Unreal Tournament 3 Ships for PC, PS3 Version Coming Soon

Unreal Tournament 3 Box Art

Yes, you heard right. The PC version of Unreal Tournament 3 is now available. Simply head out to your favorite software store, and drop $49.95 for the regular version or $59.95 for the collector’s edition. This news is only for the PC version of the game; however, the press release states that the PS3 version is scheduled to be available soon.

It’s always interesting to see what developers have to say about their game at launch. Mark Rein of Epic Games said of UT3, “Unreal Tournament 3 delivers on the promise of high-caliber game quality that gamers have come to know and expect from Epic Games and the Unreal franchise. The power of Unreal Engine 3.0 has enabled the development team to set new expectations for what cutting-edge graphical and gameplay quality for a first-person shooter should be.”

I wonder how well this installment of the series will do in light of the recent release of Call of Duty 4, and the hordes of folks already playing it online. The Unreal Tournament games have always drawn a fairly large group of hardcore devotees though, so I wouldn’t be surprised to see some pretty impressive sales figures for this iteration. It’s also interesting to note that Epic just released Gears of War for the PC, which would seem to be a direct competitor to UT3. Of course, when you’re competing with yourself, the winner is predetermined, right?

If you haven’t tried the demo of UT3 yet, you can grab it right here. As always, FileFront has a ton of screens and trailers available at the FileFront UT3 Page.

I haven’t heard any news about a Mac client or a linux version. If we get anything on it, you can expect to see it posted here on the site.

The PS3 version will be released before the holiday season in the US because it’s been approved and is now at the manufacturers.

The EU version however might not be out till Jan or Feb :neutral:
