First UT3 PS3 Mod Released

Unreal Tournament players have been used to the user-created mod scene for years now, and that’s no secret. Considering the fact that Unreal Tournament in it’s most base form has always been a PC-only affair. Sure, consoles got versions of Unreal Tournament, but the best representation of Unreal Tournament on a console to date is Unreal Tournament 3.

Today marks a serious milestone, not only to gamers in general, but specifically console gamers. Today, Epic Games’ Mark Rein announced in the official Unreal Tournament 3 forums that the first user-created content ever to grace a console hits today for the PlayStation 3 edition of UT3. Here’s some of what Mark had to say:

Epic Games is proud to take the first bold step in a new era! Today we’re releasing the very first user-created content for Unreal Tournament 3 on PlayStation 3.

DM Shrine: 2-6 Players

We’re starting with a user-created map called DM-Shrine created by Thomas Browett, who goes by the name Setheran on the official UT3 forums. Thomas is a 23 year old graphic designer from Nottingham, England. He’s been playing Unreal since the very first Unreal Tournament and he says he’s enjoyed every game in the series. He made a few maps for the original Unreal Tournament but hadn’t done anything since this one. He finds the third generation Unreal Editor to be very friendly and feature rich.

DM-Shrine is is a great little map that’s perfect those close-quarters, 2-6 player, matches that keep your adrenaline pumping from beginning to end. A lot of our DM maps in UT3 are designed for larger player counts so this provides a great contrast and a chance to play in a more intimate setting. I’ve always loved these types of maps and I hope you folks do as well!

Here is how to install UT3 mods on your PlayStation 3.

1. Unzip the file to the root directory of any memory card that is readable by your PlayStation 3. It is already in the proper directory structure but, just in case, the path and filename need to be: ps3\savedata\blus30086-modimport\userdata.jam

2. Boot up Unreal Tournament 3 on your PS3

3. Go to the “Community” menu

4. Choose “My Content”

5. Press the [SQUARE] button to “Import Mod”

6. Follow the directions on the screen to import it from your memory card.

Once imported you’ll be able to see the map in your list of Deathmatch maps. You’ll be able to host the map and join servers that are hosting the map. All UT3 mods install this same way. If this were a mutator it would show up in the mutator list. If it were a gametype it would show up in gametype lists, etc.

This is just the first little taste of modding on Unreal Tournament 3 for PS3.

DM Shrine’s Arches

Epic didn’t make this map. Thomas did and he already released it for PC users of UT3. We didn’t do any editing or changes to it. All we did was bring it into the editor and “cook” it into the proper format for the PlayStation 3 and tested it to make sure it ran properly and was good fun. We’re waiting on some paperwork from Sony that will allow us to release an editor update so mod creators can do this cook process for themselves. We expect to have that very soon.

Tomorrow we’re planning to release some more user-created content: a mutator, a couple more maps, and a new game type!

Welcome to the future. I’ll be installing this map shortly, so if you want to give it a go and have a frag or two, download the map here: DM Shrine on FileFront. My PSN name is DeejayKnight as well, so if you’d like to attempt to frag me this is your chance!

The final tools haven’t been updated just yet, but Mark Rein himself later in the thread alluded to the patch being done:

Thanks! Hopefully the paperwork will get completely pretty quickly and mod makers will be able to do this themselves.

Oh yea. It’s already started, but this opens the floodgates for a whole new generation of game mods… All the mod-makers need to do is ‘cook’ the mod for the PS3 as well once the patch is out, and you can play any PC mod on the PS3.

May the games begin…

    Talk about opening up the floodgates, once PC users can cook this themselves the mods are going to be flying in left and right.

  5. Americans are an accommodating people. We have been more than patient with the scum that accuse us of every evil that they themselves perpetrate. The so-called elites have had their run pounding us with the stick of multiculturalism and tolerance while we die by the thousands and watch our way of life being eroded by mass immigration of people who refuse to assimilate and expect us to accommodate their cultures and support them on welfare. While we are being taxed to death to support them, we are losing jobs to them and watching incomes decline due to competition for jobs.

    OMG, if you wanna go where drama belongs. Check this. When Tila Tequila entered middle school, she developed a “tomboy” attitude and got into a lot of fights. She eventually was sent to a boarding school for 6 months before transferring schools again. In high school, Tila started using her sister’s identification cards to get into nightclubs and bars where she began drug abuse and joined a gang. I kind of feel bad for the girl, but she does love the attention, let me tell you. It is no surprise that she is stuck in a sex tape controversey.
