Message Text: Mozilla and Epic Games have worked together to bring the Unreal Engine 3 to the Web. With this port, developers will be able to explore their possibilities when it comes to bringing their gaming titles to the Web.

With Mozilla's latest innovations in JavaScript, game developers and publishers can now take advantage of fast performance that rivals native while leveraging scale of the Web, without the additional costs associated with third-party plugins. This allows them to performance intensive games to billions of people more easily and cost effectively than before.

To make these advancements, Mozilla developed a highly-optimized version of JavaScript that supercharges a developer's gaming code in the browser to enable visually compelling, fast, 3D gaming experiences on the Web. With this technology, Mozilla is also opening up the path for 3D Web-based games on mobile as JavaScript performance continues to close the gap with native.

By leveraging this new JavaScript optimization technology, Mozilla has been able to bring Epic?s Unreal Engine 3 to the Web.

Mozilla recently showcased the BananaBread game demo, which is built using Web technologies Mozilla pioneered, including WebGL, Emscripten and now asm.js. The demo shows how high-end games can easily be ported to JavaScript and WebGL while still maintaining a responsive, visually compelling 3D gaming experience.

Developers wishing to test this technology can check out the latest version of BananaBread with its peer-to-peer, multiplayer WebRTC technology and JavaScript performance improvements. BananaBread works in all browsers that support WebGL.

As high-performance games on the Web move to rival native performance, Mozilla is also opening up the path to Web-based games on mobile. Mozilla is working with game publishers such as Disney, EA and ZeptoLab who are using the same technology to bring performance optimizations to their top-rated games.

Developers can submit fun games and apps to the Firefox Marketplace now. The Firefox Marketplace is currently available as a preview on Firefox for Android and will come to Firefox OS later this year.
