Steam and Epic have teamed up this weekend, offering gamers a chance to play the entire, full version of Unreal Tournament 3
for free all weekend.
In addition to the free weekend, there's also a sale on the game that'll let you pick up the original Unreal Tournament
for $1.99 USD, with the both the Unreal Tournament Black Edition
and Unreal Deal Pack getting a 60 percent price reduction until Sept. 27th.
According to Epic this is all to help celebrate the launch of the series, marking ten years since the demo of the original Unreal Tournament
was unleashed upon the world. We don't know about the rest of you, but we played that demo until our fingers bled from pounding the keys for so long.
Of course, a cynic could also point out that it will doubtlessly help boost sales - the Steam free weekends work wonders for profits
according to Valve.
If you're unsure about whether it's worth downloading UT3
this weekend then you can check out our review of the game
from back when it was released in 2007, but in brief we'll say that you'll probably be more interested in the mods than in the core game.
