Unreal Tournament news UK National UT3 Championships

Unreal Tournament 3 is nearly upon us and the demo has been very well received. We were one of the first organizations to provide a download location for the demo.

We were also one of the first people to have hosted UT3 servers up and running for the demo and while we are talking about firsts do not forget that EnemyDown is the first site to offer Global Ranking Stats!

When it comes to UT3 we seem to be setting a bit of a precedent, so why stop there? EnemyDown is proud to announce that we will be running two launch tournaments in partnership with play.com and Midway. The tournaments will be UK based. There will be a single player tournament which will have a fantastic prize pot of £20,000, and a team based tournament which will command an impressive £30,000 prize pot.

In order to take part in the UT3 tournaments you MUST pre-order and purchase a copy of the game from play.com. You will receive a unique registration code which will be required to confirm your entry into the tournaments. That one unique registration key can be used to enter both of the tournaments if that is your desire.

These tournaments will be decided at a LAN in March, 2008. The venue is currently top secret so you will have to watch this space for that announcement.

Don’t forget, to qualify for the competition you MUST have bought your copy of UT3 from play.com so if you have it pre-ordered elsewhere now is the time to cancel that order and visit play.com to be in with a chance to win.
If you are in the market for that something extra special you can also pre-order the Limited Edition version and receive an entry code.

You can signup for EnemyDown and find out a little more about these competitions on the information page.

I pre-ordered this game from Play.com last year... will I still be part of this offer when the game is released?

Posted by CHEWI on Nov 7th 2007

Can anyone remember when EnemyDown was a 'no money organisation'? - damn those days sucked!

Posted by aaiQ on Nov 7th 2007

Can anyone remember when ED promoted 'Teamplay ONLY?' - damn those days sucked!

Posted by Rondrian on Nov 7th 2007

Would be very important to know which gametype will be chosen for the team event, probably most players can't be bothered to pre-order the game without knowing what will be played.

Posted by VVV.K-OS on Nov 10th 2007
