The Adrenaline Vault heeft wat meer info over de Unreal Tournament demo die deze week op het net wordt gemikt. De eerste versie die waarschijnlijk donderdag komt, is Glide only . Daarna, waarschijnlijk dit weekend, komt er een versie die ook OpenGL en D3D ondersteuning biedt.
Adding one plus one and coming up with ''gold,'' observant gamers are abuzz with rumors that Epic Games' 3D action title Unreal Tournament is finished. In a recent post to the game's public message board, the development team mentioned a demo would be available after the game went gold. When news emerged that a demo was close to release, it was assumed the game was done. Nonetheless, Epic insists the game is not gold, but that the demo being released soon is the first of two test versions intended to provide specific input regarding how close they are to going gold.
The first demo, to be released before Saturday, is sponsored by 3dfx and is Glide-only. 3dfx wanted to sponsor the demo as a premium for Voodoo3 3000 users awaiting free versions of the game. The full test version released a few days later will support Direct 3D, OpenGL, Glide, Metal and software rendering. The download will be around 51 MB and include three deathmatch, one Capture The Flag and one Domination level, one player model with a few variations, six of the weapons and a shortened single-player ladder.
The demo will be playable in English, Spanish, French and Italian, but to minimize the size of the download, the only verbal voices included are in English. The demo will require approximately 125 MB of hard drive space and feature single-player against Bots, LAN and Internet play, and can act as a client or server. Epic is also including a web-based remote server administration so those running servers can administer them from any web browser.
