  • I would really love to see Epic do a UT3.5 or UT2009 or whatever like they did with 2004 coming from the dissappointing 2003. My suggestion would be get all of the UT3 issues patched up and fixed...get it rock solid and stable and tweaked really well...then do a UT3.5 or whatever with a shitload of new content (if you don't put a good bit of new content in, people will bitch that you're milking fans...and even with a ton of content they'll still likely bitch until the final product gets released and they enjoy it).

    Also if they went this route they'd really really need to release a demo for it showcasing its best features. UT2k4 wouldn't have been as successful if it hadn't been for its demo with Torlan. The UT3 demo really had the opposite effect, as it showcased all of UT3's problems without really showing the things it did well (I enjoyed the new Onslaught/Warfare mode...but the game had a lot of rough edges and just never took off). A ton of maps, several new modes (I'd say assault, bombing run, and perhaps some sort of space combat mod or something else...something that would really be crazy and give people something new to the UT series to play with), and just a lot of content in general and maybe a few new weapons...then give the people who bought UT3 a discount of some sort like UT2k4 did...I think doing all of that would work.

    I just don't see anyway to save UT3 at this point...even if all of its issues were fixed people wouldn't give it a chance at this point because they either wouldn't notice or simply because it wouldn't be "cool" to like this game even if it got much needed fixes.
