Unreal Tournament 2004 Mac Demo Today (Update #3)
11:34 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story

A new article posted at GameSpy today looks at the Unreal Tournament 2004 demo and hints that an IRC chat this morning may bring the official announcement. This follows a prediction from Epic's Mark Rein two weeks ago that said the demo would be ready in "two weeks."

The Mac build of the demo is expected out shortly after the PC version, thanks in large part to the work of Epic's Ryan Gordon. Here's what GameSpy expects is happening:

However, it now appears that Epic and Atari are ready to make good on that promise. Although the specific time and date are yet to be revealed, GameSpy has learned that Epic is set to make an announcement regarding the UT 2004 demo around 9AM PST Wednesday morning, and everything seems to be pointing towards an imminent release, possibly as early as Wednesday afternoon.
We'd recommend users enter the official Epic IRC chat room to see what the announcement might be, or stay tuned to IMG's news page for the latest.

Update: Epic has just confirmed that the PC and Linux demos of Unreal Tournament 2004 will be released today at 12 PM Pacific. We are still waiting word on the Mac version. Stay tuned!

Update #2: A helpful reader from sent in a quote from Ryan Gordon, confirming the Mac version should be out today as well. When asked if the Mac demo would be made available today, Gordon responded:

Yes, it will. The Mac version is going through last-minute sanity checking right now, and then going to mirrors. It might be out at the same time as Windows, but it might lag by an hour or so.
Keep an eye on IMG (and sister-site MGF) for more as it comes in.

Update #3:The UT 2004 Demo will be available at 6 PM Central on IMG Pro and
