Midway announces Unreal Tournament 2007

Filed under
Gaming

Midway Games today took the wraps off Unreal Tournament 2007, the successor to the highly praised Unreal Tournament 2004. Like all previous Unreal games, UT2007 is being developed by North Carolina-based Epic Games. It will be based on the developer's much-ballyhooed Unreal 3 engine and will be released for the PC in 2006.

"UT2007 will be a major evolution for the Unreal series. Fans will be blown away by the next-generation gameplay, modifiability and visuals that Epic's Unreal Engine 3 technology will bring to the franchise," said Steve Allison, Midway's chief marketing officer. The game will be viewable by the public at Midway's booth at E3 next week.

Unreal Tournament 2007 will once again feature the sci-fi action that has made the series popular. According to Epic president Mike Capps (a video with whom is available below), UT 2007 will "be a mix of UT 2004 and the original [Unreal Tournament from 1999]." Though it will likely not feature UT 2004's less-than-popular domination mode, the game will sport deathmatch, team deathmatch, onslaught, assault, capture the flag, and one-on-one duels. The game will also sport an all-new mode, conquest, which will feature a new style of gameplay, according to Epic.

In Red Hat, I’m responsible for web browsers, so I wondered what are the most popular web browsers among Fedora users. So I asked through Fedora accounts on Facebook and Google+: “Which browser do you use the most in Fedora?” Read more

Life in a Post-Container World and Why Linux Will Play a Diminished Role

Containers have actually been with us since the late 1990s, but they are not the end of the story. The real transformation will come with a “serverless” future that will completely overturn the ops ecosystem. Companies will go out of business, new ones will spring to life, and thousands of people will have fundamental changes to their jobs. The shift to a serverless future is much bigger than your normal hype cycle — I believe the current container hoopla is a foreshock preceding a 9.0 quake. Read more

FFmpeg's Leader Resigns, Hopes To Make Libav Developers Come Back

30 Sys Admins to Follow on SysAdmin Day

Systems administrators: They keep our high-tech world up and running. From capacity planning, to 3 a.m. phone calls, to retiring that 10-year-old server that uses more power than your whole house, sys admins do it all. Open source communities would not be able to thrive without the networks, services, and tools that allow for communication and collaboration, and sys admins are the ones who work thanklessly year-round to keep them going. July 31 is System Administrator Appreciation Day, a day for all of us to express our undying gratitude for sys admins. Sure, you could buy your favorite sys admin cake and ice cream, or perhaps a nice gift card. You could even go as far as not breaking the server for just one day. You also can follow these 30 sys admins. Read more
