As a part of the Windows team, we’re super excited about the Windows 10 Technical Preview that was just released! The final version of Windows 10 will ship with DirectX 12, and we think it's going to be awesome.
We especially encourage gamers to help us make this release great for you by becoming Windows Insiders. Game developers who are part of our DirectX 12 Early Access program have even more incentive to join the Windows Insider program. These game developers will receive everything they need to kickstart their DX12 development, including: updated runtime, API headers, drivers, documentation, and samples, all of which will work with the Windows 10 Technical Preview.
We have a few more treats for game developers...
Unreal 4 Engine 4.4 Supports DirectX 12!
As we announced in our last blog post, members of our Early Access program who subscribe to Unreal Engine 4 can receive source access to the DX12 port of UE4. We’ve worked with Epic to create a DX12 branch on the UE4 GitHub repository. This branch supports UE 4.4, the latest publically released version of the Unreal 4 Engine! Come join our open development project and help make DX12 great!
