Mark Rein confirms mods will be coming to Unreal Tournament 3 on 360

Talking to OXM at the Midway Gamers Day in Las Vegas, Epic president Mark Rein confirmed that the best mods will be available to players of the Xbox 360 version of Unreal Tournament 3, although details are still being worked out. "We know some of these great mods are going to play a role on Xbox 360, even if we have to get some people and bring them over ourselves," he said. "We'll figure it out."

The story is too old to be commented.

Sounds like they'll be putting a few of the better MoDs on Live. That's good of them, as long as they remain free.

so smooth just like doa4 only a few occasions have i experience lag when playing people in japan. I hope tekken 6 will be as good exp online.

Secondly this is great news i was so hoping that mods would be announced. Well done epic for coming up with a solution and not forsaking your fans that own 360's.

Split screen and mods who would have thought it? sweet.

Edit WHOOPS! meant to post in thread 2.

Statix3296d ago (Edited 3296d ago )

I kinda wonder what will be the extent of the selection mods that will be distributed through XBL. Could just be a couple of the major mods that don't violate any copyright regulations. I guess it would be a no-go and a big no-no to Microsoft/Epic to being able to play as Solid Snake or MC or any other unnofficial game character in the 360 version, or whatever mods that contain copyrighted stuff.

sonarus3296d ago (Edited 3296d ago )

Not probably statix. No mod support period. Their plan is to track down the best mods and make it available thru xbox live. I wonder if they will charge for them i truly hope not. Anyways the mods won't be as much as ps3 since it is not real mod support but it is better than nothing.

Sorry to sound so negative guys but this still isn't mod support but great job on epics part though for making those mods available. Already have it on ps3 so this news doesn't really affect me. Great job on epics part though. Lets just wait and see how much mod support 360 version will get

Hatchetforce3296d ago

Anyone that has ever played UT knows that this series has always been about user mods, maps, and mutators and now the major feature of UT history will not be freely moving onto the 360 and that called getting shafted.

MikeMichaels3296d ago (Edited 3296d ago )

Mark is using the 360 fanboys to help sell his game.

Pulling their little strings with comments like....it's gonna look a little better, we promise. Now it's, ummm...yeah, were going to try to put mods up...somehow. Even though it impossible to keep up with the scene considering all the red tape (ie certification and such) they have to go through for any type of addon pack.

He'll saying anything to get them worked up and its sad that allot of them will fall for it.

Just look at morons like Jason360...eating it up! hahahaha.

fenderputty3296d ago

It still suck that it's not full blown support but, it's better then just 5 extra maps. lol

sonarus3296d ago

Most 360 owners have already written the game off. No one likes a game that is late to the party.

Hatchetforce3296d ago (Edited 3296d ago )

People just do not get it. The 360 won't get most of the mods at all. Mark says they are coming but they are still trying to work the issue with MS. They haven't had a lot of luck there.

Remember when CliffyB said he wanted the Gears map pack to be free. Was it? Yes...after what, 6 months or so. You paid to get it when it mattered. If I were people I would save this page so you can remember some of the comments certain people here were stupid enough to make. It is going to come back and bite them in their dumb ass.

I read a comment by theMart, er, I mean Jason360 that said he could make mods and upload them to his 360. NO YOU CAN'T.

We read the article. You just do not know how mod support works. You can't upload mods to your 360 from your PC. You are going to have to get them over Live. MS isn't going to allow you to do what PS3 and PC owners can do. What part of that simple equation can you not grasp? Mod support isn't truly in the 360 version. What you are getting is no different than anything else you download as an add on for a 360 title...like Horse Armor.

Mod support is about free architecture and the 360 isn't getting that.

NO_PUDding3296d ago

Well, these mods won't come with the game. Becuase then you'd be paying for it. And that would be illegal.

It sounds like they are actually goign to hire soem of the mod creators to help them, becuase then he says "even if we have to get some people and bring them over ourselves".

Crazy dude.

marichuu3296d ago (Edited 3296d ago )

*deleted*

Megaton3296d ago (Edited 3296d ago )

I wonder which ones they'll be getting. There are tons of great mods and maps.

Snarf pack? Tiberium? Odysseus? Sharlow Street? Tokay Towers? Campgrounds 2k8? Siege Reactor? ...I could go on all day.

Glad to be a gamer3296d ago

the fact that Epic are using this as a solution is commendable. I am cynical as well as to how they will manage to update this regularly as the mod scene progresses. I suppose we will see how it goes

Only problem is with ninja gaiden 2,Mgs4 and gta4 round the corner i wonder if gamers will pick this up?

Hatchetforce3295d ago

And the support of MS is damnable. Microsoft touted user created content before the 360 launch. I have over 70 maps on the PS3. This is 360 owners getting less than they should. Far less.

We get mods, extra exclusive maps, and better graphics :)

skynidas3297d ago

and u got it 8 months later

Vip3r3297d ago

But no keyboard and mouse support. :)

Bathyj3297d ago

You still wont buy it. Just like no one bought Virtua Fighter 5.

MattFoley3297d ago

Not true there is an adapter.

marichuu3297d ago

@Jason
I bet you won't even be able to tell the difference as the game is too fast for details.

@happyjimmy
That comment tells me more about you than him.

@Vip3r
If I wanted keyboard and mouse, I'd be playing on a PC... they just don't belong on consoles.

@Matt
Yes, which Microsoft doesn't approve.

JasonPC360PS3Wii3297d ago (Edited 3297d ago )

FEAR, Lost Planet, Oblivion, The Orange Box, Stranglehold, Blazing Angles 2, GRAW, Condemned 2, Rainbow Six, Splinter Cell DA, Medal of Honor, Fatal Inertia, Sonic, TimeShift, and The Darkness?

Statix3296d ago (Edited 3296d ago )

You mean you got a few mods (probably just a couple new game modes and maps) that they select for you.

JasonPC360PS3Wii3296d ago

I can make a mod and distribute on Live, no matter how the process is done, I can still get my mod on Live. That would be called "mod support" no matter how you try and spin, if I can get my mod on Live then thats what it is.

Statix3296d ago (Edited 3296d ago )

No one knows the extent of the "mod support" in the 360 version, but I highly doubt it will be the same as the open architecture and system as the PS3 version, where anyone can download and install any mod they want. The mods have to be officially approved, sanctioned, and processed/reprogrammed by both Epic AND Microsoft's certification process before they can be distributed through XBL, which means you can say goodbye to playing with copyrighted assets/alternate game characters, or goodbye to some of the smaller, more obscure mods.

This is definitely not full-blown mod support like the PS3, for sure. This is more like Epic doing a favor to the disadvantaged 360 fans by porting a couple of the more major, popular mods that exist out there.

EDIT: And don't phantom-disagree with me just because I actually read the article, put up an informed, corroborated argument, and proved you wrong. You know who you are.

Soren the Cat3296d ago

Who needs mods, extra maps, and a better graphics? I don't even look at that stuff!

mistertwoturbo3296d ago

Seriously, the inconsistency is ridiculous. I could quote that UTIII "sucks" or "we'll be playing gears 2 instead" back when it first came out on the PS3. But now it comes out on the 360 all I see is "Yay, we have mods, splitscreen, and better graphics!"

I thought no one cared about UT III? I thought mods didn't matter? I thought all that was wanted was "5 official epic made" maps?"

Ri0tSquad3296d ago (Edited 3296d ago )

So it took them 8 months to get the feature...and whats your point again? Mark Rein is just trying give 360 owners a reason to buy a game PS3 owners have enjoyed months ago.

Jason360 continuously getting owned by the same garbage he spews out is becoming old news.

Homicide3296d ago

I'm gonna point and laugh if you need to pay for mods.

marichuu3296d ago

@Homicide
First you'll have to point and laugh at the ones who even buy the game :p
UT3 just isn't needed on the 360, Halo 3 is enough to keep the sci-fi fps fans happy. UT is just old and not fun.

Bad_Karma3296d ago

you aint getting mods unless microsoft put them on XBL plain and simple and there is no way on this earth that you personally are gonna be uploading mods to XBL unless you work for Microsoft which you dont AND if you do get mods ,enjoy paying for them lol coz if microsoft can make a buck out of you they damn sure will regardless of what EPIC wants . As for you extra exclusive maps ..lol .. how long do you think it will take someone to cook those for PC and PS3 ? (if they are worth it ) .

marichuu3296d ago

@2.16
Sorry to disappoint you, but Kane & Lynch just got a FREE addon on XBL :p

3296d ago
Bad_Karma3296d ago

Sorry but the only thing disappointing about that is that they actually made DLC for such a shyte game ... OFC the DLC for it is free .. the game should be too .

marichuu3296d ago

@2.19
Oh don't say that, if it was free I'd actually try the game xD

ScottEFresh3297d ago

PLEASE...this isn't the same thing as OPEN mods. You won't be able to d/l things off the net then just put it in with a USB stick. You'll have to WAIT just like your WAITING NOW until they "release" it on XBL. Awww too bad so sad...another gimped game thanks to the gimpbox 360.

Doctor Who3297d ago

another rubbish x-P.C reject game i DON'T want for my Ps3

Sony sucks balls3296d ago

KOJIMA JUST CREAMED IN HIS FACE AGAIN, " ITS NOT POWERFUL WHHHHHHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA AAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!

Hatchetforce3296d ago (Edited 3296d ago )

Exactly Scott. These idiots do not realize they will not get an inkling of what is available. They are so stupid they have not bothered to look at how the mods work, or considered the fact they are at the whim of someone else.

It's laughable and just another case of MS screwing customers while some of those custoers laugh and smile and ask MS to keep shafting them.

wow4u3296d ago (Edited 3296d ago )

@1.5

You're delusional. Putting these mods on the Xbox 360 isnt a technical problem. Every word on the matter has always been "we need to work out how, because we want to maintain high reliability and security for the consoles and LIVE".

They dont want rampant cheating and security threats -- AND NEITHER DO I.

It would be *TRIVIALLY* easy to write a mod that launched a DDoS (or other disaster) to some kind of trigger. How about writing random garbage to your EEPROMS?

I dont want that junk on my console. I have the ability to restatge my PC, so I'm not worried about such things on my PC, but a console is *not* a PC.

All that said -- MS isnt screwing anyone. They're using their heads, Sony is going to get kicked in the balls for this and when they do, I expect *YOU* back here saying how MS was right all along.

PSMonster213296d ago

If by mods you mean three maps epic selects to put on the marketplace for 10 bucks then wooo YOU GET MODS!!! HAVE FUN!

Pain3296d ago

wow talk a about hypocrites...then again u are Xbox fans ....

Hatchetforce3296d ago

Don't worry Pain. The bots are the same morons that were slobbering to get MGS4 on the 360. When common sense and repeated slapping by the facts began to make them understand it wasn't happening, they start attacking that game.

Now they are getting a title they once attacked when it came out. Funny how their tune changes. Talk about being two faced. They also understand nothing about PS3 security. They are immediately spooked by anything some MS rep has to say. ESPECIALLY WHEN THAT BS EXCUSE IS FOR NOT DOING SOMETHING THEY PROMISED BEFORE THE 360 EVER LAUNCHED.

One of the reasons I picked up a launch 360 was to get this wonderful feature MS was bragging about. User created content. Has it happend? No. Now what will they get. A few maps and mutators that MS selects for them? That isn't a piss in the bucket compared to what we run now on the PS3. We have so many maps we do not even play the ones that came boxed with the game. And you can forget about skins that MS deems to be not to their liking either. The mutators we use most often didn't come with the game either.

RealTimeWeaponChange3296d ago (Edited 3296d ago )

--Slobbering to get MGS? MGS4 looks like sh1t, Kojima said it himself. moron. ^ ^ ^ ^^ ^

---EPIC...F*CKING....PWNAGE.. .. IT's f*cking hilarious. Yeah, Live "cant" do mods. LMFAO. Right. Live destroys PSN. OF COURSE it can do mods, u morons. M$ just doesn't want any user made content f*cking anything up, n00bs.

Statix3296d ago (Edited 3296d ago )

For the very last time, THERE ARE NO MODS IN THE XB360 VERSION. If you would actually READ what Mark Rein is saying, and read the damn article, you'd realize that what he meant by "mods" is that they couldn't get Microsoft to allow the XB360 owners to freely install any mods they download, so they're doing a favor to the 360 fans by personally PORTING a COUPLE of the more popular mods themselves, by hand, and distributing them through XBL as downloadable add-ons (possibly for a price).

You people just DON'T GET IT: There are NO MODS FOR THE 360 version. What you'll basically end up getting, according to the words of Mark Rein, is probably around 5-6 extra game modes or so, and a couple new maps. This is compared to the 2000+ mods, maps, and characters that are available for free to the PS3 version of the game.

THERE ARE NO MODS ON THE 360 VERSION. Sorry to break it to the dyslexic 360 fans out there.

He is talking about maps that you will have to buy at the cost of 15 bucks per map because it has to be sold through Live!
