PS3 UT3 Mod Tools Coming Soon
While we did post the first ever user created Unreal Tournament 3 map for the PlayStation 3 recently, the actual tools to convert mods from the PC and send them to the PS3 haven’t been made available to the public. Mark Rein posted an update on when we can expect the update to the Unreal Engine 3 editor on the official UT forums:
We’re very close to releasing an update to the Unreal Engine 3 editor, that comes with the PC version of UT3, that will allow UT3 mod-makers to cook their mods into the required PS3 format. We’ve been doing some internal testing and we’re hoping to expand to a wider group tomorrow or Friday. If all goes well then we should see the update released next week which is what I expect will happen. Obviously the process works, as we put out a few mods before Christmas and people seem to be playing them, but it is the update to the editor that we’re testing.
So cross your fingers, and a surplus of mods might soon be making their way onto the hard drives of PS3 UT players.
That is, if anyone is actually playing it – sales for the PC version were poor when we last saw sales figures, although the PS3 version is almost certainly a lock to sell fairly well. But I know I’m not the only one that hasn’t suddenly and completely lost interest in UT.
