Back in 2000, there were two must-have games in terms of frenetic online multiplayer: Quake 3 and Unreal Tournament. As to which one was superior, though, debates still rage on in parts of the internet, and I'm not even going to go near that can of worms. At any rate, UT was apparently popular enough for Epic Games to release a sequel, the cleverly named Unreal Tournament 2003, and then another sequel, UT2004, to fix many of the complaints lobbied against UT2003. Not soon after, we saw our first screenshots of Unreal Tournament 2007, and we were blown away by the incredible graphics; anticipation made the wait seem endless. But now, seven years after the original UT, the first public beta demo of UT2007 has been...released!
We reported earlier that the UT2007 Demo was close to release, and luckily our sources did not fail us. The demo includes three deathmatch and vehicle capture the flag maps with support for bots and online play, though the highly anticipated Unreal Warfare mode will not be making an appearance just yet. From posts by users on the Neowin forums, performance seems fairly good for an early release, and we will update as more reports become available. Gamers can grab the demo from Fileplanet, though download speeds have been taking a hit as the download garners more attention.
