Watch Sketches Turn Into An Unreal Tournament Map

The new Unreal Tournament is being made in front of people in nearly real-time. You’re able to watch design ideas move from concepts into reality. The game’s main new stage, Outpost 23, has come a long way since its artistic sketches, and it’s really fun to watch the transition happen.

  • Never played any UT before, and only played a tiny bit of Quake live, but the level design looks beautiful, and I have wanted to play an arena shooter (where the majority aren’t exclusively the hardcore veterans who know every quirk of every map) for a while now. This was on my radar a while ago, and it’s staying there.
