Unreal Engine 3 Can Run Fully In Flash 11

During his keynote at Adobe MAX 2011, Epic Games Chief Executive Officer, Founder and Technical Director Tim Sweeney demonstrated Unreal Tournament 3 running at its maximum quality in real-time inside Adobe Flash Player 11.

Unreal Engine 3 which powers Unreal Tournament 3 is one of the most advancement graphics engines available today for consoles and PC. Thanks to its hardware acceleration, Adobe Flash 11 is up to 1000 faster than its predecessor and is able to run UE3.

"With UE3 and Flash, games built for high-end consoles can now run on the Web or as Facebook apps, reaching an enormous user base," said Sweeney. "This totally changes the playing field for game developers who want to widely deploy and monetize their games."

"We're excited that Epic Games is tapping into the latest capabilities in Adobe Flash Player 11 to power its Unreal Engine 3," said Emmy Huang, group product manager, Adobe Gaming Solutions. "As the console of the web, Flash is delivering immersive gaming experiences across screens and we're thrilled to have Epic Games using Flash Player to deliver its blockbuster, premier 3D games on the Web."

It goes a lot deeper, flash

It goes a lot deeper, flash is running inside a browser, the browser runs inside an os, this os is composed of several more layers running ontop of each other going all the way down to the cpu. Abstraction is a wonderful thing...


Hm so what, ur browser can play a over 5 years old engine. Why is that bringing good PC gaming back?
Hail shitty consoleports 4 facebook, uber need....

Flash Support

Flash is fully supported within the Unreal Engine 3. It is the primary way of making UIs in the engine now. They are constantly updating it too, which probably means they have at least 1 guy who knows his shit with Flash. Though Flash is a really easy program to learn and Actionscript is really simple to learn.

Steve Jobs

Actually Steve Jobs has a notebook where he's been writing developement ideas for the next 5 years. Including Hologram technology. Apple will be good for the next 5 years, after that who knows


sorry about that, that was me by the way. I have a dirty mind and a bad habit of releasing myself in other people's garments. I was totally eating fritos and asparagus before I relieved myself too. sorry about the smell.

I didn't even wash my hands.
