Unreal Engine 3

Software entity

Uses third generation Unreal Engine (by Epic Games).


Alternate name: UE3

Has integrated PhysX and OpenAL support as well as a large number of other APIs and middleware.

It's safe to assume all games using UE3 are written in C++ as UE3 itself was written in it and is extensible through it.

UE3 seems to have problems with PS3 which it claims to support and Epic has gained some bad publicity for not providing support.

Crossplatform support for:
* Windows
* PS3
* X360
* iOS (iPhone, iPad and iPod touch)
* Android(?)

The first Unreal Engine 3 video game was released on July 20, 2006.

2K Games, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and Midway Games published most of these games.
