Gunreal is a UT2004 mod, completely redoing UT2004's combat and game mechanics with its own weapons and pacing.

It currently features: 14 New Weapons - Weapon-Shopping - Dynamic Inventory Belt - Walk/Sprint Stamina - Dynamic Accuracy - Improved Player Size - New Blood & Gore - Hit Indicator - Smooth Weapon Drag - Grenades, Mines, and Deployable Teleporters

For those who are new to the mod, it essentially builds off UT2004 (though aiming to be its own thing entirely) to bring the weapons and combat to new levels of solidity, power, and feel of relentless destruction. Special care has been put into the explosions, effects, and especially sound design, with the specific intent (and challenge) of putting the feel of combat on a level higher than any other shooter in existence (but only you can tell us if we've succeeded or not).

Since this is NOT UT2004, however, pacing and gameplay is different. Movement is nearly identical to Half-Life 2 and Battlefield 2 (walk/sprint with stamina), and we use a completely original shopping/money system to add an almost RPG-like element of micromanagement and thought to the game. (see the trailer for details) Alongside all the violence and rage, we've put a great deal of thought into the strategy aspects of the game as well, in an attempt to cater to gamers of all play-styles and backgrounds.

- Also, much thanks for the support from fans so far. Reception has been phantasmagoric, and we're greatly motivated to roll forward. :)

So, without any further ado, you can either:

Thanks for the compliments, all. To answer a couple questions, yes, the demoroom will probably be included, and no, Gunreal won't be compatible with other weapon mods, for a few reasons (by the way, it's a TC mod, not Mutator). The weapon system is entirely different than UT. Each gun has an inventory size, money value, and ammo value, so mixing other guns with the mod won't work.

That said, the balance is going to be "just so", so mixing in other weapons will vary the balance and overall solidity of the experience. The other systems in the game (money, rewards, gore, death effects, character movement, etc, as well as all the new effects) will also make it a whole new game on its own, so it's not like you'll be sitting there, starving for freshness and variety any time soon.

That's the deal for Gunreal for UT2004. It's designed to simply hold you until Ground War for UT3 arrives.

When UT3 comes around, you can expect a standard, full 1.0 release of Ground War, followed by 1.5 / 2.0 / 2.5 updates that periodically pump the game full of new weapons and features to play with. For now, we're just focusing on making Gunreal for UT2004 as polished and drop-dead solid as physically possible for it's 1.0 release.

- Oh, and the release date is "coming". There are now 3 active coders working on the last remaining features, and then we have to test it. Won't be too long now. It'll be here well before UT3. It was previously put off by the lack of coders (went almost a year with 0 coding done, while I continued to work on art), but the drought is over now, and we're steaming ahead.
