New Xbox 360 Unreal Tournament 3 screens, game ships with exclusive Gears 2 vid

The better-late-than-never Xbox 360 version of Unreal Tournament III is almost here, currently set for an early July release. In anticipation of the impending launch, Midway has blasted over a few new screenshots from the game, and it’s looking decidedly like Unreal Tournament III — hectic and gorgeous.

Additionally, UK retailer Game (via CVG) has put up box art for the game, which proudly displays a sticker that says ““Exclusive Gears of War 2 video content on disc.” If the killer multiplayer and Xbox 360 exclusive content (maps, characters) didn’t do it for you, this video surely will. Because, you know, it’s not going to end up on YouTube two weeks before the game ships.

I went hands-on with Unreal Tournament III at Midway’s recent media event in Las Vegas, and not only did the game play well, but the little wiener hot dogs they were serving were to die for. Anyone planning on cooking up their own little cocktail weenies and firing up the ol’ UT III on the Xbox 360 this summer?
