Since December 20th of last year to January 31st, there has been over 50 mods that can be imported and are readily available for play on Unreal Tournament 3 for the PS3. Playable maps, game types, mutators listed after the jump.
Most of those mods are kick ass. I recommend that people download all of them, and try each one of them. Then delete they ones you don't like.
Can you transfer mods to people over the PS3 that dont have them? I mean not many people are going to get them off the computer.
how many full server are there ? a lot like warhawk... or close to none? O_o just wondering
that's the great thing about it! It's kinda like steam, if you don't have the mod (any kind, maps, mutators etc.) it'll automatically DL it! I've seen it happen and it's pretty cool. And @ above, all I can say is that I've never found myself not able to play a match that isn't full.
UT3 without mods is lame as hell. 360 only owners who are interested in UT3 better start making noise maybe msoft will listen so they can at least make an exception for epic because you guys will be getting only half a game in that case. I have seen so many 360 fans on here defend microsoft on their closed policy not that its wrong or anything if thats what works for them cool but when gamers are affected then its time to at least alter the strategy a lil bit. 360 owners tell msoft wat you want they should listen and stop being strong headed fanboys defending msoft aimlessly when you knw mods are wats up
FLAT Wars and Campground are cool, Also [email protected] has mods too but you need to have a membership (FREE!DNW) to access them. At Ut3mod.com you can directly download the mods to your PS3. You unfortunately need a thumbdrive (or other media) and can only import 1 at a time. However Epic, is working overtime on a patch to fix this.
Epic is a good company but they need to know where their priorities should be. They should be working on Gears of war 2 a game that will make them millions not on a patch for a game that has sold shamefully.
Epic have all right to develop a patch for this games. See, unlike some developers, the actually try to fix their games, if anything is wrong with it after it is release to the public to play.
Socomick, They need to cover their bases. Basically you are saying they should just leave the PS3 users and focus on the 360? -Bubbles bro. That's not only bad for business but also for customer loyalty. Let alone CLIFFY B has a team working on GeOW2 for months now.
Without Unreal Tournament and the eponymous engine that powers it, there'd be no Gears of War for them to work on. So their priorities are right where they should be.
Im just saying don't waste any more resources on a game that has failed to sell.
Failed to sell? The PS3 version sold almost twice as muchat the PC. Also keep in mind that about 70% of PS3 owners (360 as well) are playing Cod4. If Ut3 came out in Febuary like originally planned, it would of sold more. Most people have already maxed out in Cod4 (PS3) in prestige and are looking for something new. I believe that the Holiday launch (2 weeks before christmas) did more harm than good since Epic already missed out on black friday and the competition was rough.
It also didn't get any advertisement until after Xmas afaik. I didn't start seeing commercials for it until Jan, is it even out in Europe yet?
Its not even out in Europe or Australia yet so how can you say its failed? Epic needs to do exactly what its doing and thats looking after its customers. You're just being a bot like you always are. I know the idea of a company supporting software after release, but not nickle and diming people to death sounds weird to you, but thats the way Epic has always down things. Besides, we're just talking about a patch here. All the mods are made by users and are free to all. How can you have anything against that?
I find A lot of people are not downloading the mods. And basically sticking to the same maps
A lot of people don't even know that you can download mods for this game. They need to get informed fast.
Yea the community has begged for EPIC to make a fix to that. I was so dicouraged when someone had a new beta of a map and I got kicked out. That's why I DL final version of mods. It's a shame, but atleast the stock maps are interesting but some of the mods are better than the stock maps IMO. I made a thread at UT3.com/Sony blog to put up the mods on the PSN store. Thats would solve all the problems and get more people to buy the game.
the PS3 version of the game did not sway much PC gamers to buy the console. We all know PC gamers would of jumped on the MODS from day one. I still think UT3 doesn't or have not done quite well with the PS fanbase.(I'm not expecing GeOW types numbers) But they say sales are suppose to get hot when it comes out in Europe, we'll see. Besides that no other "big" regions are into American Shooters.
Didn't the PS3 version sell better than the PC?
Ever heard of PIRACY? You know what's really killing PC gaming..
ps3 version will also sell a million or more in its lifetime. The ps3 version hasnt launched in Europe . It will be launching this month and be very sure that ps3 version will outsell the x360 version atleast in europe Things have got better for ps3 and will get a lot better for ps3 in USA in 2008 dont forget that 95% of ps2 owners havent taken a next gen leap and most of these people were ps1 owners too. just wait for GTA4 to launch in USA and you will see the ps2--ps3 conversion at a massive rate
but as you can see, I was just stating something that seemed obvious with the PS fan and a PC gamer. Hell it's not even fact.. But some people quick to pull up PS3 numbers VS PC when we all know "Piracy" is killing the PC industry which leads to lack of sales. Devs do not get paid so you see sh^tty games. Yeah eventually people will upgrade but to say every PS2 owner will def get a PS3 is far fetched but your opinion again. Yes things are changing but, that was not my argument.
I added 5 mods last night and plan on putting more on tonight. I heard that this wont be a option for the 360 thats sad, because these mods are kick ass. Thanks for the guy putting them out
Epic and MS are still in discussion about mods on the 360. Epic's Mark Rein stated that they would at least release the best mods on live. Just not all of them. If it's like a lot of mods from past Unreal games, most will be anywhere from unbalanced to completely useless. So I'm not worried.
I swear you guys are in such a rush to defend MS on every single mistake they make. UCG for Unreal is the greatest part of the UNREAL universe. Just because YOU dont like 1 mod, doesn't mean there wont be thousands of users that will. So you shouldn't be limited to what Epic and MS decides is good for you as a gamer. You guys miss the point every single turn. "HERE IS UT3, but uhm. You cant choose which custom mods you want, or characters. Only the most popular ones that we decide are good for you." You guys rant and rave about Choice in Mass Effect, but when it comes to real life, you'd rather MS make the decisions for you.
Too bad the 360 version doesn't support mods. Oh well.
I am pretty sure Epic will release map packs (for free?) when the 360 version comes out. EDIT: @thehater I don't think EPIC could charge since the users who created the maps would get the final word. If the mod creators did get some of the pie for the new maps on the 360, I guess I found a new side job!
I do believe that Epic will release map packs containing the maps user made for the 360 version of the game. But will the be free? I don't know, because Epic wanted to release free maps for Gears of War, but MS charged users for them. That why Epic treated to release Gears of War for the PS3. But I hope the all users get these Maps for free, because the was made by users for users. Edit:Epic don't charge for Extra contents after their games has been release. It just with Gears of War, MS had the final word, and charge for contents which was to be free.
either way, they're definately are going to have map packs for the 360 version because the devs already said all the original maps from the PC/PS3 version can't fit on DVD.
Epic said in a recent interview that there will be atleast the Top Mod downloads (off XBL), but said it sux b/c microsoft will prob charge because its using their servers. But ya...Mods are a must in UT...without em? bleh...fun for a while but would get bored fast.
Well this is really cool and the map editor is only been out for a couple of weeks, give them time there will 1,000’s of maps before the summer.
Datz a ton of DLC.
Talk about high replay value!;)
I made a map but the ps3 version isn't working because I can't figure out how to name the files when I cook it for ps3.
Email Epic about it, or look on their forums. I am sure someone will be able to help you out. Edit: What the hell happen to 2 of my bubbles. I went from 8 to 6.
I dont know, Bubble @ ya. I know how they want me to name it , its just complicated since I can't test after I cook , I only have the PC version. My PC version works but Silverwolfe tested the PS3 vers for me it did'nt work for em. I gave up on it till I find someone to help me make sense of it.
cool il be sure to check them out when UT3 gets released here in the UK what kind of new game types do the mods hold?
there is a third person shooter mod, which is actually really fun.
Ya...it makes you think your playing a enhanced graphic'd Gears of War except no Bouncing running motion and cover system.
It is disappointing to see UT3 flop badly because they released it on the PS3, all these mods are worthless garbage if UT3 was released on the Xbox 360 first it would have sold over a million copies by now guaranteed. Moral of the story? you can't succeed without the power and success of the Xbox 360
you've been gone for a week and the best you can come up with is some BS and a couple of half-assed predictions? your posts aren't even funny anymore- wheres all that "superior hardware" sh!t gone? your a flop nowadays Zhuk
Wasn't the reason they released it first for the PS3 is because they couldn't get MS to open up their system to be more user creation friendly? Aren't they still debating this with MS? Didn't it sell a lot better on the PS3 than the PC? I don't mind people defending their consoles, but its ridiculous when they do it by making such one-sided arguments.
The PS3 is not the reason why UT3 doesn't do so good. It's a game called Call of Duty 4. COD4 is the reason why UT3 doesn't do so well. Every person is playing COD4. It's much more fun than UT3. I have them both for my PS3 and I play much more COD4. It has nothing to do with the PS3!
Over 50 Mods Now Available for UT3 on the PS3, and not a single one to be found on the BABOON BOX360.....AAHAHAHAHHHAHHAHA
Baboon box360 = bwahahahahahahahahahahahhahaa that's just classic, you are one funny focker.
nice trying them out now
I hope more devs are talking notes here. just think what it would have been like if valve made it so mods could be on the orange box on ps3/360.
yeah i expect nothing less than mods for every game by the end of 2008 endless free DLC is something to get hot and sweaty for imagine getting MGS4 and then a couple months later there is a mod that makes all enemies zombies and snake is a tellytubby- it would be a whole new game
You couldn't have said it any better zhuk! If only people on N4G was as articulate as yourself,things would be alot better around here.
Hardly anyone is playing this game online and no one is playing the mods Ps3 owners completely ignored this game
UT3 isnt even released in Europe (More PS3 dominated than NA). I know eventually it will hit atleast 1m sells. This is one of those games (like any good FPS)..people keep buying it for years (until UT4 is out) because its got the name Unreal Tournament and especially if they learn there is full mod support. When it comes out for the 360 with or without full mod support..I will guarantee it will sell alot of PS3 versions because if it doesnt have full mod support PS3 players will push to buy that version, but if it does have full mod PS3 users can still push that version. None the less Microsoft needs to be nice to prob their best Developer now since Bungie bought itself back. They should allow Full Mod support if they are smart.
My favriote mod so far is the jetpack mod. I get really high on suspense then you fake death its a lot of fun. try it if you can
game type is awesome. There are so many 2 choose from. Hey Zhuk have fun not playing free mods on your 360!! If any one wants to add me my PSN ID is SiriusRocks23.
lets show the world that UT3 is a great online game with all the mods and start buying the hell out of it.i play it ever day and night and its the best online game around!ONLINE MADNESS!!
it would take me hours to tell you how great this game is!all i can say is buy this game and cook the mods right thru the ps3 browser.its sooooo easy.just make a file on your pc and then your done .put the memory stik in pc and download it.then the ps3 and cook right from the site UT3MOD.COM!P L A Y B 3 Y O N D !
im just hoping this game comes to europe someday =(.
I just love campgrounds and think it's a map everyone should try!! =) For 2k4 that is..
I must say, coming from a hardcore pc gamer, i told myself i wasnt going to adopt FPS's for any console and a few other types of games like RTS The reason being was not having a real MOD community wich literally lasts years after a game has been released. But they are closing that gap between my profound love of PC's over consoles slowly and almost surely. Couple that with Keyboard and mouse support and Im ALL IN. I will be getting this for the ps3 eventually and just own 2 copies for 2 different reasons. The only thing I doubt I will see coming to consoles as far as PC > PS3 goes in the modding communty is Total conversions. What that is for those who dont know , is when a modder takes a game and completely changes everything or almost everything , ie: completely Change all or most sounds, textures, characters, missions , the story and the entire gameplay experience from the ground up based off of the underlying game engine and even edit the engine properties. That said , it really isnt as important as it use to be and you dont see much of it anyway anymore, i just wanted to say that , that ability wont be coming to consoles , anybody that played UT series Quake 3 , any of the grand theft auto series on pc know exactly what im talking about...... Say you beat GTA vice city got 100% game save, download a TOTAL CONVERSION and boom you literally have a brand new game amd experience. i hope rockstar follows in these footsteps , as the gta series definitly has one of the bigger modding communities out there.
