Epic Games Chief Executive Officer, Founder and Technical Director Tim Sweeney today presented the company’s award-winning Unreal Engine 3 (UE3) technology running fully inside an Adobe Flash-based environment during a keynote at Adobe MAX 2011, Adobe’s annual conference for developers, designers and business leaders. The live technical demonstration of “Unreal Tournament 3,” Epic’s blockbuster first-person shooter was visually enhanced for an unprecedented real-time experience inside Adobe Flash Player 11, which was released yesterday.
Flash Player is a key technology for gaming on social networks and the Web, and with UE3 will usher in the leap from 2D game experiences to world-class 3D gaming on the Web. Developers can now animate millions of objects with smooth 60 frames per second rendering and deliver console-quality games on Mac OS, Windows and connected televisions.
UE3 licensees will be able to access these new features that bring triple-A gaming to the Web. For more information about developing games for the Flash Platform with UE3, visit www.unrealengine.com.
