    Any idea when the Mac version will come out? Will it be this year or... :eek: 2009 :(. Also will the online be with PC users?

    Since you could play UT2004 against pc users(at least through LAN) I am sure you will be able to for UT3 as well, I have a hard time imagining that people releasing games these days for pc and mac won't let them play together online. though i am sure there are some technical reasons for some games why they can't. as far as release date.....hopefully before christmas...but who knows for sure.:apple:

    No date has been given for either the Mac or Linux version of UT3, although I think it is safe to assume early 2008, depends how fast Icculus/Ryan Gorden is working on it.

    The UT series has always been 100% cross-platform compatible and it would be downright stupid of Epic not to do it for UT3, they have no reason not too. It's pretty much guaranteed to be playable with the Windows people from the Mac version.

    Oh I can't wait to get my MacPro to play all these old school games again. Miss them so very much.

    I haven't been following Ryan too closely lately so I'm a bit behind.

    I do know he has been working on the Linux version (and subsequently the Mac version) for quite some time now. Once he gets the Linux version of it done it is easy for him to bring it to the Mac.

    If we're lucky we could see it before 2008, the full game and maybe the demo rather soon. There is a working UT3 Linux server already as is, not too far from getting the full client done after that part.

    I would have expected Quake Wars long before UT3, but it's a tough call :)

    When UT2k4 came out, the Mac version was released only 3 weeks later... I gotta go 2k7 on this...

    I don't think the Mac version will come out too much later than the PC version. I look forward to buying it.

    I installed the Windows demo via Boot Camp, and Wow. The game runs pretty well, and the effects, gameplay, and graphics are all top-notch. I'm just happy UT is back! :D

    Here's the Windows version of the demo if anyone is interested. It's a 741 MB download. Also if you are installing this on an external or secondary drive you need about 2+ GB free on your C drive due to the temporary files it extracts. ;)

    Isn't Quake Wars being ported by Asypr? Quake Wars is id software, not Epic..so can you really compare when you would except it to a completely different game and company?:apple:

    EDIT: I'm not trying to make an argument, I just am wondering if that is what you meant to say, and if you did, if you really thought about it first...

    Hey, I was searching Google for any news or rumors on the status of UT 3 for the Mac and came upon this old thread. I don't post here that much, but I've been coming here for years and read many pages of comments on the front page stories.

    Anyway, I was just wondering if people have heard ANYTHING about what the hell is going on with this game. Last official update we have on the MacSoft website (www.destineerstudios.com/macsoftgames/) is that it was supposed to come out in Spring '08. Well, summer is now almost over and no update at all on its status. I'm getting really worried about this game. I'm sure a lot of people have probably already just bought the Windows version, but I really try hard to support Mac gaming development, and was holding out for a Mac version. I downloaded the Windows demo (running Boot Camp on a MacBook Pro with WinXP), and it's awesome. I'll hold out for the Mac release for a bit longer, but it's getting ridiculous. If the game isn't out for Mac by the end of this year, I may just have to break down and get the Windows version. Has anyone heard anything about its status beyond the very little information that MacSoft has given us?

    Thanks,
    Adam

    You need a time machine, they clearly said early 08 in 07. My guess is Epic,MacSoft are stuck in this time warp hence not a single word about what ever happened to this one for the Mac.

    Thats interesting.. You'd think this would get mentioned by staff on the Epic forums. But no! And if anyone asks about it on there, the posts are either deleted, locked, or locked with a link left pointing to an outdated FAQ that doesn't say anything useful at all.

    Would be nice of this is for real, and actually works decently. Unfortunately I have my doubts though :rolleyes:

    I have my doubts too. I've been watching Inside Mac Games for news on this game, I haven't seen any in the last couple of months. I don't particularly trust that Amazon date and it's strange that Macsoft and Epic have been so quiet on this game.

    Amazon dates are pretty meaningless. They always have SOME kind of date in their system, but it's generally only a guess.

    Well.. Just to prove how worthless the Epic forum is, and how predictable their feeble admins are.. I did go ahead and ask about it on there today anyway. Pretty much what I expected from them :rolleyes:

    Correct, and just to prove it, I ordered this from them in May 2008 when it said it would be released June 2008. I got another email today saying the release date has changed and I wouldn't get it until mid-October 2008. Since May, I've had an email every month telling me it has been delayed.

    I may have to give up :(

    Anyone hear anything new about this game? I'm STILL waiting for some news. The flash intro on their site says "THIS SPRING", but is that referring to spring '09, or is it just old crap from their original announcement from '07?

    Theres a later post than this one where it was asked and answered already.

    The short of it is, UT3 for Mac is known to be in progress. Just don't ask when we'll see it, because no one knows.

    According to amazon.com's UK site, it's going to be released for Mac on 12/12/2008. The US site doesn't list it....
