Free UT3 Weekend From Tomorrow

By Jim Rossignol on September 17th, 2009.


And that’s on Steam, obviously. Epic send word that the free weekend is intended to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the release of the original Unreal Tournament demo. Anyway, that means you can download Unreal Tournament 3 Black (which is the 2007 shooter plus add-on packs) and play the game through the weekend for no pennies.

In addition, the original Unreal Tournament will be on sale for $1.99, and both Unreal Tournament 3 Black and the Unreal Deal Pack will be available for 60% off through September 27.

And presumably if you fancy some mod action you can take the opportunity to download Prometheus, The Ball, and The Haunted.

UT2D: SuperMario

By Jim Rossignol on February 24th, 2009.


It’s early in the morning, and this side-scrolling deathmatch mod makes me feel somewhat queasy. I found it while poking around on Offworld, and while it’s not new it certainly deserves a mention. If just for weirdness: 2D deathmatch with the UT3 weapons and avatars, but with the sounds and background music of SuperMario. It is distinctly not right. You can download it from here, or watch it in motion after the jump.

UT3, Now With More Dinosaurs

By Alec Meer on October 20th, 2008.

Yeah, it's dead. Screenshotting a live one proved almost impossible.

Unreal Tournament 3 remains an oddly ugly game, which always seemed a bewildering misfire on the part of an FPS that, so it seemed, existed primarily to pimp an engine. It’s like a milkman painting a picture of a cow with tortured, bleeding udders on the side of his van. While UT3 plays okay (the highlight being its agreeably ridiculous vehicles), its look is just visual noise, a mess of vague, clashing aesthetic ideas that somehow manages to seem devoid of colour despite drawing a silly neon border around everything. What a shame. What I’m still hoping – as a long-term UT player – is that the mod community can yet rescue it from the drab, tokenistic fate Epic themselves damned it to.

Mark Rein: “Cliff’s an idiot!”

By Kieron Gillen on February 26th, 2008.

Yeah, there really aren't enough free high res shots of the man around.
He’s joking, obviously. Cliffy B’s lovely. Eurogamer mentioned this quote yesterday, but have put up the full interview today. In it, after the terrier of Eurogamer Tom Bramwell stops trying to make him talk about Gears of War 2 for a whole page, he starts talking PC…

“Hey, Cliff is Cliff, and he’s making a console game, and that’s what he’s focused on, so that’s what his thinking is all about. But as a company, we make PC games. We love the PC, it’s our heritage, we want to see it be strong, and we want to sell games like Unreal Tournament III and Gears of War on PC, and have them sell as well as they do on console.”

He goes on to talk about the PC Gaming alliance and his actually positive feelings on the sales of UT3. Jump in here to skip the Gears of War 2 harrying.
