Unreal Tournament 3 : DLC coming next Month (for PS3 and PC owners, that is)

ut3-logoMidway and Epic Games have officially confirmed that the Titan Pack is coming to  Unreal Tournament 3 for the PC and PlayStation3 on March 5, 2009. There is no word on whether the Xbox 360 version – neutered by Microsoft’s draconian views on user generated content – will be receiving the DLC.

Ushering in new features, characters, units, vehicles, maps and game modes the Titan Pack comes at the very best price – Free!

More details -  courtesy of a Midway Press Release – on the gratis goodies after the jump!

For those of you who like objective based gaming, The Titan Pack adds 57 goals, in the form of Steam Achievements on PC, and Trophies on PS3.

In addition to 11 new multiplayer maps for Deathmatch, CTF, Vehicle CTF and Warfare modes, eight popular maps from the first UT3 bonus pack and Xbox 360 version, two new game modes will be added : “Greed” a “tug of war” style kill points battle, and “Betrayal” a cutthroat style of play where alliances waver and teams can shift through a match.

The new X-Ray deployable field can be used to lay waste to foes since enemies inside it are extremely vulnerable, while the Link Station, a temporary repair unit, can be deployed to keep vehicles in top fighting condition.

The Stealthbender comes equipped with a Link Station, an X-Ray Field, spidermine traps, and an EMP mine, but what makes this new vehicle especially lethal is its underlying Necris stealth technology, which renders it invisible for surprise attacks.

Nova and Kana are two new playable characters added to the roster of death-dealing guns for hire in Unreal Tournament 3.

The singularly most interesting (and likely most annoying) addition is that of the Titan mutator – where fragging enough enemies turns you into the almighty Titan, a 15-foot tall maestro of wholesale carnage that has the effects of every Power Up in the game… ALL AT ONCE!

Any of you still playing this game? Keen for the new bits?

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
