Unreal Tournament 2004 Gets Universal Binary

Epic Gamesi Ryan Gordon has released a Universal Binary patch for Unreal Tournament 2004. In addition to enabling gameplay on both PowerPC and Intel Macs, this 200MB update includes the Epic Mega Pack, which features new maps and other content.

MacSoft, which published the Mac version of the game, said in a statement that the programmer was able to "literally double the frame rate of UT04 as compared to running on the iMac G5." As Mr. Gordon revealed in The Mac Observeris recent article about the status of Universal Binaries in the game space, he has been working on this update since last June.

The update is available as a direct download from Mr. Gordonis Web site, or through MacGameFiles.
