Defend Unreal Territories is a new gametype for Unreal Tournament 3. The concept was created taking inspiration from Warcraft Tower Defense. The goal is to prevent hordes of monsters from reaching an objective. Firstly, the players' team will struggle on foot with conventional weapons. Then the players will be able to unlock bonuses (new abilities and objects) thanks to the points won each time a monster is killed. New abilities will enable the players to be faster, have more life and make more damage. The players may be helped by automatic turrets.

I - INTRODUCTION
"Defend Unreal Territories" (DUT) is a mod for Unreal Tournament 3, based on
the Unreal universe: the team players have to keep the invaders away from the
portal which drives to the Earth. Each time a player kills a monster, he earns
money. This money can be used to buy sentinels to improve the team's firepower,
and to boost some of the player's capabilities: he will be faster, his strength
will be increased, etc.
Please note that our mod is (still) a beta release - the code is dirty,
functionalities aren't all implemented, and everything you see may change in a
