UT3 Free Steam Weekend, Sale Price

Steam is offering a free Unreal Tournament III Black (the original game plus the new Titan Pack) trial weekend to anyone with a Steam account, allowing the chance to sample Epic's multiplayer shooter and its new content. They are also offering a 40% off sale price on purchases of the UT3 Black through March 15. Thanks BeyondUnreal.

21. Don't bother with the whole download. Mar 5, 2009, 19:52 GT
 
Download speeds on this from Steam are terrible, and they periodically stop altogether. I've changed download locations in Steam four times now over the past six hours (and had to restart Steam each time because Valve doesn't know how to design a download client worth a damn), and still I can't get a consistent and decent download speed. The damn weekend will be over before I download all 8GB+ of this from Steam.

Valve, this is why other game developers and publishers have third-parties mirror their game files. Five plus years into Steam and this is still a problem at every popular game release and update. Crytek and EA did this the right way for the free Crysis Wars multiplayer week by having all the major game websites mirror the game files.

My money says the Pirate Bay version plus manual download patch and Titan pack will also work for the free weekend since UT3 uses Gamespy and not Steam for its multiplayer functionality anyway.
