Midway And Epic Release UT3 Map Pack

Today, Midway and Epic Games have revealed brand new downloadable content for Unreal Tournament 3, which is great news for fans of the award-winning FPS.

Three new arenas are included in this content, which is available now: Morbias, Facing Worlds and Searchlight. All you have to do log on to the PlayStation Network and download these great new battlegrounds, and here's the best part- the arenas are free. The game may have shipped with 40 maps last year, but since then, hundreds of user-created mods have been published and made available to gamers. Epic always said the biggest appeal of the PS3 was its Network capabilities, and the opportunity to deliver the most comprehensive "modding" package possible. UT3 players are learning about this firsthand, and they're delivering a ton of new user-generated content on a consistent basis.

As for these arenas- Morbias "is the deathmatch arena that started it all, perfectly suited for anything from small intense duels to chaotic free-for-all matches." Facing Worlds is another UT classic; it was a popular haven for all sniper lovers, remember? Searchlight is a new map designed specifically for Capture the Flag, and boasts "z-axis rooftop runs and strategic indoor gameplay." All three are welcome additions to the UT3 universe, that's for damn sure. Go get 'em!

It is a bit tricky, but after the new patch released last week, you have to place them on the "root" of your memory device (you had to create a specific path of maps before). You must install those downloadable maps one at the time, then go load the UT3 game, go in "community" and then "my content". Hit Square button and search on the memory device.
Good luck.
