Epic Games is making a new Unreal Tournament game, they announced today on their livestream. It will be developed in collaboration with fans, and it will be free.
That’s not free-to-play, Epic promises. Free. No microtransactions here — Epic’s cut will come from the community marketplace, where fans can sell what they make in the new Unreal Tournament, and Epic will take a cut.
“We’re planning on doing it in close collaboration with you, the community,” Epic’s Steve Polge said on stream.
It will be out for Linux, PC, and Mac. There’s no game just yet — when Epic says they’re making it with fans, they really mean that they’re making it with fans.
“We’re basically starting today,” said Epic’s David Spalinski.
Anyone interested in working on the game can sign up and participate on the Unreal website.
