http://www.pcgamer.com/uk/2014/05/08/new-unreal-tournament-game-will-be-free-developed-by-epic-and-ut-community/

In short:
-UT4 will be an open source community developed game, not done by Epic alone but with Epic dev team helping.
-UT4 will be free, but the community can make mods or different games and charge if they want in which case Epic gets a cut which is how they will make their money.

This sounds really good, Epic make a great games engine but pretty naff games.  Even UT2004 was a UT2003 mod not initially developed by Epic.  Now for UT4 they provide the engine and hopefully we'll get a load of good games off it as people invent them.  Big boost for PC market too as small time devs are going to invent for that first as it's much easier and cheaper then if it works maybe port to consoles later.

Yep. Awesome news! Been playing a little UT2k4 in anticipation :D

So UT2004 was a community mod!? Seriously? That is crackers. ha. Explains why they failed with UT3 off the bad Grrrrr!

Speaking of which, you all got it installed?
