    The health vial sound is from 99, as you heard in the ps3 noob-play. I do wish that the DD makes a return to 99 as well.

    Yes, some sounds MAY be reused from UT99 and may be 2k4, if they have a nostalgic value. But even then, the sounds in UT99 were very low quality so I am sure that if they do include them, they will be using higher quality original source material and remastered.. Otherwise sound quality would be inconsistent.

    I stick to "placeholders" on most counts, since Epic themselves have stated that until very recently, things have been constantly iterated in terms of gameplay. Gameplay is worked on in house, sounds are hired out. The cost of hiring voice, sfx and other studio talent isn't cheap, so this is often one of the "final touch" sort of things. You don't want to have to do it more than once.

    They have also stated that many old assets including meshes and sounds are placeholders in previous interviews.

    Do I need to find a date for the video?

    Not placeholders in the new videos.

    Speaking of sound, does anyone know if UT3 will support custom soundtracks?

    I don't think they are place holders. Not this late in the project. Many of those sound like remixed/re recorded versions of the original UT/UT2kx sounds. they wouldn't do that if it was just place holders. Also, Unreal2 used sounds from UT in the retail product. UC2 also used some sounds pinched from Unreal 2!

    I think they re-used sounds from UT for people who were nostalgic about the original UT and felt ****** off at UT2kx!

    Once I can hear the sound effects, i'll be happy. UT2k4 had a problem of wimpy sounding weapons, not enough ambient/enviromental sounds and quiet as a mouse stealth vehicles!!

    Sounds communicate so much about the enviroment, the weapons, the feeling that they are almost as important to get right as visuals. They give the game atmosphere, tell you when a weapon is powerful and intimidating etc etc

    When A Darkwalker starts stalking around the map, I want to be able to hear it far of in the distance, marching ominously closer. If anyone has seen War of the Worlds (2005) they'll remeber that freak fog horn like noise the Tripods made when that drowned out all other noises- That was awesome.

    I hope the sounds are all new.. UT2004 sounds sucked (except the player weapon sounds) especially the vehicular sounds.. the vehicle weapons sounded soooo unbelievably weak, what worrys me is the manta seems to sound the same in the latest trailer silly pew pew pew sounds sounds like the sound a PC speaker makes, sounded kool in the E3 05 vid where it sat onto of the golioth

    I haven't really noticed any rehashed sounds from older titles, but honestly, if they're good, why change them?

    i would expect they are "place holders" as said. put it in the working demo for the pre release, and suprise people later. when you first play the demo release, it should be a total mind #$@*.
    actually, there are sounds i'd just-a-soon (sp?) leave the same .
    the power-ups like the DD, so i know what is going on

    your wrong champ, newer videos today i've heard reuse UT99 and UT2k4 sounds. The "Flag Alarm" is from the old UT99

    I think you're right. The video is from February 2007. But even so, why would they wait until the last few months of development to replace the sounds? How do you know they are not reusing any assets? where did you hear that?
