Midway announces Unreal Tournament 2007

Filed under
Gaming

Midway Games today took the wraps off Unreal Tournament 2007, the successor to the highly praised Unreal Tournament 2004. Like all previous Unreal games, UT2007 is being developed by North Carolina-based Epic Games. It will be based on the developer's much-ballyhooed Unreal 3 engine and will be released for the PC in 2006.

"UT2007 will be a major evolution for the Unreal series. Fans will be blown away by the next-generation gameplay, modifiability and visuals that Epic's Unreal Engine 3 technology will bring to the franchise," said Steve Allison, Midway's chief marketing officer. The game will be viewable by the public at Midway's booth at E3 next week.

Unreal Tournament 2007 will once again feature the sci-fi action that has made the series popular. According to Epic president Mike Capps (a video with whom is available below), UT 2007 will "be a mix of UT 2004 and the original [Unreal Tournament from 1999]." Though it will likely not feature UT 2004's less-than-popular domination mode, the game will sport deathmatch, team deathmatch, onslaught, assault, capture the flag, and one-on-one duels. The game will also sport an all-new mode, conquest, which will feature a new style of gameplay, according to Epic.

How To Get Started With The Ubuntu Linux Distro

The Linux operating system has evolved from a niche audience to widespread popularity since its creation in the mid 1990s, and with good reason. Once upon a time, that installation process was a challenge, even for those who had plenty of experience with such tasks. The modern day Linux, however, has come a very long way. To that end, the installation of most Linux distributions is about as easy as installing an application. If you can install Microsoft Office or Adobe Photoshop, you can install Linux. Here, we'll walk you through the process of installing Ubuntu Linux 17.04, which is widely considered one of the most user-friendly distributions. (A distribution is a variation of Linux, and there are hundreds and hundreds to choose from.) Read more

  • Mesa 17.2.4 Graphics Stack Lands for Ubuntu 16.04 LTS and Ubuntu 17.10 Gamers
    Canonical's Timo Aaltonen reports on the availability of the Mesa 17.2.4 open-source graphics drivers stack on the X-SWAT updates PPA for Ubuntu 16.04 LTS and Ubuntu 17.10 systems. Ubuntu systems have always lagged behind the development of the Mesa 3D Graphics Library, the Linux graphics stack containing open-source drivers for Intel, AMD Radeon, and Nvidia GPUs, but they usually catch up with it through a specially crafted PPA (Personal Package Archive) repository that can be easily installed by users.
