Epic’s Unreal Engine 4.1 Update to Add Support for Linux & SteamOS

By   /   Apr 4, 2014

Epic Games has announced that Unreal Engine 4.1 update will release sometime later this month and it will bring some really drastic changes, the biggest of them being the support for the Linux and obviously for SteamOS.

Moreover, Epic will release Unreal Engine’s Elemental tech demo for free. The subscribers will be able to access the demo in the Unreal Engine’s marketplace. This demo was first shown by Epic to demonstrate the next-gen capabilities of their latest engine.

The spokesperson of Epic explained this decision:

It took us awhile, but we’ve converted Elemental to match the engine’s default system, to make it easy for you to use these assets with your own projects.

Also, last month Epic decided to remove all the extra costs for their engine, instead they launched a brand new business model which provides every developer an access to the latest engine on a very low subscription fee.

Now the developers can sign up for the engine for Mac, iOS, Android and PC for just $19 a month and plus 5% of gross revenue that is gained from any commercial products that are made with the help of Unreal Engine.

Epic has promised the developers that they will keep on bringing new updates every now and then to keep improving the performance of their Engine.

These aforementioned features are just tip of the Iceberg, for detailed information of the next update, check out the game’s official website.
