    In preparation for the massive update coming for Unreal Tournament 3, those who own a retail copy may now register it with Steam, free of charge.
    The latest installment in the legendary online action series from Epic will be updated automatically via Steam and introduce support for Steamworks Achievements (with over 50 Achievements), plus a host of new features and enhancements in AI, Server Browsing, Demo Recording, Mod Support, and more.
    For more information or to register your copy of UT3 with Steam, please visit steamgames.com

    Doing this now! This is really great, as now I don't need to save the DVD and can just redownload the game when needed (though I'll just save the DVD anyway). I wish that you could do this with all the games they sell on Steam (like COD4, Crysis, etc.).

    It was $10 on steam during the New Year sale. I wish I would have picked it up but I was a little low on the cash at the time.

    If there is going to be a update, I might as well throw it back on the computer! Love to play it with fellow TPU'ers

    ....I wonder if we may actually see the promised Linux client appear for the first time? I cannot believe how long this has taken.

    Uhh, have you seen the graphics of UT3 on high vs the graphics of UT2k4 on high? While graphics are hardly everything, I would not consider them "nothing." :rolleyes:

    Well, i wasn't talking about the graphics, they obviously did a overhaul on the graphics and it definitely looks better, but as for gameplay, idk UT'04 still feels better.

    04 > UT3 in terms of tactile feel and playability - it feels like a console port.
    graphics are a nothing when they make it feel like you're firing ping-pong balls at men in spacesuits..
    bring back characters that aren't GOW inspired :(
    also, I hate steam, and will always hate anything that has an 'always-on' policy.
