UT99 - introduced

Unreal Tournament -in short UT99- is a first person shooter (FPS) with -in 1999- leading 3D technology and effects. As said before, it was published in 1999. The producer is Epic Games, which was founded in Rockville, Maryland in 1991. The game was highly popular on lan parties and on the internet, especially cause of the newly introduced gametype, called deathmatch. Thousand and more gameservers provided the game to tenthousands of players on the net.

Since Unreal Tournament 2003 and 2004 came out, the UT99 community got smaller. Today there are around 100 servers active with some hundrets of players. But still the fast gameplay and the feeling wasnt reached by any other game again. UT99 is still the most exciting and fascinating game in the FPS genre.

UT99 is the base game for many mods, like TO2.2, developed by the community itself.
