Avault heeft een artikel gepost over de Unreal 224 upgrade patch, die binnen enkele dagen gereleased zal worden en een aantal vette enhancements heeft:
According to Epic vice president Mark Rein, the upcoming version 224 patch will include significant enhancements that anticipate technologies being implemented in the next title in the series, Unreal Tournament. Among these are an in-game server browser that enables users to select game servers via a windows-style graphical user interface without leaving the game environment; the browser pops up over the game in progress. An updated version of GameSpy Lite, the popular game server browser, will also be included with the patch.
Another major enhancement to be included in 224 is continuous level of detail, which varies polygon counts on objects such as player characters and power-ups relative to their distance from the camera, or player's perspective. In Unreal Tournament, this will enable the engine to place more characters and objects on the screen and still maintain a consistent and fluid framerate. Rein said this is an important feature not just for Unreal and Unreal Tournament but also for engine licensees since it also opens the engine to new game types, such as real-time strategy titles, that were not previously obvious choices for the engine.
