Unreal Tournament 3: Ice World

Gameplay Video

Engine: UT3/Unreal Editor 3
Development Time: 96 hours

Ice World is a multiplayer map for the “Capture The Flag” gametype in Unreal Tournament III. The map is balanced for four player teams, but up to 16 players can play as well. Location is set on a frozen planet named Phrygia, where the two groups battle to gain control.

The level layout features an ice glacier at the center of the map and the players can battle for dominance of the glacier to gain strategic advantage. The level also has several underground tunnels for the players who wish to avoid the glacier battle, and decide to sneak through the enemy base. These features help create a fast-paced action packed experience.

Design Goals:

  • Create an engaging and fun “Capture the Flag” map
  • Design the level to allow different path choices and gameplay styles
  • Familiarize with the Unreal Tournament 3 editor and assets
The main structural and gameplay focus is the glacier at the center. The team that controls the glacier has better chances of capturing the flag.
