Unreal Tournament 2003 demo is coming!

It could be out as soon as tommorow to sometimes during the weekend.

It's about time the demo is released, they've been saying '2 weeks' for a couple of months now, but it should all be worth it.

UT2k3 is a multi-player game. A single player game using more or less the same game engine will be released later and is called Unreal 2. I believe they said the demo will include 4 multi-player maps. You may be able to set up some matches with bots and play that single player, but mainly it's intended for online play.

The bots are apparently very good, they rigged them so that they could act like players and know every spot on every map. It might be fun playing single player, but it's not made for it.

Geez, I finally get into fileshack, and wait the estimated time. That goes by, the "time left" turns to "a few more minutes", and with each refresh, the "average wait" goes up a minute with my "wait time" 3 minutes past that . GRAH!

Crap - Fileshack...
"Average wait time = 12 minutes"
....
"You've waited 24 minutes"
"Average wait time = 24 minutes"
...
"Approx download start = 12 seconds"
...
"approx download start = A few minutes"

ARGH!

90 minute wait left on fileplanet. I'll bet that's done first.

My actual wait time was 39 minutes and the average wait time was 31 minutes. It was 6 when I first got in the queue...

Still, it's a lot better than fileplanet.
