Epic Games have finally announced the latest iteration in their long running Unreal Tournament franchise. Although it does not have a name yet, it will be completely free to play. But the real deal is that it will be without micro-transactions. Now, that should please a lot of fans who are against micro-transactions.

So how will Epic Games make money then? Epic Games plans to support its community by actually co-developing the game with them. They also plan to have in-game store where users can sell their custom content and Epic Games will take a cut out of it. This is a very unique business model and am not sure how many game publishers/developers have ever implemented such a system before. It remains to be seen whether this will be successful or no but regardless a big kudos to Epic Games for developing a community oriented game.

The new Unreal Tournament will be using Unreal Engine 4 and the developers will reveal new information soon. Let us know your thoughts and comments in the section below.
