Unreal Tournament is back. The big, badass game that started on the PC and paved the way for shooters like Halo and Killzone has returned to both the PC and the PS3, but rumor has it that it will make it to the 360 sometime this year. The Unreal franchise is developed by Epic Games, the same company that brought gamers last year's phenomenal hit, Gears of War. If anyone knows their way around a battlefield and how to create an amazing arsenal of weapons, it's these guys. Unreal Tournament 3 is filled with a variety of weapons and vehicles that are sure to obliterate opponents in dozens of dastardly ways, and who doesn't want that?
The key to Unreal Tournament 3 is that it keeps the essence of the original game, weapons and favorite characters that fans love and want to see, but builds on that to introduce new characters, weapons, upgrades and game modes. There is nothing about Unreal Tournament 3 that is understated or small-it's all about huge guns, bigger explosions and more carnage than ever before. Unreal Tournament has "graduated" from being a mere fighting event to becoming a full-on battlefield using a combo of handheld weapons and wicked vehicles to take on enemy forces. Favorite game modes like Death Match and Team Death Match return, and to keep the "old and new" theme going, a new game mode entitled "Warfare" debuts. Also added to the franchise is a new single player campaign that pits gamers against the Necris for a full-on battle for domination and victory throughout the game. Those who plan to get the PC version of Unreal Tournament 3 will also get the tools necessary to make your own levels, your own games and the ability to download the latest mods for even more new stuff. If you haven't entered an Unreal Tournament in the past, there is no better time than now to get on board and into the hardcore action that awaits, and once you do, you'll wonder why you waited so long.
