Posted on October 9, 2007, Chris Unreal Tournament 3 Demo Coming Soon
Mark Rein, vice president of Epic Games, has posted on the official Unreal forums updating the community on the status of the incoming PC demo of Unreal Tournament 3. The demo is being called a “beta demo,” as Epic will be looking to test the game on various system setups and receive feedback from the community. Rein said that the development team thinks the demo could possibly make it out this week, but if not, it’ll definitely be out within two weeks.
Just wanted to give you a heads’ up that we’re getting pretty close to releasing the Unreal Tournament 3 Beta Demo for Windows. The Beta Demo will allow instant action play against bots as well as online multiplayer. The purpose of the Beta Demo is to test the game on a large variety of hardware configurations and get gameplay feedback from the community. The development team feels they’re pretty close to being ready to release this so it could come out this week but for safety sake I’d say it should be out within two weeks.
We have a few fan sites in tomorrow to play the full game and I’m sure they’ll be sharing their comments pretty soon afterward.
The PlayStation 3 version of UT3 was recently delayed, but the PC version should still be in stores by November 20.
