MEUT2K4 is a mash-up of Unreal Tournament 2004 and the Mass Effect Series. Unreal Tournament is known as one of the original mod heavy online 1st person shooters of the early 2000s. With the next generation of Unreal Tournament on the horizon, I thought it would be fun to take a look back at one of the 1st modern online shooters, and see if I can give the design of the UT2K4 universe a little boost with the incredibly well rendered world and characters of Mass Effect.
The action of Unreal Tournament is crazy fast paced and chaotic, and it looks awful by today's standards. Mass Effect is a much slower paced game with the most incredible universe design I have seen. I ripped characters out of the Mass Effect games, and gave them whatever the opposite of an upgrade is to fit into the Unreal Engine 2's limitations.
Below are the results. All character characters, skins, voices, team symbols, maps, and mods are available for download, and fully playable in Unreal Tournament 2004. Enjoy.
