Epic and Midway attended last month’s GC 2005, an industry trade show held inLeipzig, Germany, to show UnrealTournament 2007, the next title in the semi-annual multiplayer FPS series.Several news sites were on hand to gather impressions:

  • IGN -screenshots, videos, and quotes from Epic’s James Brown regarded optimizedlevel load times due to new streaming tech.
  • BeyondUnreal- photos of the booth area and presentation
  • inUnreal.de- video of the presentation
  • GameSpy- screenshots, level impressions

UT2007 utilizes UnrealEngine 3; favorable comments by Epic’sMark Rein during this past E3 (in the context of PS3 development) imply that Epic will be continuing it’s historical support for Linux with this title.

    I’m guessing Mr Gordon is happy about the continued Linux support?

    I think I would go into seizures if Epic told me they were dropping Linux support. Convulsions and everything…maybe even a couple strokes and a heart attach for good messure.

    If only people knew that this non-accurate rendition of a man’s heart was actually the perspectived view looking down from above a female’s buttocks. If only they knew what… IT… MEANS!

    “At E3 2005, Epic’s Tim Sweeney suggested an NVIDIA GeForce 6800 Ultra level card for decent frame rates at 1024×768 resolution.”

    Mark Rein at E3:
    “Sony’s cell demos were extremely cool and inspiring but are totally achievable, and over time even surpassable, by third developers like us because, as Tim Sweeney said, the development environment is made up of parts we’re already intimately familiar with: OpenGL, NVIDIA graphics, Linux, and PowerPC.”
    Why does he says Linux? Is he saying that the RTOS built into the ps3 is linux, just like the xbox runs a stripped down win2k? Is the development environment linux?
    Wouldn’t that be crazy if Sony makes it easy to port ps3 games to Linux, and all the developers do?
