Nvidia, Epic Announce 3D Added to Unreal Engine

Epic Games today announced at GDC that it has added 3D support to Unreal Engine 3. Yes, it's true that the Unreal Engine is already one that fully account for the third dimension, but the addition that we're talking about today is 3D display with Nvidia's 3D Vision technology.

Today’s announcement means that licensees of Unreal Engine 3 will be able to take full advantage of integrated 3D Vision technology support. Users of the Unreal Development Kit (UDK), a free version of Unreal Engine 3, will also benefit from the addition of 3D Vision support.

Mark Rein, vice president at Epic Games, appeared to be the most excited about this at the time of announcement. "The combination of Unreal Engine 3 and 3D Vision makes already amazing games even more jaw dropping," he said. "If you haven’t seen Unreal Engine 3 in 3D, you won’t believe how realistic it is! We’re excited to offer this technology for free to our licensees and can’t wait to see what people create with it."

    The real question is, how will this effect your eyes in the long run and of course its "realistic" its 3d! i can imagine the crytech engine2 or even the new one crytech engine 3 in 3d! THAT must be a literal blast to play! Crysis 2 will have 3d so I truly cant wait for this. i only wish drivers were optimized to work 3d on CURRENT LCD tv's with at least 100hz instead of having to purchase an actualt 3d certified LCD/O-LED
