Unreal Tournament 3 Blasting Its Way onto the 360 in July
Included will be five exclusive maps, split-screen capabilities, two new characters and the all-new Warfare mode and no mod support.
Meanwhile, Europe will be getting their copies a few days earlier on July 4th. Maybe they should celebrate with some fireworks, overcooked hot dogs from the grill, apple-pie, potato salad and invite some sweaty beer swilling neighbors over to piss in their pool.
The full press release is posted after the break.
Thanks for the Heads Up: VG247
