Epic has pressed the Go button on the huge DLC pack for the PS3 version of Unreal Tournament III - over a week earlier than previously announced.
The patch was delayed from its original March 5 release back to March 19, apparently owing to the certification process taking longer than expected.
Update: Apparently, the patch released doesn't have everything in the list below, namely the maps or the Titan Mutator - that's apparently coming in a second patch soon. The one live now has the trophies, split screen play and other tweaks. We've left a message with Epic for clarity on the matter. Update ends.
Things must have sped up though because, as Tawkn reports, the 93MB patch is now live and ready to be leeched.
Here's the list of added features:
16 environments - four Warfare, three vCTF, six Deathmatch, and three CTF maps - that are new to the PC and PS3 versions
Three bonus pack maps, CTF-Face, CTF-Searchlight and DM-Morbias
The namesake Titan mutator, which lets players overwhelm opponents as a 15 foot tall titan, or crush them as a 30 foot tall Behemoth
Greed and Betrayal, two gametypes that breed new-found fervor throughout the competitive UT3 arena
Two powerful weapons, the Stinger Turret and Eradicator Cannon artillery
Two valuable deployables, the X-Ray Field and Link Station
The Slow Field power-up, a portable version of the Slow Field deployable
Stealthbender, a new vehicle that carries two spidermine trap deployables, one EMP mine, and one each of the new Link Station and X-Ray Field deployables
Two new characters, Nova and Kana
57 awards attainable as Steam Achievements and PS3 Trophies
Broad improvements for PC and PS3: Significant AI enhancements, especially in vehicle gametypes; networking performance upgrades; greatly improved menu flow and UI usability; better mod support
Client-side demo recording, highly improved Server Browser, a new maplist system, plus mid-game mutator and gametype voting functionality for PC
High demand PS3 features including PS3 Trophy support, two-player split-screen support, and mod browsing
