It's not like the new one is going to be playable anytime soon
Epic Games started development on a new Unreal Tournament in collaboration with the community and Unreal Engine 4 developers this week, and that makes this a decent enough time to discount the existing games in the franchise, I'd say. (Though you surely own 'em already, right?)
There's exactly such a deal running on Steam until Wednesday, May 14. Unreal, Unreal 2, Unreal Tournament: Game of the Year Edition, Unreal Tournament 2004: Editor's Choice Edition, and Unreal Tournament 3 Black are half price. You'd do well to play UT2K4.
Disclosure-bot: Just in case the editor neglected to mention it, we have zero control when deals start and end. Deals can sometimes be gone within minutes (please don't shoot the messenger). Trying deal links even hours after this article's time stamp may lead to self-punching, so maybe bookmark our video game deals if you're on the hunt. Also, it goes without saying, but some shopping links do directly support the author. If you've spotted any inaccuracy please let us know asap.
