Unreal Engine 4 update 4.1 now includes SteamOS and Linux support, a refined iOS and Android workflow, and new game templates both for C++ programmers and Blueprint visual scripting, Epic Games has announced.

The update comes with over 100 improvements based on community feedback, and as previously announced, Epic’s Elemental demo still available free to subscribers.

The engine also includes “Shooter Game,” a sample project created by Epic and is now undergoing certification on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

More information on URE4 update 4.1 can be found through the Unreal Blog and more in-depth information can be obtained through the Unreal Twitch channel today at 2pm EDT.

    The winds of change, they are a-blowing. Did you know that Microsoft is so scared of the way things are going that they’re actually going to add the start menu back to Windows 8? It’s not the kind of start menu I’d want, personally, but that they’re even considering it means that they’re kind of horrified by how things are turning out. And it’s funnier, too, because Metro apps can now be run in windowed mode on Windows 8′s desktop.

    That’s how scared Microsoft is right now of losing to their competitors in the PC space. They’re basically turning Windows 8 back into Windows 7, after swearing up and down that that was something they would never, never, ever do.

    But I honestly think that it’s too little, too late, as apparently Epic seems to realise as well.

    We live in interesting times.
