Since its launch last month, Epic’s Unreal Engine 4 has received its first large update. The Unreal Engine 4.1 provides full support in terms of complete source code available for Playstation 4 and Xbox One.
It is something which was not possible with the earlier version because of the restrictions imposed by both Sony and Microsoft.
Registered Playstation developers and members of ID@Xbox are being catered in the same $19 per month subscription fee. The update 4.1 addresses over a hundred improvements over the previous version and also comes packed with Epic’s Elemental Demo reel without costing a dime to subscribers.
In addition to this, version 4.1 also includes a sample ‘Shooter Game’ created by Epic Games, which is currently undergoing the process of certification on both Playstation 4 and Xbox One.
Along with Xbox One and Playstation 4, various refinements regarding Android and iOS have been made and new games templates for C++ and Blueprint Visual Scripting Projects have been added.
With version 4.1, Unreal Engine now supports PC; all home consoles (including both last-gen and current-gen), iOS, Android, SteamOS, Linux, and Oculus Rift.
And while we are on the subject of Epic Games, the developer has recently announced a ‘high-end’ title in development, which will unleash the true power of next generation of graphics and push it to its limits.
