You gotta love extra content for video games -- there's nothing better than extending the life of your $60 investment in a game with some new material, and when it's free...damn, that's awesome.
Today's free awesome-osity: The Titan Pack expansion for Unreal Tournament 3. It will be available on the PlayStation Store starting today, gratis.
Not only does the pack contain a full 19 maps, the Titan mutator (The mutator allows you to transform into a 15-foot-tall killing machine), the Link Station and X-Ray Field deployables, the Stinger Turret and Eradicator Cannon weapons, the Stealthbender vehicle, the Slow Field power-up, and characters Kana and Nova, it also will contain two new gametypes: Greed and Betrayal.
Greed is described on Sony's official blog as "a fast-paced, 'tug of war' style mode in which you swipe the skulls of fallen players and unload them at the enemy base to score points." The gametype often sees players battling over huge piles of skulls as the clock runs out.
That's not all, though: UTIII players can already enjoy the title update portion of the Titan Pack, which incorporates split-screen, an integrated mod browser, 57 Trophies, visual and menu flow upgrades, A.I. improvements, overhauled networking performance, and better mod support.
To recap: Holy crap, that's a lot of free stuff for Unreal Tournament III! But is it enough to get you to blow the dust of your UTIII disc and play the game again? Let us know, below.
Oh, and if you have a 360, you're out of luck. Apparently, the Titan pack is not coming to the Xbox. Here's why, according to game-makers Midway:
"There are some file size limitations with Xbox 360 that prevent us from releasing it. In addition there are some features of the Titan Pack that 360 already has, like split screen support, and some of the maps that will now be available for PC, Steam and PS3 gamers. Other features, like the integrated mod browser, Xbox 360 doesn’t support. You know Midway and certainly Epic are big supporters of the 360, but there are some pretty big hurdles and redundant features that prevent making the Titan Pack available for the Xbox 360."
