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
. For the first-time ever, Ryan "Icculus" Gordon
(the one porting the Unreal Tournament 3 engine to Linux) has shown Unreal Tournament 3 running on Ubuntu Linux and Mac OS X.
Next to the screenshots he says "Seriously, there's no conspiracy...so stop sending me email suggesting that Microsoft is paying to block this." These screenshots were made available on his blog
last night. With Ryan finally talking about Unreal Tournament 3 now, it looks like the long-awaited Linux (and Mac OS X) client release may be imminent.
