Epic has completed work on Unreal Tournament 2003, which heads off to retail shortly after an immensely successful demo won the hearts and splattered the souls of gamers all over the globe. The full game, which ships on three CDs, features the game and its generous serving of 37 levels, along with various tools. These include Maya Personal Learning Edition from Alias|Wavefront, The Karma Authoring Tool, a mod starter kit courtesy of the boys and girls at Epic, and despite it not appearing on the packaging, full Linux support - client and server. Looking outside the box, Epic is promising to continue handing out goodies by way of the Internet, including a standalone server for people who don't own the game - a great way to encourage people to set up servers - and the UDE (Unreal Development Environment) for bedroom programmers. Also promised are a customised version of Gmax (no idea) and the usual array of bonus packs. Plus patches, presumably, which are a necessary evil for this sort of title. UT fans should keep an eye on Epic's Unreal Technology announcement page for various goodies. Related Feature - UT2003 patched
