Epic Games, known from Gears of War and the Unreal series, among others, has announced the winners of the second phase of the “Make Something Unreal” competition. To win you need to put together a good mod for Unreal Tournament 3. The second phase of the competition has a total of $70,000 in prize money. Perhaps the highest stakes in the competition is a license to Unreal Engine 3, one of the leading engines of the moment.
New talent regularly emerges from the competition. That talent is often hired at Epic Games. Last year’s winner, Tripwire, can now be found on Steam with the WWII shooter Red Orchestra. The winners of phase two of the competition, as well as download links to the mods can be found here.
Unreal Tournament III is a completely new Unreal Tournament, taking an even bigger leap between the original Unreal Tournament and the 2003 and 2004 versions. This latest installment continues the well-known Unreal Tournament concept: as a futuristic warrior you take part in many fierce battles against strong enemies. Make clever use of the most powerful sci-fi weapons and vehicles to lead yourself to victory. Thanks to the popular Unreal Engine 3, Unreal Tournament III is graphically solid and there is also plenty of fast action online. Add to that the fact that you also get an extensive Unreal Engine 3 toolset to create your own levels, game types or mods and it is clear that UT3 is first person shooter at its best!
