Unreality tossed up a Chat Log with Epic Games Mark Rein
. The time was spent answering a whole bunch of questions regarding UT2003. Here is a clip:
How big is the demo, and how many mirrors are expected to mirror the installer upon release?
I think we have about 200 mirrors lined up thus far! The demo is about 100Mb.
Do you have any ideas for any official/unofficial downloadable/buyable expansion packs for UT2k3 in the near future up to 6 months from now?
We expect to release some extra content but we don't have exact plans and NO we won't be charging for it.

"Kakuto Chojin" is a gritty street fight. Dark, edgy and mysterious battles take place in dark alleys and on rain-soaked rooftops. Combatants fight with raw emotion using their own styles. There is nothing cute, comical or cartoon-like about these battles. It's a life-or-death battle for survival. When a fighter strikes, his or her opponent will know it. "Kakuto Chojin" represents the next level in street-fighting realism.

Armobiles (Developed by Ganymede Technologies) is a combination of crazy car race and really hard shooter. High-speed cars moving across the map, on open, different environments in any direction with perfect graphic gives you amazing realistic entertaiment. Reaching a next checkpoint may be really tough, if you have behind you heavy-armored, well-armed, very quick opponents, who wants to eliminate you and reach this same target. Between stages you can buy better armors and better weapons. If it's not satisfactory for you, try to fight with real opponents (multiplayer (LAN) max. 6 opponents) in different game-play modes.
