Unreal Tournament 2004 Demo

The Unreal Tournament 2004 Demo Win32 client is now available, offering a sample of the next installment in Epic's multiplayer shooter series. The demo is a 209 MB download, available on 3D Gamers, Absolute Gamer's, ActionTrip, Adrenaline Vault, Boomtown (registration required), FileFront, FilePlanet (registration required), Filerush, FileShack (registration required), GameSpot DLX (registration required), GameTab, IGN, Loadedinc, NVIDIA's nZone, UT2003Files, and Worthplaying. Here's word from an earlier story on this on the contents: "The Unreal Tournament 2004 official demo includes five playable game modes, and offers fans their first taste of Unreal Tournament 2004’s two new game modes: the introduction of the hyper-charged Onslaught mode and the return of the fan-favorite Assault mode, which last appeared in the original Unreal Tournament. The demo also features established gametypes like Deathmatch, Capture the Flag and Bombing Run."

UT wasn't really that good. The engine back then sucked so much it ruined the gameplay...

Not for me, of course back then I was running a Voodoo3 vid card which ran the game great (but could hardly handle Q3). I'm betting you had an Nvidia TNT card which seemed to be the card to have to play Q3 but wouldn't do squat with UT until the GeForce line came out.

Damn, I sure wish I had pulled the trigger on buying my new computer a week earlier. Of course in the meantime I'm still going to try to run the demo on this ancient beast.

not that I'm going to dl it, but is the rocket launcher still castrated down to 3 rockets at once in alt fire?

You pansy! "WAAAAAH, I need 5 rockets to kill someone because I suck at FPS's!" You wouldn't have lasted 60 seconds back in the Quake days.

I like it both ways. The next best thing to a "HEADSHOT" is a massive multi-rocket carnage-crunchin', limb-loppin', eyeball poppin' spam kill!!!

My box just died yesterday. Well... it's on life support right now actually, but there is a problem with my vid card. The vid card fan won't come on. Not sure if it's a problem with the card, or if the agp slot isn't getting enuf power, which could be either a m/b or p/s problem. Whatever the problem is, I just reinstalled Windows and it won't let me use my vid card. The drivers install fine and show up in Device Manager, but it insists on using the plain old VGA adapter and doesn't give me any option to change it. This really sucks. So now I'm stuck with a 800x600 and 16 colors and weird black line artifacts up and down my screen. Now, to add insult to injury, the UT2K4 demo comes out! WHAT DID I DO TO DESERVE THIS!?!

This game is just as crap as UT2003, I wouldn't expect anything else.

I have no idea how they managed to pull of UT and then produce to craptastic titles like UT2003 and UT2004!

I guess it was a fluke =D

This demo is very cool, once you find a non laggy server :).

The Vehicles rocks, though the airborne ones could use some tweaking.

"I also can no longer play. Apparently the master server doesn't like my cd-key."

Start a server, password it and play the bots. The AI isnt bad at all. I expected much worse. Fun game, enjoying the onslaught stuff with the vehicles.

This game is absolutely awesome! I had no anticipation for this because UT2003 underwhelmed me, but after playing this demo I'm excited as hell to get my hands on it!!! Whoever says this plays just like 2003 is full of it! This game plays so much like UT it feels like I am back in 1999! This game definately redeems Epic for '03 although it wasn't that bad it just didn't have the magic that UT had... THIS DOES!!!

Rather than edit my earlier post, I'll just apologize here

Onslaught is pretty dang fun.

I just don't like the in your face style of DM and Team DM..

If you like a slower paced BF1942 style game, with actual teamwork and strategy, this definitaly ain't it.

Never played much UT did you? Fast paced, sure but CTF and assault both required teamwork. The new Onslaught mode seems to require teamwork even more so. Anyway, awesome demo. I preordered the special edition yesterday from EB for 39.99 so get it while it's hot.

I don't know if I like it. It's exactly the same thing as UT.

The Original. It looks all the same to me. Very sharp gfx, very smooth.. but exactly the same super quick non intelligent flashy quake style gameplay.

If you like lots of bright colors and flash in your face like some psychotic Japanese game, getting killed by people named <<-%%%g)4ts8ckee$$443333^_^KEKE__544>- 3 miliseconds after you spawn, everyone bunny hopping around like faygs, then knock youself out.

Yahoo is hosting the UT demo, and they've got more bandwidth than they know what to do with:

The TDM and DM offerings in the demo aren't much to write home about - they both feel very much like they did in UT2K3 (although I see they have the old announcer back). Same goes for CTF and BR. But the new Assault and Onslaught modes are where the demo shines, and they're both great fun (although I prefer Onslaught). The vehicles are easy to control and fun to use - personally, I like the Tank the most, but the Raptor comes a close second...
