    As titled, just pointing out to you all UT3 is free this weekend on Steam, preloading should be available at the moment :)

    Whilst I know many are just going to shun the game, It's definitely worth checking out some of the mods that were released for MSUC.

    The Haunted and Jailbreak are the ones I like best. :cool:

    Jailbreak

    The Haunted

    The Ball and Prometheus are very highly rated too - nice puzzles :)

    I've got the disc for this somewhere, I'll have to dig it out.

    I really liked the gameplay but there weren't too many people playing it when I came to the party. Hope this changes that!

    So is this free to "purchase" or free just for this weekend?

    Will be free for the weekend, and has discounted purchase I believe :)

    That's UT3's main issue in a nutshell, loads of people like it, but because everyone hears no-one is playing it no-one plays it since they don't want to play on their own. If people with it just played it there would be loads of people online!

    Aww ok.

    I will probably be too busy with Aion/Batman and RE5 in the future.

    Thanks for the heads up. Just started downloading now, never tried it as I heard f-all people play it. But assumed loads would this weekend as it's free.

    If I remember rightly it just came out at a bad time, it really is UT by the numbers in the best possible way.

    Yeh it came out when COD4 was at its prime and around the same time as L4D didn't it?

    Hopefully this will get some people online, I bought it, but then dumped it as no-one was online...
