Developers can now use Unreal Engine 4 to create browser games, thanks to the tech’s WebGL pipeline.
Creator Epic Games has demonstrated this with a simple strategy game that can now be played over at Mozilla Demo Studio. The project is part of Firefox’s 10th Anniversary feature.
The tower defence title showcases how high-performance 3D content can run in browser windows. It was ported using Emscripten, a tool that enables devs to bring native applications to the web.
Unreal Engine 4’s WebGL pipeline is available at no extra cost to developers. The engine is available to all devs for $19 per month, and is free for students and academia.
