Unreal Tournament 3 - Image 1Unreal Tournament 3 players on the Sony PlayStation 3 better get ready to go online because Epic Games has just unleashed the patch for the high-profile shooter. Included in it are plenty of fixes which should set the gameplay experience to optimum levels.

You’ll notice in the patch notes that there are more changes for the U.S. version of Unreal Tournament 3 than for its European counterpart. Epic Games explains that this is due to the fact that the later Euro launch allowed them to squeeze in more polishing to the disc itself. In any case, here’s the changelog:
