Judge rules Apple can block Fortnite on iOS, but not Epic's Unreal Engine

Judge rules Apple can block Fortnite on iOS, but not Epic's Unreal Engine

Last week, Fortnite released a new update that circumvented Apple and Google's rules on in-app payments, by allowing players to purchase V-Bucks without Apple and Google taking 30% of the revenue. The game was promptly removed from the Apple App Store and Google Play Store, and now Apple is further retaliating against Epic.

[For Developers] Massive Unreal Engine 4.4 Update Released With New And Improved Tools, Tons Of Free Content, And Better Support For Mobile

Unless you absolutely despise games, you've probably noticed Unreal Engine is sort of a rock star among game development platforms. Not only is it capable of rendering some profoundly gorgeous graphics, it can do so on virtually every major desktop and mobile operating system available. Today, Epic Games is releasing Unreal Engine 4.4 with some new tools for building animation and behavior models, additional rendering features, improved support for Android and iOS, and even some free stuff in the content marketplace.

Among the featured items of the update, Epic is touting two new editors. The first is Unreal Motion Graphics (UMG), an interactive editor that integrates with Blueprints to allow developers to more easily construct events and animations, then preview them in real-time.

[New Game] Uppercut Games' New Shooter, EPOCH, Shows Why Killer Robots Never Go Out Of Style

[New Game] Uppercut Games' New Shooter, EPOCH, Shows Why Killer Robots Never Go Out Of Style

Cylons. The Terminator. Gort. Johnny 5. Science fiction seems more than a little obsessed with the idea of murderous automatons, and with good reason: it works. Newcomer developer Uppercut Games has taken the trope to mobile gaming with EPOCH, a post-apocalyptic shooter that does away with the humans altogether (to make room for more robots). The Unreal Engine powers this graphical beast, and it's available for $4.99 for all devices - or at least the ones that can handle it.

The gameplay is a curious mix of the cover-based, over-the-shoulder shooting that's become so common in the console world and reactive, gesture-driven combat, a la Infinity Blade.

You're Wasting Four Minutes Of Your Life If You're Not Watching This Guy Create An Optimus G Out Of Diamonds With His Mind

You're Wasting Four Minutes Of Your Life If You're Not Watching This Guy Create An Optimus G Out Of Diamonds With His Mind

I know what you're thinking. Did he fire six shots or only five? LG? Making an interesting video? Pshaw, I say! Before you dismiss it, though, let me ask you something. Have you ever seen a phone built out of magic and diamonds?! No? Then I've got something new to show you. In this four-minute promo video for the LG Optimus G, we see a man who is, apparently, a sparkle bender, forge a block of pure obsidian, then literally carve the phone out of this block with telekinesis. And that is just the beginning.

The video also demonstrates other key features of the Optimus G.

[Video] Gameloft Unveils Its First Unreal Engine Game: March Of Heroes

[Video] Gameloft Unveils Its First Unreal Engine Game: March Of Heroes

I'll admit, I don't keep up too much on Gameloft's Android offerings, but the developer has received a reputation for releasing some of the higher quality Android games available (just not on the Market).

Their latest offering, whose release date is unknown, is March Of Heroes. What makes March Of Heroes different is that the game has been built on the Unreal Engine, which is a much more configurable and modern engine, and is probably the most advanced game engine on any mobile platform.

We don't have any information on a release date or pricing, but Gameloft generally churns out titles pretty quick, so you probably won't be waiting too long.

Dungeon Defenders: First Wave Just Released To Market, PvP Arena Announced!

It's certainly been a good few days for Android gaming, hasn't it? And it looks like the trend is still going: the hotly anticipated Android version of popular iOS game Dungeon Defenders has just landed in the Market with a holiday price of $3. What makes the game so great? Aside from the fact that it's powered by the Unreal engine (!) - which means the graphics are superb - it's long been one of the best-rated iOS games on the market. And indeed, after just an hour on the Android Market, the game has 15 ratings for an average of 4.8 stars.
