Unreal is 20 Years Old

Can you believe that Unreal is 20 years old? Steam will have a FREE Unreal Gold Edition for a limited time starting at Noon CDT. While you may not be aware of this, HardOCP's original content was published 20 years ago as well, and the title of our page was "The Unreal Framerate Page." Our work with overclocking CPUs of the day and getting those to run as fast as the then fastest and most expensive Intel CPUs was picked up by Voodoo Extreme and Blue's News, and from then it all just snowballed. Fun times for sure. We imagine that the video below will bring back a lot of memories.

There's no video I could make to truly do a game like Unreal justice, as there is just far too much, too much that makes this game as special as it is, if I were to show everything, every amazing landscape, every unique creature, every cool experience and moment that Unreal has given throughout the years, this video would be hours and hours long and go on forever. What you see here is a fraction, a glimpse, of the amazing game that this is, and I hope to show people where Unreal all began.
