    US Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), and other US government agencies, licensed the Unreal Engine from Epic. Unreal is one of the most popular cross-platform game engines in the industry, and United States, through various agencies will use the engines in "serious games", games designed to simulate situations such as crime scenes, encounters, casualty treatment, for the agents to learn to deal with. While the full financial details of these deals were not disclosed, the deal with FBI Intelligence Advanced Research Projects Activity (IARPA) earned Epic around US $10 million.

    I find it funny they would use such a Old Engine. UT3 was the least popular out of the series that even creators behind the CHAOS mod discontinued upgrading the mod. People Play UT99 and UT 2004 more. Cliffy B is a sellout

    Wouldn't encounters be better simulated with paintball guns? Or do the have money to buy every soldier a real gun, but not toy gun to train with?
