Trailer of Unreal Tournament 3

Trailer of Unreal Tournament 3

Epic Games released this trailer of Unreal Tournament 3, showing the story in the single player mode. It's impossible to not see the similarities with Gears of War, but who would expect otherwise with the same engine - and I'm not complaining, I'm just glad to even see a single player mode.

Couldn't they simply make proper Unreal 3 and not bother with this piece of shit story? Seriously.

well shit story is better then shooting boots for no reason IMO
Looking from that trailer story will be sort of interesting one.

They haven't been able to make a proper UT game since the first one.

i dont understand how he story is going to work. unreal champ 2 on xbox had a story but ultimately it was just the usual bot controlled frag fest with a pinch of "reasoning" behind it. so how will this work, is single player completely seperate from multi, or is it gonna be basically fighting those giant lizards in the multiplayer maps...if so i'd rather it not be there tbh. i'd rather they simply call the single player "practice mode" and get it over with.

if the campaign involving this revenge plot against the lizard people doesnt take place in individual single player levels, with AI and objectives, then its pretty much a shit addition.

i have a feeling it will basically be like champ 2...deathmatches with lizards and cutscenes explaining why you just had to kill 50 of them in 5 mins in a confined multiplayer map.

Is it just me or does it look like sort of a downgrade from Gears of War?

Some things look better, and something look worse =/

"I'm not on a holy war, i just want to kill this bitch"

Lol, break up issues!

I've got something against the bad ass macho types with crappy oneliners Epic is coming up with lately. Looks good though. Wish they cut the bs story and just keep to the tournament thing.

Is it just me or does the main chick sound a lot like Meryl? I don't really care for shooters but may check this out just to hear that sexy voice!

shall i point you toards Lost Odyssey, or The Last Remnant? characters look big because thats the way epic wants them to look, it has nothing to do with the unreal engine. (in case thats what you were refering to)

I think he meant Unreal game series not Unreal engine.

For me it looked like the most generic thing ever.

With a gfx engine thats supposed to be so great it seems like they wouldnt make the entire trailer CG.
Commented on 2007-10-28 22:54:02
I wanna know who actually thinks that looks good, graphically.

Seriously, the art in the game is a joke (the kind of joke we've seen in webcomics for years, even).

The game would look pretty good if it was in color and had WAY less bloom, as it is, it's horrible looking.

arnt all games computer generated...lol

it was in engine anyway. at least from what i could see.

and while epic seems to lack diversity when it comes to art style, technically its looks great. anyone with a brain cell can see that.

It makes me depressed, that it's obviously very good technically, but the graphics are ruined for me with this grey and bloom. I'm a very technical person, I can have fun with just a tech demo for a half an hour at a time, but I can't stand how ugly the art is in UT3 (and Gears, IMO).

nope i just mean unreal games in general, im not dissing them, i just personally dont like big characters with big guns and superfast gameplay with guns that shoot green stuff and crazyness...lol

but the last 'unreal' game i played i think was unreal tornament 2003? i think. well i really enjoyed Lan games of that

i suppose im a man who likes his story in his games :p
and as a lot of people have already said , i also think it will be tiny bits of useless story taking place in multiplayer maps

In-engine but not how it looks in-game when you play. They add all these extra enhancements like better shadows, super-high antialiasing, and other stuff. They did it with Gears Of War too, I hate when developers do this.
Commented on 2007-10-28 23:22:00
Do they REALLY need to put "from the company that brought you Gears of War"? Seriously, like we don't know who they are. Guess it'll be good for those who buy it for the PS3/360.

Amazing graphics. It's UT so I know the gameplay will be good.

They are worlds apart. Gears of War has really blurry environments and can only show a few characters on screen at once.

Lets not get too carried away there sonny. The texture memory limitation on the PS3 alone would suggest otherwise, and Gears has some of the sharpest most detailed textures on any game, while supporting 10-12 unique characters on screen.

In any case, if this doesnt sell well on the PS3 Epic will be all over the 360. They're building a possible disaster with this game on both the PC and the PS3 when meanwhile their 3+ million Gears owners are crying for the last glitches to be fixed in multiplayer.

It will be VERY interesting to see how this sells on both PC and PS3. The time of UT might well be over. It is and has been for me and my friends I know that. If UT3 on multiple systems doesnt do better than Gears on the 360 alone you can bet UT is out and done with for Epic as well.

And yet you absolutely LOVE the darkness and greyness of Killzone2 I bet? Or the various shades of sand in MGS4 tickle your fancy the best? Sorry I have to call them where I see them.

Gears and UT3 are not about eternal sunshine and palmtrees. The art direction doesnt deduct from the fact that the graphics are superb, and I'm sure both games will have colorful environments too.

Sorry to bust your bubble but the game won't look as good as the trailer. GoWs "Mad World" trailer was as good looking but the game was actually worlds appart from that, so will be U3. The graphics DO look good, GoW was the best looking game by far when it actually came out, but they won't look clean and high poly as showed in the trailer.

Well they showcased what U3E was capeable of if you could render the 2 min scene for a few hours on a high end PC but in my oppinion the true strengths of an Engine are it's complexity and physics, it's difficulty to use and it's ability to use the resources and not waste them.

Gears of War is a good game no doubt. But personally I feel like the king of mp is back. This looks like Gears but on steroids.
Plus the story seems at least as interesting as Gears story. Neither is close to a master piece in that area.

I think the game will sell at least 2.5 million considering it's on 3 platforms.

Can't wait to try Gears of War on PC though, it looks to have sharper textures and environments all around just like UT. If you have the PC for it obviously.
