Epic Games released a video demo of Unreal Tournament 3 running in Flash. This was part of an announcement that Unreal Engine 3 (UE3) can now run in Flash, enabling incredible graphics you’d expect to see on current game consoles to work in a Web browser (The screenshot you’re seeing above this post is being run in Flash).
The technology, which leverages the new Adobe Flash Player 11, was unveiled in a presentation by Epic Games founder and CEO Tim Sweeney at the annual Adobe MAX 2011 conference.
According to the Epic Games website, Flash support “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.”
Maybe this will convince Apple to add Flash support to the iPhone and iPad. This could be the adrenaline boost Flash needs to get back into the fight.
Check out the two demos below:
