Well.. on the blog the Linux demo came out and he said the mac one's coming soon!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.
I haven't been following Ryan too closely lately so I'm a bit behind.Well.. on the blog the Linux demo came out and he said the mac one's coming soon!
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?I would have expected Quake Wars long before UT3, but it's a tough call
UT4 is available at the below link?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?
No, it is not; there is no UT4. That's UT2004, AKA UT2.5.UT4 is available at the below link?
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.Any idea when the Mac version will come out? Will it be this year or... 2009 . Also will the online be with PC users?
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 themAnd 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.
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.Amazon dates are pretty meaningless. They always have SOME kind of date in their system, but it's generally only a guess.
Theres a later post than this one where it was asked and answered already.
