Linux Receives Its First Batch of Unreal Engine 4 Demos
There is no questioning the power of Unreal Engine 4, but Linux users so far had nothing official to test this awesome engine.
However, the wait is finally over, as Epic’s Unreal Engine 4 has officially received its first batch of demos for the users of Linux.
The demos introduced to the operating system include the Elemental Demo, Effects Cave Demo, Realistic Rendering Demo, Reflections Subway Demo, Mobile Temple Demo, Sci-Fi Hallway Demo, Stylized Demo and Blueprint Examples Demo.
The demos look absolutely jaw-dropping and it is great to see that Epic Games has taken into consideration the operating system of Linux, which is now being used by a large community.
In addition to demos, Epic has also made available few games – Swing Ninja, Tappy Chicken and Card Game.
Although these are just small games, but they show the quality and power of Unreal Engine 4, as every single title is showcasing amazing effects and visuals, which are just awesome to look at.
Moreover, Epic Games is looking to create the content natively in the Linux operating system in distant future.
However, do note that the samples provided will only work on x86_64 installations because it is the only architecture that is supported by Unreal Engine 4 on Linux thus far.
