UT Assault Bonus Pack
7:44 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story

A new group is about to unveil a bonus pack for those fans of the Assault game type featured in the first-person shooter Unreal Tournament. Even those that don't like Assault maps might want to give the update a try, as it will fix many 'quirks' when it is released. Over the next seven days, the new site dedicated to the pack will be giving out details on the different maps and features to be included in this free download. Here's a clip from the site:

The main goal with the bonus pack is to enhance Assault. Consider it a much-needed update for Assault. That game type has great potential, but some problems have harmed it severely, so I kind of adopted it with Epic's blessings to unlock its full potential. Upgrading using the bonus pack will fix Assault and make it really playable for all kinds of players. It doesn't matter if you're a rookie, veteran, or experienced in other game types, with the bonuspack, you can play Assault the way you want. Another shortcoming of Assault was the limited map selection, only seven maps, and even those have serious flaws that could ruin the game quickly. Not only does the bonus pack fix all of the known map bugs in the original Epic maps, it also includes seven custom maps, stressing quality over quantity. Assault maps are very hard to make, so to ensure highest possible quality, I only accepted levels by critically acclaimed designers for the initial release of the bonus pack. The bonus pack will include some old classics as well as some new favorites. All of the maps and features will be explained here during the following week until the bonus pack is released.
This sounds like a very ambitious goal, but we look forward to see what they're able to do with Assault. It seems like they have Epic's blessing, so let the Assault commence!
