      They actually stated it will not be "Free to Play" but free. Completely free.

            My guess is that UT4 will serve as a big tech demo for UE4.

              Not sure if it will be completely open-source. At least a part of it will be on Github.

                • All code and content will be available live to UE4 developers on GitHub

                Sounds like a stallmannian game.

                  Source code license is still proprietary.
                  So it's more like FreeSpace Source Code Project.

                      Is Epic Games planning to make the game free as a large tech demo for showing off their engine and pay the development by licensing the engine?
                      Or are there other ways Epic Games gets the needed cash for this project?

                        It seems so. [strike]They didn't say anything about a bussiness model.[/strike] Just "not free to play" and "will be free".

                        Worth noting that they see this as a living project: the game will keep evolving, that's why it'll be called just "Unreal Tournament".

                          So basicly what Team Fortress 2 is doing.

                          This is some serious stuff. We hoped for a Linux client, we get a Linux client, code and content on GitHub. I don't even...

                            I don't care at all for multi-player FPS but give me a fully working (and updated to work with today's Linux ecosystem) Unreal 1 on Linux - preferably on Steam where I already own the game - without me having to track down a retail copy of a game that is no longer sold and I'll be happy as a puppy with a bully stick.

                              It's funnny to read the comments on Windows gaming websites. The idea that something is developed in the open seems to confuse the shit out of some people.
