Unreal Engine 4 runs in Firefox without plug-ins (video)

Posted on Thursday, March 13 2014 @ 13:14:10 CET by


Epic Games and Mozilla show off how well the Unreal Engine 4 runs in Firefox, without the use of any plug-ins. Mozilla explains on its blog that they've made big improvements in the performance of web applications using asm.js. In the last 12 months they've increased the performance from 40 percent to within 67 percent of native, and they expect it to get even faster.
Mozilla and Epic Games have showed the power of the Web as a platform for gaming by porting Unreal Engine 3 to the Web and showcasing Epic Citadel, using asm.js, a supercharged subset of JavaScript pioneered by Mozilla. In less than 12 months, optimizations have increased the performance of Web applications using asm.js from 40% to within 67% of native, and we expect it to get even faster. This performance opens up new opportunities for giving users an astonishing and delightful experience, from within their choice of Web browser. Any modern browser can run asm.js content, but specific optimizations currently present only in Firefox, ensure the most consistent and smooth experience.

“This technology has reached a point where games users can jump into via a Web link are now almost indistinguishable from ones they might have had to wait to download and install,” said Brendan Eich, CTO and SVP of Engineering at Mozilla. “Using Emscripten to cross-compile C and C++ into asm.js, developers can run their games at near-native speeds, so they can approach the Web as they would any other platform.”
