Enjoy.

For those wondering how it's gonna run...

Thanks for all the feedback guys!

A few comments: we're still working on player and pickup visibility - we're confident we've got a system that will address those issues well. We haven't fully implemented this system because we need to make sure all character skins and level lighting is finalized before we tweak it. We also have a very nice material based system for making it easy to pick out team colors on players and vehicles at any distance, where the red or blue is boosted based on distance. That way you get natural looking characters and vehicles up close, whose team is clearly distinguishable even at the furthest viewable distance.

Those machines [Quad-core Core 2's, SLI'd 8800's] are way overkill for the highest detail level - the only reason it wasn't turned on was because the option isn't exposed in the menus. We do all of our play testing on 2.5 year old systems with 7800s in them - that's our target medium detail (what you were seeing today) platform. Quad core doesn't help much for performance, but having a dual core machine is a big benefit.

Stinger primary fire is still a hitscan minigun, although that build has some issues with the tracers feeling a touch laggy. Stinger alt-fire is not hitscan, however.

good to hear about dual core.. but medium detail with 7800?... they are so vague.... you know the 7800GS is nothing compared to the 7800GTX 512MB... and what does way overkill mean?

They probably mean 7800 GT and they also probably mean that the Quad Core + SLI rig is not at all required to run the game at max details. It was super smooth in the video, looks nice!

So I'm walking by the Maximum PC Booth at Comic-Con today and I see a big crowd of people around some guy...I figured they were giving stuff away so I walked over...Turns out he was picking people to play UT3...I didn't raise my hand for the first few minutes because I suck at FPS's (although I enjoy them)...He was slow at picking people so I was like, what the hell...I'll give it a go...I raised my hand and I kid you not, right away the guy says "The guy in the gray shirt"...I looked around and he said "Yeah, you..."...

So I got to play a round (I said I sucked, it was first to 25 frags, and I got 13!! LOL) It was really fun to play and I enjoyed myself...The graphics were nice and crisp, but I personally would have hoped for more from the UE3 engine...Performance was AWESOME on those machines...I would have to guess between 50-60FPS with ZERO slow down...It ran super smooth...Had I thought there would be any new games to be played there, I would have brought my camcorder...

I guess I'll have to practice up on my FPS skills so I can play with you guys, because that game is a BLAST!!!

I also got to play a bit of Pirates of the Burning Sea (SOE MMO) and also got to chat with the devs about "The Agency" (a new SOE spy MMO)...I'm a bit beat at the moment, but tomorrow I'll post my thoughts on those 2 in the MMO section (BTW, The Agency is using UE3)...

Yeah, from the sound of it they were not running the game completely maxed out. Considering how Gears looked at the Microsoft press conference at E3, I have faith that the game will be absolutely stunning when maxed.

This is on a 7800 card? That's pretty impressive.

The gameplay looks very "meh" to me, though. It's like UT 2004 with better graphics but nothing else that's appealing at all. Running around shooting random people in boring environments isn't exactly my idea of a fun game. I guess those who are into DM will love it though.

Nope this is on Quad Core Intel with 8800 SLI.

OH ok I thought that article was related to the video.. my bad.

It is. They're playing the playtest version of the game, which is at a lower resolution with medium textures etc. But they said the machines they were on were overkill even for the game at highest settings.

That's how all the UT games have been. A few new game play modes here and there but more or less sticking to the same tried and true formula. I guess if it ain't broke, don't fix it.

I got big into the first UT game but none of the others. They're fun I guess but it gets boring and repititious fast. I'll get it no doubt about it but I imagine that Bioshock, Crysis and GOW will last much longer on my hdd.

To the guy who got a chance to play, did you notice any mouse lag?

Heh actually so far UT3 seems closer to UT99 then 2k4.

2k4 broke the gaming formula.

Bigger maps, wall dodging, double jumping, double dodge.

All the maps were huge and you had to squint to hit people.

The scale seems better now. Also the weapons seem to be harder (like UT99) they were a bit too easy in 2k4.

If this is more like UT99 UT3 looks nice.

You mean low FPS?

There was virtually no lag at all...As I said above, it ran smooth as silk... :)

not really FPS lag, but very low mouse response to your movements no matter what or how you setup your mouse in game or in the OS.

This game is supposed to be playable on a controller right??? Looks very fast like the usual UT games... I couldn't see a PS3 controller player being able to play very effectively against a PC KB&M...

That's normal UT speed. That's the main reason as to why i love UT, you have to rely on instinct and reaction times to get anywhere. Hesitate or take your time, you're nothing but a smear on the wall.
