Epic is turning off online services and servers for some older games

Post by Pikko »

Unfortunate news: Epic has decided to shut down their master servers for numerous older titles, and even delisting them off Steam, UT being just one of them:
https://www.epicgames.com/site/en-US/ne ... lder-games
(If you own the games in your library, they should still be downloadable). At the moment it does look like they are still available on GOG but it is unknown if it'll stay like that until their deadline.

While this does look grim, thankfully we do have custom master servers from the likes of Darkelarious, noccer and more, so at the very least the game WILL be playable online. However if you have the latest 469 patch installed, this has been done already and no changes should be needed đź‘Ť

In the coming days we'll try to make it easy and visible for new or returning players to revisit the game online, with simple tutorials/guides that would be easy to find and follow.

Hoping to share more info as we get it, but that's it for now. Take care everyone...
