PS3 UT3 Mod Tools Expected Next Week

The update to the PC Unreal Tournament 3 editor that will enable modders to convert their user-created content to be compatible with the PlayStation 3 edition of the game is expected to arrive next week.

Though the functionality has not been released to the general public, it has been operational since late December. At that time, developer Epic converted and released a number of user-produced maps and game modes for use with the PS3 version of UT3.

"If all goes well then we should see the update released next week which is what I expect will happen," Epic VP Mark Rein wrote on the developer's official forums. "Obviously the process works, as we put out a few mods before Christmas and people seem to be playing them, but it is the update to the editor that we're testing."
