yes, but a bit bare. early enough in development that changing the size of player model is still on the table (and, per one of their dev update streams, something a couple of them tweaked with).

>>322748453
Yes. https://www.unrealtournament com/blog/tutorials-how-to-play-ut

Epic games live up to their name.
Its better than all those Quake clones.

Is there recoil / imperfect accuracy?
>>
>>322748975
Just git gud
>>
>>322748975
no, it's not CSGO
>>
>>322748975
no recoil.
mix of hitscan and projectile weapons.
here's some dude going through the weapons tutorial-thing. watch on 1.5x or something, he seemed kinda ditz in the beginning.

What is with you and cocking up links?
>>
>>322749895
most likely yes.
depending on how good you were at quake it will feel slow movement wise at first but you'll adjust. UT movement is more dodgey jumpy (UTAlpha arguably less than previous; dodge-jump and double jump being absent) while quake is more speed racer.

Mechanically and graphically it's fantastic.

There's barely anything else though, and barely anyone plays it because it'ss a twitch shooter. Those aren't very popular anymore.

>>322748975

fuck off faggot this is an arena shooter

UT and quake are much faster paced
>>
>>322750509
I like Gears because its an arena shooter.
Power weapons
Symmetrical maps
Same starting loadouts
Skill based movement

Sure its not sanic fast... Still an arena shooter.

Hey, that's what I WANTED to hear.
I wouldn't play a UT without that.

I just remember a webm of the shock rifle having a recoil animation. That's dumb.

>>322750849
Recoil animation, sure. But there is no actual recoil.

>>322750624
Why hasn't anyone made a game that actually plays like Halo?

How hard is UT4 to mod? I want there to be a Halo mod for it or something.

Overwatch isnt an arena shooter though

Better question, why do people like playing shitty slow FPS games in the first place? Halo is garbage tier console peasant bullshit for queers and homosexual babby bitches that can't into mouse and keyboard.
>>
>>322750849
you mean a firing animation? did you see the crosshair jump?
'cause there aint no recoil, son.

>>322750978
development is open to the community, or whatever. I don't know details. Probably you can develop mutagens that turn it into halo but there aren't even all the mutagens from 2k4 in yet so what do I know.

Play Murder Miners. The visuals are simple, but it's a really good game.
It has cool jumping glitches to abuse too, so it's much better than Halo, although that wasn't by intentional design.

Fuck yes.

If it has classes or loadouts its not really an arena shooter.
Gears 3 had an alternate weapon for rifle and shotgun but it made sure they were balanced.
Overwatch has classes, never heard of Paladins, and i think Lawbreakers has loadouts.

yeah it's ok i prefer quake (reflex) though

paladins?

It is fun but kind of bare bones at the moment.

Still, twitch/arena shooters are pretty much dead except for this, so I have been enjoying it in small bursts every once to remember the days when FPS were fun.

Solid arena shooter with a solid engine.

Too bad it'll take forever to come out, and the original music composers won't be part of it despite their willingness because Epic is literally refusing to pay them to work.

the funny thing is they perfected ut when they made ut99

maps, music and feel are all perfect

hell i dont even want a graphics upgrade ut3 fucking sucked

ut99 forever boys i'll be playing it until i die

They should just crowdsource the jobs, since the game is going to be free anyways.
>>
>>322754184
>hell i dont even want a graphics upgrade ut3 fucking sucked

They know that very well, that's why they're moving in a completely different visual direction than UT3

How does this measure up to UT 2004?
>>
>>322754921
Less floaty, fights feel more similar to UT99 than 2k4.

Also, no vehicles.

That's because you haven't played it.

Until 343 took over and released the turd that Halo 4 is, Halo was the FPS series that was the closest to classic arena shooters. Its gameplay mechanics are also well beyond most FPSes out there, PC included, for they are incredibly basic on the surface, allowing everyone to play, while being quite complex underneath, allowing actual skill, or I would rather say, strategy. The balance between weapons, melee, grenades, vehicles, and all other elements is outstanding, and it's probably one of the few games where no weapon is left aside as "being useless".

It is the only FPS I've played so far that exhibited such a level of strategy in everything. Yes, the action is slow, no it doesn't focus heavily on precise shooting, but that's precisely because it's all about making the right choice at the right moment.

There really is something about Halo you don't see in any other game, and people tend to appreciate that.

Halo is a masterpiece honestly. Anyone that disagrees is doing it for edgy contrarian meme points.
>>
>>322759954
Halo was just a slow arena shooter. It had an emphasis on map control and movement which is basically what defines the subgenre. GoW was another arena shooter, although it had positioning as a huge part of its movement while UT and Quake had maneuverability.

Games such as CoD are twitch shooters, where it's all about getting the drop on your enemy. You aren't trying to control the map but rather move through certain paths that minimize your blind spots while maximizing your threat range.

Team Fortress and Overwatch are class shooters. You pick a loadout that synergizes with your teammates and work together to achieve an objective through everyone maximizing their own classes' strength.
>>
>>322764564
>Halo was just a slow arena shooter
with a wide variety of guns including guided projectiles, hitscan and explosive stuff, regenerative shields mechanic, melee mechanics including melee weapons, team-based vehicles, equipment/armor abilities, different types of grenades... and all that shit actually working together pretty well.

It actually pretty much has the depth of a class-based shooter without constraining you into a class.
>>
>>322748203
Yes. Just recently someone in the community released Assault.
>>
No.
Play warsow instead.
>>
>>322765162
Don't get me wrong, Halo was fucking incredible in terms of bringing the genre to console and had all sorts of cool stuff going on. I simply mean that genre wise it was a slow arena shooter, kind of like how I'd call GoW a tactical arena shooter as you are a lot more worried about where you're bunkering down than where you're rocket jumping to.

I wouldn't say it had the same sort of depth as a class shooter (TF2 class not CoD class) because you aren't really working with ideas such as team comp or counters though. It had a lot more tactical depth than strategic depth.
>>
>>322765614
>warsow
Might as well play UT3
>>
>>322759954

>It is the only FPS I've played so far that exhibited such a level of strategy in everything

You should play more FPses then, this is why people laugh at you.
>>
>>322765614
I wish people actually played this game.
>>
>>322766238
You should play Halo games then, this is why no one will take you seriously.

People are quick to dismiss it just because it's on console, but really, it's certainly an odd one on that platform.
>>
>>322766452

>You should play Halo games then, this is why no one will take you seriously.

This is laughable because I've played them up until 4. The problem is that most of what you would call 'deep' mechanics are already present in PC shooters such as UT, Tribes, TF2, Enemy Territory, etc. The difference between them is that the gunplay in halo is very slow and the physics floaty. It was a good game for it's time and great for introducing people to the genre. However it's very slow and lacks the movement mechanics present in most PC FPSes thus making it a slower and in effect a shallower arena based shooter. Even the melee system that you so lauded is essentially devaluing positioning by bein a lockon animation dependent on lenient positioning. Not to mention an instant kill if you have a sword.

People who say blanket statements like you did usually don't have the experience playing other games of higher skill to back it up. Halo was good but it wasn't great, people dismiss it because a lot of the lacking movement mechanics are because it WAS MADE FOR CONSOLES. I even played it on PC back in the day religiously for a while but then ultimately went back to UT.
>>
>>322767280
There are so many inaccurate and plain wrong things in your post, it makes me wonder how long you even played Halo games in multiplayer.
>>
>>322768131
Do you have anything to say besides
>nuh uh I bet u didnt even play it
Because you're not helping your argument when everyone else has shat all over it.
>>
>>322768583
>you're not helping your argument
that wasn't me, but still, it sounds like you haven't played it.
>>
>>322767280
Could you speed Halo up and have it stay balanced? Like if you were making a Halo clone for PC what would you change?
>>
>>322769967
Everything?
The only thing you could salvage from it is the needle gun and even that's not that great.
>>
>>322768131

Then list them and explain to me the deep mechanical intricacies in halo that I've somehow missed and how it's strategic depth stacks up to UT and Natural Selection.
