Unreal Tournament: Game Of The Year Edition Dow...
With a budget of $2 million, using 350,000 lines of C++ and UnrealScript, Unreal Tournament took around a year and a half to develop. When Unreal (the first installment of the Unreal series) was released in May 1998, it was well received by the press. However, it soon became apparent that the quality of the network code used for multiplayer matches was hampering the game's further success. In the months following Unreal's release, improving the game's multiplayer part became the top priority of the development team. Epic Games started considering an official expansion pack intended to improve the network code while also featuring new maps and other gameplay elements.

Lead designer Cliff Bleszinski credited much of the game's success to its community. As he said in the November 2001 issue of Maximum PC, "Unreal Tournament would not have sold nearly two million copies if it did not have support from the community... We ship the very same tools that we used to build the game, and folks use these tools to realize their own visions of first-person action". Like Unreal, Unreal Tournament is designed to be easily programmable and highly modularized. Through its scripting environment UnrealScript and level editor UnrealEd, developers are able to modify easily most parts of the game to both manipulate default game behavior and to supplement the game with their own mods. These range from slight changes on some aspects of gameplay (such as map voting) to total conversions. One modification, ChaosUT, became popular enough that it was included with the 'Game of the Year' edition of the game, while Tactical Ops: Assault on Terror was released as a stand-alone retail product.
On August 10, 2000, the Game of the Year Edition was announced. This version was advertised with the original game being packed with the latest updates, the first three Bonus Packs and the mods Rocket Arena: UT, Chaos: UT and Tactical Ops. Of all these features, only Tactical Ops didn't made it into the pack, due to negotiations starting too late, although it would later be released as a standalone game by Infogrames called Tactical Ops: Assault on Terror. Unreal Tournament: Game of the Year Edition was eventually released on October 27, 2000. This has been the edition that was included in every compilation launched since then, with the sole exception of the mods. Preordering this edition at seleted stores would also come with bonus: BestBuy had the exclusive level DM-Chronos, while Babbage contained CTF-Baranco by Rogelio Olguin, and CompUSA had AS-Bridge.
As apologies go, the 1999-released Unreal Tournament was probably the most sincere and gratifying gesture any gamer could have received after being tortured by the poorly implemented multiplayer in Epic's original Unreal. Cynics were actually ready to damn its arrival, incredulous to the idea of a retail multiplayer-oriented FPS shipping without any kind of single-player campaign. But it ended up being universally praised, outclassing id Software favorite for the holiday season, Quake 3. The latter game ultimately won in sales and licensing deals, although the battle was fierce. Three years later, Unreal Tournament 2003 is here and this time without an id challenger around to steal its time in the limelight.

Unreal Tournament 3 is a video game from the genre of shooting created by the Digital Extremes and Epic Games. The second edition in the series of Unreal games, it was the first-ever which was launched by GT Interactive in 1999 for Microsoft Windows and later launched for the PS2 as well as Dreamcast by the Infrogames back in 2000 and 2001.
The players have to compete with each other in a sequence of different types of marches with the basic aim of killing the rivals. The PC edition of this game is supportive of multiplayer mode or more than a regional area network. A lot of extension packs were released for free, some of which were piled by a 2000 relaunch of Unreal Tournament: Game of the year edition.
This game is powered by Unreal Engine, and it received a lot of critical acclamation, with critics from all over the world appreciating the graphics, gameplay, and design level. Though the ports of the console of the game were praised for having restrictions. The game design moved the focus of the series to the mode of competitive action with multiplayer with the launch of all follow-ups Unreal Tournament 2003 in the year 2002, Unreal Tournament 2004 in the year 2004, and the Unreal Tournament 3 in the year 2007.
