The Titan Pack for Unreal Tournament 3 can be downloaded today from the Playstation Store for free. The Titan Pack’s downloadable content includes:
- Two new gametypes: Greed and Betrayal
- The Titan mutator which allows players to transform into a 15-foot monster
- 19 maps
- The Link Station and X-Ray Field deployables
- The Stinger Turret and Eradicator Cannon weapons
- The Stealthbender vehicle
- The Slow Field power-up
- New characters Kana and Nova
Greed is a fast-paced, “tug of war” style mode in which you swipe the skulls of fallen players and unload them at the enemy base to score points. Silver skulls are worth a point, gold skulls represent five points, and red skulls are 20 points.
UT3 players can already enjoy the title update portion of the Titan Pack for PS3, which incorporates a long list of enhancements, including split-screen support, an integrated mod browser, 57 Trophies, major visual and menu flow upgrades, significant A.I. improvements, overhauled networking performance, and better mod support.
I spent all summer playing UT3 on Xbox 360 and think it’s one of the most underated FPS’s of all time. The only problem I had with the game was that nobody else played it and most games would have to fill spots with bots. The Titan Pack is only available on PC and Playstation 3. Epic Games has stated that they have no plans to release the new content on Xbox 360. Looks like I’m going to have to trade in my 360 version and get UT3 on PS3.
