Unreal Tournament 3 Getting A “Major Expansion”

20 10 2008

As posted on Joystiq:

Epic’s VP Mark Rein has put to rest any notion that Unreal Tournament III is one of Midway’s underperforming licensed titles soon to be dropped by the publisher. Rein tells Gamespot that Epic’s deal with Midway isn’t a licensing deal, but a publishing agreement, adding that the company is currently working on a “major expansion” that will “excite and grow” the customer base. He wouldn’t give any further details on the expansion and whether it was a standalone product or DLC.

Although UT3 has taken a backseat to Epic‘s flagship franchise, Gears of War, Rein states the multi-platform FPS has sold a million units worldwide.

When UT first came out, I was not that impressed or that big of a fan for it.  But, I decided to give it a try again after I played Gears…now I really really like it.  It’s very fast paced and if you know the maps really well, you can pretty much go untouched.
