100 Days & Counting For UT3 Linux Client

It's with much disesteem that today marks 100 days since the release of Unreal Tournament 3 and there still is no UT3 Linux client available or any word when it may be released. A port is being worked on and there has been a UT3 Linux server build, but any Linux (or Mac) demo/client has yet to be released. The UT3 v1.0 server was released to the public almost a month late.

Epic's Unreal Tournament 3 Linux client has been held up in legal problems, which we initially believed were related to the physics engine, but AGEIA said it wasn't PhysX. Ryan Gordon, the one responsible for the Unreal Tournament Linux ports, has yet to provide the Linux gaming community with any status update or respond to our inquiries. Last week though a v1.2 Linux server build was released.

If/when the UT3 Linux client ever becomes available or we have new information on the matter, we'll be sure to notify you. There is also an active discussion going on in the forums on UT3 for Linux.
