Unreal Tournament 3 on 360 to Sport Five New Exclusive Maps

unreal-tournament-31.jpg

There’s still no release date attached to Unreal Tournament 3 on Xbox 360, but Epic is already telling people what they’ll find in this version of UT3 that they won’t get elsewhere. Five new exclusive maps that aren’t in either the PC or PS3 versions of the game, two new characters, and support for two play splitscreen play. You’ll also find the free downloadable content Epic released a few weeks ago on the disc right form the get go.

That’s all well and good, but it’s not going to matter much if Microsoft doesn’t allow Epic to enable mods in the 360 version of the game. All the exclusive content in the world doesn’t mean squat when modders can easily recreate both the maps and characters for the PC and PS3 versions of the game.

Epic’s Jeff Morris talked about how UT3 is a twitch shooter, and is just what people need that have tired of the more tactical shooters on the market. While he might have a point about that, it’s still going to leave a lot of people in the dark on a feature that has been a mainstay of this series since its inception.

Whoa, five new maps, wow :roll:

So is that 5 more on top of the 60 I already have on top of the ones that came with the PS3 version? I doubt it.

MODS FTW, restrictive online you pay for everything attitude FTL

Those 5 new maps will be made for PLAYSTATION 3 via Mod so PS3 will always be better version.

Ps3 Sucks you should check on the versions they tried to build but could not because of the core crashes and not enough finances.
