Unreal Engine 3 Comes to the Mac Platform


As noted by Joystiq, Epic Games yesterday announced that its Unreal Engine 3 development kit (UDK) beta has now been updated to include Mac support. The development means that all games developed using the UDK can now be ported over to OS X.
UDK games can now run on Mac OS

- Every UDK game's potential user base has increased dramatically yet again
- September 2011 UDK contains a preview of our Mac OS support
Unreal Engine 3 was brought to iOS nearly two years ago, where it has seen some success with the likes of Infinity Blade. On a broader level, Unreal Engine 3 has been used by Epic for its own games such as its Gears of War series and Unreal Tournament 3, but has also been adopted by a number of other major gaming companies for use in their own offerings.

Hopefully they've been optimizing the engine.

Love the original Unreal game on Mac.

Actually a Mac can play more games than a PC, because a Mac can run both platforms easily.

Have you tried playing a game like these on your Mac? If you have a Mac laptop, you'll have to wear headphones to drown out the fan and if you're on battery you'll be lucky to get an hour of play time. And don't forget your flame retardant undergarments.

If only Mac's have the hardware to take advantage of that fact.


your joking right??????

computers like the macbook air and the low end mac mini don't have discrete graphics for obvious reasons.

However, Apple's other computers either have "mid-high" graphics or "high-extreme" graphics

Tis wonderful news, now lets hope those publisher contracts aren't so stingy that they forbid OSX ports!

It just can't run them as well with the video cards. My imac 27" i7 does ok with SC2 at 1920x1080, the frame rate is too low for my liking at native res.
For Diablo 3 i have to go to 1600x900 no AA to get a decent frame rate.
I'm thinking of picking up a lil PC for some gaming. For $900 i can get something that will blow this out of the water with an SSD to help it along. If i pick a displayport model i should be able to use my imac as a monitor.

Let's hope those titles I already own on Steam just automagically start working on my macs! Really REALLY miss the original UT - I even had the unofficial OS X port on my PowerBook.

Maybe MacSoft will finally port Unreal Tournament 3 to Mac OS X! :p It's only been 3 years... maybe "this spring" (http://www.destineerstudios.com/macsoftgames/products/ut3/index.html) it will finally happen! :p
