A press release issued over Steam revealed that Epic's Unreal Tournament 3 would be receiving a 'massive update' that would see a whole host of improvements and new features added. Most surprising is the decision to incorporate Steamworks functionality and adding over 50 achievements. Can this mean possible Steamworks integration for UT3 mods, one can only hope. If you've already purchased UT3, you can use your retail serial to activate it and have it added to your Steam catalogue. Here's the press release in full:
