Today’s UT Project Twitch stream gave fascinating insight into how Epic will bring TF2-like functionality to the game by allowing people to make and buy custom hats and many other items on the marketplace.
Pete Knepley gave a live walkthrough of how to bring in a custom hat mesh into the game and make it playable.
Steve Polge discussed a rough target of springtime to open up the game to a wider audience for playtesting. Seems like quite a bit of work to do before then!
Lastly, the topic of Epic playtests with the community came up. Epic is planning on running servers very soon that will be set up to playtest with the community. I already got my arse handed to me once by a hammer-crazed Joe Wilcox on a public server over the holidays!
