Unreal Tournament 3 is actually the fourth game in the Unreal Tournament series and the eighth Unreal game, but it has been numbered in terms of the engine it runs on. The original Unreal Tournament uses the original Unreal Engine, while UT2003 and UT2004 use the Unreal Engine 2, and 2004 incorporates all of the content from 2003; therefore they are considered as the same generation. Unreal Tournament is a First-person shooter Video game co-developed by Epic Games and Digital Extremes. Unreal Tournament 2003 or UT2003 is a First-person shooter Video game designed mainly for Multiplayer gaming Unreal Tournament 2004, also known as UT2K4 and UT2004, is a futuristic First-person shooter computer game UT3 is subsequently part of the third generation, because it runs on the Unreal Engine 3, and does not reuse any content.  In March 2008, Midway announced that UT3 had sold over a million copies worldwide. 
Similar to the previous entries of the series, the game is primarily an online multiplayer title offering several game modes, including large-scale Warfare, Capture-the-Flag, and Deathmatch. It will also include an extensive offline single-player game with an in-depth story, advancing from the simple tournament ladder to such concepts as team members with their own individual personalities. The following game modes are included:
Modes not returning from the previous Unreal Tournament games include Invasion, Mutant, Onslaught, Bombing Run, Last Man Standing, Domination, Double Domination, and Assault; Assault was removed from the game during production.  Due to the game's customizable nature these game modes could be recreated by users of the game. Although the game designers claimed that the new Warfare mode would allow maps to be created that play like classic Assault or Onslaught, the reality is that only Onslaught maps can be created, as there is no simple way to implement the timed rounds and Attacker/Defender teams that were the major features of classic Assault.
The weapon arsenal in UT3 is largely similar to that of UT2004. Returning weapons include the AVRiL (which can also guide deployed spider mines with its secondary fire mode), Bio Rifle (shoots out blobs of bio-mass), Flak Cannon, Link Gun, Rocket Launcher, Shock Rifle, Sniper Rifle (which increases headshot radius when standing still), and the Redeemer (The Target Painter was planned on being in the game but was evidently cut). The Enforcer (which can be dual-wielded) and the Impact Hammer based on the original UT, respectively replace the Assault Rifle and the Shield Gun from UT 2003 and 2004. The Enforcer fires either a single semi-automatic shot or three round bursts. The Impact Hammer features an EMP blast alternate fire that can knock powerups (such as Beserk, UDamage) out of enemies as well as dealing up to 150 damage and sizable kickback to a vehicle. Returning from Unreal and Unreal Championship 2: The Liandri Conflict is the Tarydium Stinger, which replaces the Minigun. Unreal is a First-person shooter Computer game developed by Epic Games and Digital Extremes and published by GT Interactive Unreal Championship 2 The Liandri Conflict is a first- / Third-person shooter Video game part of the Unreal series of games The Stinger's primary fires hitscan-speed rounds; the secondary fire mode is stronger, has a slower rate of fire and isn't hitscan, but can nail an opponent to a wall if it's the killing blow. In First-person shooter games a hitscan weapon is one that when fired instantly hits whatever the weapon is pointing at
Killing awards have been expanded from just three as seen in UT2004, to nearly all weapons. Unreal Tournament 2004, also known as UT2K4 and UT2004, is a futuristic First-person shooter computer game Accumulating fifteen kills with a particular weapon or fire mode prompts the announcer to award the player with a specific title.
The vehicles have been split into two factions, the Axon vehicles (made by the Axon corporation) and Necris vehicles. The Axon vehicles are the same from UT2004, but several have significant gameplay changes. In addition, every player is equipped with a personal hoverboard, which is a skateboard-like device that allows players to traverse large maps and get towed when they grapple onto other teammates' vehicles. However, the hoverboard is very vulnerable to attack and any kind of hit will knock the player off the board and disable him or her for several seconds. Additionally, the player cannot use any weapons while on the board.
The returning Axon vehicles include those featured in the Editor's Choice Edition of Unreal Tournament 2004 and are relatively more traditional. Included are the Manta - a fast hovercraft which is more maneuverable in UT3, the Raptor (air superiority dogfighter), Scorpion (light assault buggy, now equipped with mortars, blades that unfold in the front, and now has a speed-boost option which can be used to kamikaze itself into another target), Hellbender (armored jeep, the driver now operates the air mine gun reducing the crew to 2), Cicada (a two person air support vehicle), Hellfire SPMA (remote bombardment cannon with a significant improvement in handling), Paladin (infantry support tank that uses an energy shield), Goliath (battle tank), and Leviathan (heavy weapons platform).
The Necris (undead humans who are the opposition in the tournaments) have a rival set of vehicles. There are six Necris vehicles, and although they are not parallel to Axon's vehicles, they are intended to make a good balance against them.
The Necris Viper is most similar to the Manta, a quick strike ground skimmer armed with single-bouncing energy pellets and a kamikaze function. The Nemesis is essentially a mobile energy turret with adaptable snake-like treads, and the DarkWalker is a heavy offensive vehicle, featuring a twin blast beam on a tripod walker (similar to the tripods from H. G. Wells' The War of the Worlds). The War of the Worlds (1898 by H G Wells, is an early Science fiction Novel which describes an invasion of England by The Fury is the basic air vehicle of the Necris, with jelly-like propulsion, the Nightshade is a cloaking stealth vehicle with deployables, and the Scavenger is an orb-like vehicle with a complex attack mode that shoots energy beams while the orb itself is moving towards the target.
Unlike the previous Unreal Tournament games, the single player campaign does not follow a plot based around the Tournament Grand Championship, and therefore several of the teams within Unreal Tournament III are not Tournament competitors:

Many Unreal Tournament 3 players have created additional maps, mutators, and characters for Unreal Tournament 3. Some user-created content includes custom characters, including Master Chief from the Halo series, Samus from the Metroid series, Snake from the Metal Gear Solid series, and Marcus and the Locust from Gears of War.

Following its release on the PS3 in early 2008, there was much speculation surrounding the Xbox 360 version, which was scheduled for a release at around the same time. In an interview with TeamXbox, Mark Rein, the Vice President of developer Epic Games mentioned that problems with Microsofts' Xbox Live team were holding back some areas of production. Epic Games, also known as Epic and formerly as Epic MegaGames, is a Video game development company based in Cary North Carolina, United The review cites "Microsoft's strict rules for Xbox Live, which in its current form won't accept user-generated content for the game. " as the source of the delays. Rein goes on to say "Microsoft hasn't said "no" yet, but then they haven't said "yes" either. " Rein explained. "We need them to say "yes," and we need them to do it soon. "  The 360 version will have 5 Exclusive maps, 2 Exclusive Characters, a 2 Player Splitscreen Multiplayer mode and all the downloadable content released by Epic already on the Disc. 
The issue over Microsoft's closed membership system and points cost for many downloads has sparked a debate over how the Xbox release will be handled. Epic president Mark Rein confirmed that Epic is talking with Microsoft about getting round the company's reluctance to share user-generated content, and is "cautiously optimistic" that a solution is coming.
