Want to play the new Unreal Tournament?

Epic Games have been busying themselves with the new Unreal Tournament for a little while now, and I - like many - can't wait to get my grubby hands on the new game. The only problem is that there's no solid release date as yet, so who knows how long it could take?

Well, if you're feeling particularly antsy, Epic have now opened up access to their pre-alpha development builds, so eager players can check out how the game is playing first-hand, even at this early stage of development.

To get involved, just head to this forum thread (you'll need to make a free account to view it) and follow the instructions.

If you're not particularly pumped about the prospect of playing a pre-release? They're still making weekly livestreams of how development is progressing, so check it out!
