    We're trying to get confirmation on this - stay tuned.

    Also, it only applies to UT3.

    UT3 Expansion

    We've decided that the best way to deliver the UT3 expansion we've been hinting about is in two parts. This patch is the first part. We aren’t quite ready yet to start going into detail about the bonus content and gametypes that will be in the Titan Pack, which is substantially bigger than any bonus pack we've released in the past.

    From whoever
    Either way, thank you for a huge push at breathing some life back into something we all are so passionate about. Thanks Epic! :D

    This good.

    Now we will see threads that, instead of bashing Epic will be all about 'told ya so' or this how the game should have shipped bull**** etc.... looking forward to those posts! Weeee!!!!!!!

    This had me at 'saves instant action settings'.

    Though can someone give me a reason why epic has never, ever implemented maplist randomization?

    Few games are perfect when they're released, but by the same token few games are as shoddy as UT3, especially supposed AAA titles. And if you think UT3 was anywhere near acceptable on its initial release then that quite definitely makes you the idiot my friend.

    Even after three large patches it's still missing many features that anyone who's ever played an on-line fps has come to expect, and indeed features that UT2004 had. The fact that over 5 months have passed since the previous patch and UT3 is looking deader than corduroy jeans with pockets in the knees shows how crappy the game still is after over a year after release. I mean, just look at the fundamental changes that should have been in the game from day 0 this patch is bringing.

    I'm not exactly sure what your beef is with my post - perhaps you should go back and read it a couple of times more, because whatever context or spin you're reading it with is wrong. Now let's not turn this thread into a flame war.. PM me if you have anything else to add. Thanks.

    Also anyone else think they should release a new demo to draw in new players?

    This brings a huge smile to this jaded old gamer's face.

    Is this the return of Epic for their PC fans? It's looking like it just might be.

    You know what the best part about all this is? A dev (presumably) actually posted. :D Hooray for Epic!

    I think it's a very smart idea releasing in two parts as well. Glad to see someone has their thinking cap on.

    Absolutely! Perhaps once the expansion is released they could throw together a quick demo. Even better would be to allow the demo to be played with retail players like 2k4. It couldn't do any harm and would boost player numbers considerably. Please take note Epic.

    Thanks for the clarification (assuming you actually are someone with authority :)).

    Would be great, but I think it might be pretty hard for them to do? Basically you'd need to convert your existing CD-Key into something from the Steam CD-Key pool (or however Steam copies work with UT3's master server). The problem being that if it's not possible to do a straight conversion then what happens with the original CD-Key from the retail box? Obviously can't let someone have a second license for free (although it would be an excellent way to rapidly expand the player base).

    If they do find a way for this to happen, I'll probably switch over too.

    YES. It's been overdue since the first three patches. Patched retail easily sees twice the performance as the demo version.
