    Default UT3 beta demo coming soon

    Folks,

    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.

    Once upon a time someone on one of our forums asked me if I'd tell him if one of the UT demos was within two weeks and I said "it is more than two weeks away". Somebody misread that and decided I said it was two weeks away - which I didn't because at the time we had no idea when it would be out. So me saying "two weeks" became some sort of urban legend I will probably never live down.

    However in this case I *expect* the demo will be out within two weeks. Could be as early as this week but you never know what new bug will turn up that delays it a few more days but two weeks, in this case, feels pretty safe to us.

    creating a game: $1,000,000

    distributing a game: $500,000

    Pulling the old 'two weeks' line: priceless.

    having said that: w00ty!

    now we see how well a single core CPU can play it...
    Is it ok for you to release the names of the maps included in the demo? Or any more information (ie 1xCTF, 1xDM, 1xWAR)

    And also what we can expect for contents (supported game modes and number of maps, mainly)?

    This always reminded me of a gag in "The Money Pit" with Tom Hanks. When they'd ask when the repairs for their house would be finished everyone always said "Two Weeks". The repairs weren't done for a good 6 months. OK, got that over with. This is great, its coming!

    All figures times 10.
    I realise, just wanted round figures in there that didn't really make people think I'd researched it (not that I didn't try)
