Phoronix: 9 Months And Still No UT3 Linux Client
It's been exactly nine months (or 274 days) since Unreal Tournament 3 for the PC was released. It was also exactly one year when we confirmed that UT3 would be released for Linux via a posting by Epic's VP, Mark Rein.However, last November when it was time for this much-anticipated first person shooter to be released, the Linux demo was MIA and the UT3 Linux server was promised in time for the game's release...
It goes without saying that this has been handled badly. I can't imagine what's taking them so long. Maybe they're trying extra hard to make sure everything is right. It would be nice for a piece of commercial Linux software to get that extra bit of QA that is so often missing but still... 9 months? I'm glad that there's still at least a glimmer of hope. In any case, I won't be able to play it until the Radeon R600 driver is ready.
This is a lot like how they promised a demo for the original Unreal but never delivered.
At least I don't think they did.
I'm still rather bitter about that.
Do we care? Are we caring about this now?
I played the demo on windows. It's unremarkable in every way.
Probably it is not coming at all. There should be a demo or something at least.
My very personal opinion is:
If they don't want to make client for me, i'll not pay for the game.
I played demo on windows, it was nice, but i wont reboot to play it.
ET and ETQW providing enough online fun.
Erm... you get things into the tree? Didn't manage this so far. Had to put my stuff in the Sunrise overlay ( pigs! )
