What happened to all the good Samaritans out there? You know, the kind that put store-robbery to the side in order to help out a bum by turning into a metallic super-cyborg to fight off fascists cops? Well, if you’ve been longing for the aforementioned Samaritan, Epic Games has one for you.
The debut tech trailer for the next generation of the Unreal Engine 3 is called The Samaritan, and the public can freely view the new trailer right here. Of course, given that I’m sure the community is highly interested in this concept, one has to wonder if Epic is planning on turning The Samaritan into a real project? It would be sweet, no doubt.
Anyway, for indie and up-and-coming devs out there, the March 2011 Unreal Development Kit is currently available for download. The new update includes a number of snazzy features, including an adjustable depth of field for that movie fade-in/fade-out effect that looks so darn cool in games, as well as additional support for DirectX 11 features. In addition to all this, Nvidia’s Apex technology is now shipping with the UDK.
Epic is also loosening up on the royalty returns, allowing developers/investors/publishers to retain 75% of the income from a project if it makes less than $50,000 in sales.
Devs looking to break out a new idea on a strict budget can scope out all the features, updates and assets of the free Unreal Development Kit by visiting the Official Website.
