Epic Releases UT2K3 Bonus Pack

Well, I'm a day late on this posting, so more than likely UT2K3 players alike will already know this, but Epic has finally released their UT2K3 Bonus Pack. A quick rundown of changes include :

  • 10 New Maps (6 DM, 2 CTF, 1 DOM, 1 BR)
  • 3 New Gametypes (Mutant, Last Man Standing, Invasion)
  • 2 New Adrenaline Combos
  • Many other new features (Music Options, Announcer Voice, etc.).

    Too many specifics listed, if you really wanna read through them all, click on the "Read More..." link below. For a listing of download links, check out the Official Homepage for a full list.

    *NOTE* You will need to have the v2199 patch already installed before running the Bonus Pack.
  • Full Story:
    Mutant: The player who makes the first frag becomes the mutant and is immediately equipped with all weapons, extra ammo, invisibility, agility and berserk. However, the mutant's health slowly decreases and can only be replenished by fragging other players. Once there is a "mutant," all other players are charged with hunting him down. Points are scored only by the mutant when they frag other players. As an optional twist, the player with the lowest score becomes the BottomFeeder -- he can frag other players who are not the mutant and receive points. As soon as his score isn't the lowest, a new player becomes the BottomFeeder.

    Last Man Standing: This is similar to the Last Man Standing mode in the original Unreal Tournament. Players regenerate health when they frag an opponent. If a player stands in one place for too long, they will be revealed to other players as a camper and their location will appear on all opponent's displays.

    Invasion: In this game type, players band together to defend against waves of incoming monsters -- including many of the monsters from the original Unreal. Players cannot respawn if they die during a wave, but as long as one player makes it to the end of a wave alive, everyone respawns for the next wave.

    10 new maps are including, spanning all game types, including Deathmatch, Double Domination, Bombing Run and Capture the Flag. The new areas include additional textures and static meshes that can be used with the Unreal Editor. Maps include DM-IronDeity, DM-IceTomb, BR-Canyon, DOM-Junkyard, DM-Rustatorium, DM-1on1-Crash, DM-1on1-Mixer, DM-Injector, CTF-Avaris and CTF-DoubleDammage

    The two new adrenaline combos can be added using mutators:

    Pint-Sized: Makes the player half their normal height (but players can no longer crouch).

    Camouflage: Places a holographic projection of a static decoration over you as a disguise. The projection doesn't quite extend to your feet, so you have to crouch to be fully concealed.

    Announcer Voice Options: Several new announcer voice options are now available

    Music Options: This bonus pack also includes a new OGGPlayer that gives gamers direct control over the music that is played during the game.

    I have a bonus pac and I LOVE IT! ! ! ! !
    I have played the rustatorium quite a few times, it is small map, but the graphics 
    are top notch.  the uneven ground in that map make distance shots a little harder 
    than a normal flat map.
    I'll be running a server at the next game day, so join my bonus pac server and 
    enjoy the game.
