Epic Shows Unreal Tournament 3 Playable, Beautiful In Flash

Epic Games' Tim Sweeney just took the stage at the Adobe MAX event to show off the company's Unreal Engine working (and working impressively) in Adobe Flash. To prove Flash's 3D chops, Epic played a visually updated version of Unreal Tournament 3 running in real time.

Sweeney said the latest Flash 3D tech in Flash Player 11 "upgrades the web" to make it a competitive, viable platform for playing games. Adobe corporate says "As the game console for the web, Flash Player 11, along with AIR 3, allows game publishers to instantly deliver console-quality, immersive 3D games with the broadest reach."

More on Unreal Engine for Flash soon.
