'Major expansion' coming for Unreal Tournament III

9:03 AM on 10.21.2008 // Nick Chester

Amidst Midway's financial woes, the publisher recently announced it would be axing two of its games based on IPs. Apparently, one of them isn't Unreal Tournament. Speaking to GameSpot, Epic's Mark Rein clears things up, and then drops a hint on the series' future. 

"Our arrangement with Midway isn't a license, but rather a straight publishing agreement, and Midway is still very much the public of Unreal Tournament 3," he said. "In fact, we're working together on a major expansion that we expect will excite and grow our UT3 customer base."

Unreal fans, sorry for the tease -- Rein reveals no other information, declining to comment on whether or not it would be a standalone product or downloadable content. Also unknown is whether the content will ship for all of the platforms the game shipped on -- PlayStation 3, PC, and Xbox 360. Of the three, one -- the Xbox 360 -- got the shaft on user-generated content. I'm sure at least they're clamoring for some new Unreal Tournament III gameplay.

Finished playing the fan localization for Ace Investigations 2. These guys did a fantastic job, despite this game having the single most convoluted plot in the entire series. Here's hoping that somehow, someday, Great Ace Attorney will get this treatment.

Anyone else getting massive lag in between games of the Battlefront Beta? I'm running an AMD rig so it might be that but just want to know it's not just me.

Plague Knight is pretty rad, even when represented by mediocre artists [img][/img]

Initial impressions: Chibi-Robo Zip lash is pretty damn fun so far. It's like Mr. Mosquito + Castlevania + Umihara. Controls are spot on, platforming is actually very solid so far, and the characters are about as charming as they can get. +amiibo.

Question: Is resident evil nemesis supposed to start off with a toolbox that has (unlimited) ink ribbon, 250 handgun ammo, magnum (w/ammo), shotgun (w/ammo) and two assault clips, in the first room of the game?????

BREAKING: Inner city man and "Pokemon Go" enthusiast found dead after entering rival gang's territory. "All he wanted was a Shiny Charizard!" according to an interview with a close friend. "We found him on the street, limp as a Magikarp stuck on a beach."

I completely forgot that Castlevania: Dawn of Sorrow had an animated opening. Other than the compression, it actually looks really good today, and makes me wonder why Konami didn't commission some sort of Castlevania anime. That would have been sweet.

Gamestop has Splatoon amiibo up, if that's your thing. Totally didn't order and just cancel mine.
