    Please though, keep the original title/menu score. I don't mind if it's jazzed up a little bit. But don't change it!

      Of course we would be thrilled to have you and Alex involved in this project! The music you guys made always invokes tremendous nostalgia for me - I'm always instantly transported back to playing UT. How are you interested in participating?

      Regardless of the event that you return to compose music for the game, fans will be asking to remix this or that song anyway (it's already happening, if I remember correctly). I was wondering how you feel towards this idea; would you rather focus exclusively on all-new tracks, or are you perhaps already thinking about which tracks you would like to make a return in a modern form? Would it take a lot of time and effort to remake these tracks?
      He said earlier in this thread how some tunes he will want to revisit, but the majority to be fresh new songs.

        Oh, I read over that. Ok, then my post has no longer got a point, so I'll delete it. Thanks for the response!

          It would be nice to have an option for all the original songs from ut 99 to be in the game. Or allows us by folder to put them in. So they play randomly. and then they can focus on redoing, remixing the songs they want and making new.

          I personally was very happy when Blizzard finally added Starcraft 1 and Broodwar music to Starcraft 2. No reason why good old music should go to waste like that, when its so simple to move it over.

              It's really cool you're interested on working on UT once again! Given the whole point is for this to be a community focused project, can you talk a bit about how you might support community involvement in the soundtrack?

                I can't agree with what you said about Kevin Riepl. He made soundtracks for Ut2004 that are simply amazing, and even back in the days when i played the game very seriously(clan wars, tournaments), it didn't make me turn off the music. The music kinda got me pumped up everytime to play on my absolute best . And yes ut99 was one of the first fps games that i enjoyed a lot, and the music is also amazing! I would personally love to see some new soundtracks(for this game) from the ut2004&ut99 composers

                  Oh god this is too great. I listen to Unreal 1 and UT99 OST all the time, the tracks are so unique, memorable, adrenaline pumping, and atmospheric.

                  Unreal 1 remains one of my favorite games simply because of atmosphere, and I really can't imagine UT without you (I put all UT99 and Unreal tracks into 2k4).

                  This is just so wonderful, thank you Alex and Michiel for all the years of listening to your wonderful music.

                    Yes. Please.

                      Please, do.
                      Music and Level design were what gave an essence both Unreal and UT, having one of the composers back is indeed the right choice.

                        so true. I can go through the whole unreal 1 single players just to see the ending sequence with that masterpiece of composition that is "main title"

                            Thank you, Steven, for dropping by and expressing interest in getting Alex and Michiel to write the soundtrack for the new UT game. I sincerely hope you guys can come to an agreement. And if you manage to squeeze Rom Di Prisco in there somewhere as well, it will be a match made in heaven. Rom has written some of the best EDM tracks I have ever heard and I loved his original tunes for UT2007.

                            Thanks again!
