In response to the overwhelming success of the DVD release of Unreal Tournament 2004–Special Edition, Atari and Epic Games will put out a two-disc DVD edition of Unreal Tournament 2004 on Tuesday, April 13. One disc will contain the entire game while disc two will feature several hours of video training modules from 3DBuzz.com that teach fans and amateur mod makers how to use the Unreal Editor to create custom game content.
The Special Edition DVD sold out at major retailers across the United States in the first three days of availability. Peter Wyse, exec producer at Atari, comments that the success "was beyond even our wildest expectations, with gamers grabbing up the DVD version in droves for easier installation and the hours upon hours of training videos by 3DBuzz.com."
Unreal Tournament 2004 was developed by Epic Games in conjunction with Digital Extremes. The game builds on the success of past installments, taking the franchise to the next level with the introduction of the Onslaught mode, the return of the fan-favorite Assault mode, and the introduction of land-, air- and space-based vehicles.
The new DVD Edition will not include the limited-edition tin box and Logitech Internet Chat Headset that were included in the Special Edition. For more information on Unreal Tournament 2004 or to download the free demo, visit the game’s official website at www.unrealtournament.com.
