    Phoronix: Unreal Tournament 3 Running On Linux

    For those Linux gamers that have been waiting almost a year to play Unreal Tournament 3, it looks like that day is finally getting close. Earlier this week Jeff Morris from Epic Games had confirmed on our forums that the UT3 Linux release will include their in-game UnrealEd Editor program...

    Yeah! The nice side effects of waiting so many months are:
    -retail game is cheaper,
    -computers upgraded or cheaper to get.
    I'm waiting to buy it!
    P.D. I still want to know what Ryan means when he said that we would not believe the reason of the delay.

      Yeah, same here !
      I'll just jump on a new computer and a copy of the game as soon as the linux client is out...
      I would have get a Q6600 with some 8800 GT a year ago. Now, I can get a Q9550 with a HD4870 for the same price, and the hope of having within a year an open-source driver to play UT3.

        I can't believe my eyes :O Armageddon is coming

        Now I have another reason (a very good one ;-) ) to replace my 8600GT with HD4850

            Not throwing away my 8 8600 GT either, because I just put it in my computer 2 weeks ago!

            Now, when UT 3 Comes out: Bloody multiplayer carnage! Slaughter, yeah!

              "Seriously, there's no conspiracy...so stop sending me email suggesting that Microsoft is paying to block this."

              That's great to hear! If only other companies would put out official statements to clarify that..

              I hope google buys valve. Can you imagine if gamers could all migrate to linux with only a steam install?

                because they had to make sure that there was any kind of market after the start of LHC :]

                        Some good news. Still not going to lay down a penny until I can fill the deep, lonely void of my gaming anemic hard drive with native Linux bits. But on that day, what is considered old and tiresome by the rest of the gaming world shall become new and fresh to me.

                          That last picture doesn't involve me either.

                          My guess is that the drivers needed improving first anyway. Further more, hardware is a lot cheaper now so I'm not really phased that it's late. I will still get to play it which is more important.

                          PS: Ryan, how do we know that you were paid to put that up those screenshot teasers? :P Haha ~Jokes~

                          Plus how could I not miss that someone is coding a "mojoshader.c" But regardless that UT3 has lost some of it's mojo. I'm still keen on seeing it on linux.

                            Great to have a guy like Icculus!

                            I'll buy UT3 when the binaries are ready, but I doubt I'll play much online.. I will be using most of the time running around the levels, looking at all the content Epic's artists put into it!

                            Also, I love realtime OpenGL engines

                              Heh... FINALLY getting to see Linux version. Damn, I wish I knew what in the F*** it was that delayed it nearly a year.
