Unreal Tournament 3 Previewed
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | 6 comments

Computer and Video Games recently posted a preview of Epic Games' eagerly awaited Unreal Tournament 3, the latest entry in the Unreal Tournament first person shooter series. The game will feature the fast paced multiplayer action fans of the series have come to expect as well as a campaign mode for fans of single player games.

Epic estimate that roughly half of the people who bought UT2004 never took it online, preferring instead to take on Epic's brilliant bots. For that group, they're adding a campaign mode that takes place across a large number of the multiplayer maps, where you and a team of three AIs will take on a server full of bots. It's slightly more involved than their previous singleplayer addition in UT2004, which took place in a tournament setting.

The campaign is made up of a series of fights on a branching mission tree, where you choose a fight - say, picking a side mission that'll net you a bit of Necris technology. The choices you make will affect future missions as well, so there's a slight layer of tactical decision-making to it all. For those of us who do want to play with people, you can replace the teammate bots with up to three other people on the fly, and take on the missions co-operatively.

Back to multiplayer: there's a new mode, Warfare, which is a mash-up of the old Onslaught and Assault modes, where two teams are fighting over linked nodes. There are only two nodes live at any point, in order to force the teams to clash over them. The ultimate goal is to get to the other team's power supply, using captured nodes to your advantage. They may give you extra vehicles or provide a spawn point for the orbs - the powerful globes that make capturing further nodes easier.
