That makes me wonder.

If Epic were to create a modern version of the Unreal Tournament cover, such as for a special re-release, what would it look like?
(No, boomers, it won't look like Fortnite. Epic might have shifted their current development focus, but they still know precisely what it means to be Unreal.)

Yea I noticed that german label. The rest is in english. And the manual is in hungarian. Guess it's a multi-euro-cultural cover design.

Reminds me of that old Star Trek quote, "You cannot truly appreciate Shakespeare until you've read it in the original Klingon."

So... "You cannot truly appreciate Unreal Tournament until you've played it in the original German."

Very strange indeed. Never seen a copy of UT with that cover.

the editing on the art looks like it was done on modern software, the effects used there were hard to make in the 99 and 2000 and they would be lower res

i have seen that art before on medor's site

seems like a bootleg but if it has all the items its just plain cool :rock:
