NVIDIA and Epic Games, Inc. today announced the addition of NVIDIA 3D Vision technology support to Unreal Engine 3.
Today?s announcement means that licensees of the world?s most successful game engine will be able to take full advantage of integrated 3D Vision technology support. Epic?s popular Unreal Development Kit (UDK), a free version of Unreal Engine 3, will also benefit from the addition of 3D Vision support, bringing a 3D development platform to the more than 200,000 current users worldwide.
Epic Games and NVIDIA have worked together to integrate "out of the box" support for NVIDIA 3D Vision technology into Unreal Engine 3, the engine that powers some of the most successful games in the marketplace including: Gears of War and Gears of War 2, Shadow Complex, BioShock 2, Mass Effect and Mass Effect 2, Borderlands and Batman: Arkham Asylum.
The companies said that the updated version of Unreal Engine 3 and UDK would be available soon for all licensees allowing games developed with that revision (or later) to deliver "out of the box" support for 3D vision.
Nvidia's 3D Vision consists of wireless, active-shutter glasses and wireless USB emitter and can work with compatible 120Hz desktop LCDs, 3D TVs and projectors. A NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GTX or higher GPU is also required.
