Unreal Tournament Beta - cover pack: Brute

Post by Delacroix » Wed Jan 18, 2012 6:50 pm

Greetings.

During my last stay at the capital, Warsaw, I found a copy of UT beta on a flea market. The beta is standard 222 fare, as ripped by Russians (no original installer, no editor, no U1 maps - packed in a WinRAR SFX file), so I already had that - but the reason I bought it for is the cover: totally unique. This depicts a rare Brute concept art on the front.

Wrong, it's a BETA of UT99 sold retail by the Russians in April 1999.

Yes, it is. According to Leo, it was on some Czech game mag cover and StalwartUK supplied a cover of Unreal Soundtrack with this brute on the back.

It's weird seeing a Brute with actual legs. I'm used to those stubby little things.

Maybe there was planned a Brute-Hybrid for UT ...like the Skarji-Hybrid??

Who wants to make a model ...the Brute-Hybrid...

Did anyone else get a kick out of the "E for Everyone" rating and system requirements?

Hi guys, I may be some years late but...
The brute artwork was for Unreal (not UT), it resembles brute skins from pre-release 1998 demo.
And yeah, in 1998 it was featured on cover of czech Score gaming magazine.
