When Will UT3 For Linux Be Released?
Phoronix: When Will UT3 For Linux Be Released?
Tomorrow will mark eleven months since Unreal Tournament 3 was released in the United States. Originally this Epic Games title was supposed to be available for Linux shortly after its release and then it became a matter of it will ship when it's ready...
I hope it will be ready for x-mas... along with working fglrx for ubuntu 8.10 ;-)
It will be released shortly after Duke Nukem Forever ...
@Tares: What's wrong with FGLRX? You mean the open source drivers? I've been running the binary ATi drivers and have no problems (except for some weird direct draw issues).
I think UT3 has more chances of being released than DNF
Check the 'ati 8.10 beta in ubuntu' thread.
Oh wow, I didn't even read that properly. But in the meantime the final Ati 8.10 driver has been released so I don't see why it shouldn't work in the final Intrepid release.

I've been sitting very quietly and being very polite, primarily because Svartalf asked me to very nicely.
That said, I have zero confidence in the 'fact' that UT3 Linux will ever be released, much less any kind of timeline. Epic doesn't owe me anything, but I will certainly take any announcements of future releases with quite a lot of salt.
I bought the Collector's Edition three days and I can tell things I noticed 1st hand:
-performance is good,
-login problems sometimes
-few servers for each game mode,
between 50-150 on most of them, but very few populated or good enough ping.
I joined yesterday a high ping one (around 170 ms in the browser) but once ingame the ping was around 100, so ping in browser may be wrong more times.
Also, most of the players owns noobs like me very easily (too much experience over me, even without counting other UT games)
-Video tutorials for editor (main reason for buying while waiting the client) are very good, but only in english without subtitles
To be honest, this news item seems a little pointless. Where's the news? No one but Ryan Gordon or someone at Epic could possibly say anything useful at this point.
typo - shouldnt "we finally seen" be "we finally saw"
It's just a poll.
