Unlike the other previous three installments in the franchise we’ve created this version as a tool for all video game players. Just like Minecraft you will be able to enter this game and create new content for everyone to enjoy. You could essentially create a video game from scratch and post it on the Unreal Tournament database for everyone to enjoy. We hope that with the help of kickstarter we will be able to bring multiple new games to light.”
