UT 2003 video

By Demiurg
Mar 18, 2002
  1. Tiscali Games has posted a 5 min/55 mb wmv-video with footage from the upcoming UT 2003: http://games.tiscali.cz/clanek/patche.asp?id=3103

    I was particularly impressed by the collision detection - bodies sliding down stairs convincingly step by step for example. Nice.

    ok, this link should work cause you don't have to pass the ad page to get to the news page.
    anyway, if it should not work, just go to pc.ign.com and see the news. ;)

    Been looking forward to seeing stuff running using Epic's new engine. Downloading it now. If I am not speechless afterwards I'll edit and give you my impressions ;)

    UPDATE:

    Well with it being that classic lets use a video camera to record a monitor I was a little disappointed when the file began to play.
    What I wasn't disappointed with was how the game looked. Halo on the Xbox looked out of this world (and it will look that way when it comes to the PC ;) ) but UT2 looks as good, if not better. Actually I would go as far as saying it looks better. I particularly liked the demo section of the game where the developer shows off the collision detection. He shoots this dummy character from the top of a tower and it falls down the and hits off lots of sections. They way all the appendages move and change direction with each impact is totally convincing. Another brilliant section of the 5 minute+ movie is the corpses on a set of stairs. No longer will you have to put up with a corpse with half its body stuck into a slope or set of stairs, these sit on top of them and when shot they roll further down. If you have the bandwidth I recommend having a look. First though, if you haven't already, take a look at some screen shots as some parts of the video don't do the graphical beauty of the characters and environment justice (but I put this down to the whole video camera recording a monitor issue).

    Overall I have played UT through the single player vs bots game and it was fun but I have never really taken to the online play. But with the release of this stunning Epic (pun intended) I think I owe it to myself to try this one out!!!

    :grinthumb

    In fact it was so good that I am going to make sure every gamer that comes into the gaming forum sees it.
    I'm going to make it sticky!

    woah! I like it!

    like demiurg said, there are some really impressive scenes where bodies are shot down the stairs, and move a LOT more realistically than in current FPS games....

    I wish I had a fast connection to get that, I better wait for the demo that should be in the 100mb range instead of downloading the movie. :(

    After watching it a third time I just have to comment that the guy playing in the first section of ingame play really isn't very coordinated as he manages to fall off the level he gets the lift up to twice in a row at least!!!!

    Hehe. Try to be coordinated while some dude pushes you away from the screen with a videocamera in his hands. :D

    Well, I try to stay away from gaming because it tends to affect my college grades, which I just can't have. Man, I've been out of gaming for a while. The video was absolutely amazing and I even liked the song they were playing!

    I might have to buy this one and see what all the hype is about. No, must stay focused on school!!! Can't give in to temptation, ahhhh, it's just too much!!! Must play more games!!!

    I'll tell you what's wrong with quicktime......

    Now DivX is a different story.. For some reason no comapnies want to embrace it though.
