Unreal Tournament III for PC is GOLD
One of the most anticipated first-person shooters outside of Halo 3, Unreal Tournament III, has gone gold for the PC. Expect to see it in stores on November 20th, as it ships on the 19th.
With the PC version going gold, the next big question is “When are we going to see it on consoles?” Especially where the PS3 is concerned, as it’s a major title for the system. All looks to be on the up-and-up where Epic’s Mark Rein is concerned though, as he notes:
“I was playing the PS3 build for a few hours tonight and it is really, really fantastic,” Rein posted on an internet forum. “It’s amazingly smooth and solid. I think you PS3 users are in for a huge treat with UT3.”
Hearing from the source that it’s playing well – as referenced by his playing a few hours – is always a plus. Couple this with the fact that some gaming sites are reporting that UT3 on the PS3 is running as smoothly – graphically and framerate wise – as a high end PC and could you have what may end up a late November/early December release?
If it looks as rosy as Mark paints the picture to be, it may just be the case. Add in the fact that Epic’s getting the Unreal 3 engine working well on the PS3 would assist other UE3 developers, and you have a serious bonus on your hands…
