Epic may be hard at work on a new Unreal Tournament game, but that doesn’t mean that it has abandoned the last game in the series, Unreal Tournament 3.

The developer has released a new patch for the game that prevented its multiplayer going offline forever with the shutting down of GameSpy’s servers this weekend. “We want to be sure you’re still able to play Unreal Tournament 3 Multiplayer. Thanks to community member Shambler, we have a patch that will allow you to continue playing,” Epic wrote.

“We also want to thank all of the server admins and other community members who have helped test the patch to be sure it’s ready to go. (We’re looking at you Bubbaxm2, the nOx guys and Hedsteem!)”

The patch is actually a replacement executable file for the game that will redirect players to the new Unreal Tournament 3 master server, allowing online play to continue.

“In Unreal Tournament 3, you will need to recreate your user name on the new master server,” the developer added. “We are very sorry for this inconvenience, but all currently registered names will go away along with Gamespy. You can use the same names as before and even the same passwords, you just need to have them registered on the new server now instead of Gamespy.”
