Unreal Tournament has been updated again, and it's sporting a fresh coat of paint on the main menu, amongst other changes.

You can download it here, but you need to be logged in.

New video of me playing terribly below, but this time I played on the gorgeous map:

Apologies for the top and bottom being a little cut off, it helps if I set my recorder to the whole screen and not a window-sized portion, oops.
Ps. I didn't choose the thumbnail for the video, hilarious it decided to capture me stepping in my own goo.

What's changed?
- Updated sniper rifle looks
- The main menu is a lot nicer now
- Hub interface for finding and making games has been revamped
- New voice overs
- Networking improvements
- And more, see their full post on it for the scoop!

They still aren't including even a basic launcher for Linux, so you can simply make a desktop file with contents like this:
Quote#!/bin/bash
cd '/home/*YOUR USERNAME HERE*/Downloads/games/UT/LinuxNoEditor/Engine/Binaries/Linux/'
./UE4-Linux-Test UnrealTournament

Save that to a text file on your desktop (or wherever), set it as executable and then you can launch it quickly without resorting to the terminal each time. Obviously you need to change it to where you downloaded and extracted the download. I'm sure there's a better way of doing the above, but it works fine for me. It's certainly nicer than remembering the command to launch it each time. Article taken from GamingOnLinux.com.

I'd just put it in opt (as the PKGBUILD for ArchLinux does too)

Yay I can finally actually view the site logged in! This game was an enormous chunk of my childhood (2k3/4), so I'm really excited to get playing!

I'm very interested in this as I played competitive UT99 and 2k4 more than a decade ago. Right now I only have a laptop as I'm always on the move.

How is performance on lower-end systems? Does anyone know? I'm tempted to install to see.

In the previous video gamę looked awful, but know it became beautiful :)

I start to think that it will be must to have for fast fps lovers, and that's great :)

Got it installed and i'm thoroughly enjoying the direction it's going.

NB: Just out of curiosity, is anyone else experiencing lower detail graphics despite the resolution and detail settings being maxed? Running the game with OpenGL 4 doesn't seem to make a difference. (Using a GTX 780 with the NVIDIA 355.06 Prop. Driver)

Not that great I don't think. I have a GTX 760, i7, and 8gb of ram and I can barely stay around 25fps on the detailed map outpost23 at minimum graphics settings.
However, most maps have low detail right now, so you could probably get decent performance for the time being on most maps, until they start finalizing them.

Even with my high end i5, 16GB RAM and a 970 it stutters at the start of every game, but once you get going it's a lot smoother.

Is it already possible to compile it on linux?
