Information about Unreal Tournament 3

Unreal Tournament 3 (UT3) is a first-person shooter and online multiplayer video game by Epic Games and is the latest installment of the Unreal series after Unreal Tournament 2004 (13 years ago). It is published by Midway Games and was released for Microsoft Windows on Nov. 19, 2007 (10 years ago), PlayStation 3 on dec. 11, 2007 (10 years ago), and on Xbox 360 on Jul. 3, 2008 (9 years ago). The Linux (40 walls) and Mac OS X versions of the game are planned to be released as downloadable installers that work with the retail disc. As of Aug. 2009 (8 years ago), this is yet to be released. However, Ryan Gordon has uploaded screenshots of the game running on both platforms. Recently as a reply to a twitter post Ryan Gordon replied that the UT3 port for Linux (40 walls) was still being worked on.

Unreal Tournament 3 is the fourth game in the Unreal Tournament series and the eighth Unreal game, but it has been numbered in terms of the engine it runs on. The original Unreal Tournament uses the original Unreal Engine, while UT2003 and UT2004 use the Unreal Engine 2, and 2004 (13 years ago) incorporates all of the content from 2003; therefore they are considered as the same generation. UT3 is subsequently part of the third generation, because it runs on the Unreal Engine 3, and does not reuse any content. In Mar. 2008 (9 years ago), Midway announced that UT3 had sold over a million copies worldwide.

Gameplay

Similar to the previous entries of the series, the game is primarily an online multiplayer title offering several game modes, including large-scale Warfare, Capture-the-Flag, and Deathmatch. It also includes an extensive offline single-player game with an in-depth story, advancing from the simple tournament ladder to such concepts as team members with their own individual personalities. The following game modes are included:
Deathmatch
Team Deathmatch
Capture the flag
Duel: A one versus one gametype. It uses a queueing system, the winner stays, and the loser goes back to the end of the queue. A typical match lasts fifteen minutes with the winner being the player with most frags.
Warfare: An amalgamation of Onslaught and Assault. While basic game rules are equal to those of Onslaught, Warfare adds unlinked nodes which can always be captured (supplying the capturing team with vehicles and a spawnpoint) and countdown nodes (which, after being captured and defended for a certain period of time, create a vehicle or trigger an event helpful to the capturing team) as well as the orb, which can be used to instantly capture and defend nodes.
Vehicle Capture the Flag: Capture the Flag, with vehicles as part of the map; this exists as a separate game type to Capture the Flag, above. Also, players are given a hoverboard rather than a translocator.
Betrayal: This Instagib game type places "freelance" players on teams and, as the members of the team kill enemies, a pot with that team grows. Anybody on a team with a pot can 'betray' the rest of the team by shooting them, thus taking the pot, but they must defend themselves from the betrayed teammates for 30 seconds after that, else the previous teammates will cash in on extra points.
Greed: Greed is a game that (like the UT2004 mod of the same name) focuses around collecting skulls dropped from dead players and capturing them in the opposing team's base. For Greed, the game uses all Capture the Flag and Vehicle Capture the Flag maps.
Modes not returning from the previous Unreal Tournament games include Invasion, Mutant, Onslaught, Bombing Run, Last Man Standing, Domination, Double Domination, and Assault; Assault was removed from the game during production. Due to the game's customizable nature these game modes could be recreated by users of the game.

Vehicles

In this installment of Unreal Tournament, the vehicles are split into two factions, the Axon vehicles and Necris vehicles. The Axon vehicles are the same vehicles from UT2004, but several have significant gameplay changes. In addition, every player is equipped with a personal hoverboard on vehicle maps, which is a skateboard-like device that allows players to quickly traverse large maps and grapple onto other teammates' vehicles. However, the hoverboard is very vulnerable to attack, and any kind of hit will knock the player off the board and disable him or her for several seconds, thus being highly exposed to be killed by nearby enemies. Additionally, the player cannot use any weapons while on the board.

Expansion

On Mar. 5, 2009 (8 years ago), a free update called "Titan Pack" was released for the PC, the PS3 version of the pack was released on Mar. 19, 2009 (8 years ago).

The pack includes a large amount of new content such as the five maps and two characters that were previously exclusive to the Xbox 360 version along with 11 brand new maps, two new game modes ("Greed" and "Betrayal"), the Titan Mutator (as a player does better, they can grow in physical size while also carrying a modified homing rocket launcher and a modified shock rifle, a Berzerk powerup and UDamage powerup, as well as considerably more health and armor. From there, after attaining more points, the Titan can grow into a Behemoth which is twice the size, twice as powerful and dies with a redeemer blast after 40 seconds), a new power up (a version of the slow field deployable now in power up form), a new vehicle, two new deployables and the addition of stinger turrets. A new patch was also released in conjunction with the Titan pack, which allowed for various AI improvements (especially in vehicle modes), networking performance upgrades and added support for Steam Achievements (PC) and Trophies (PS3). It also adds a two player splitscreen mode (previously exclusive to the 360 version) and mod browsing for the PS3 version.

There are currently no plans to release the Update pack for the Xbox 360 version.
