The Amazon Fire TV has been given the first step towards full Unreal Engine 4 support (which many view as inevitable for the high-powered Android device that is sure to have mainstream support from Amazon’s existing consumer electronics customer-base). Chance Ivey (@iveytron) of development studio Chaotic Moon took it upon himself to get the Unreal Engine 4 up and running without such official support from Epic Games or Amazon, and posted up an entire How-To detailing the steps he took to get there. It makes for a great read, and overall shows that if more time and effort was put in then some sort of stable support will certainly be accomplished. After all, let’s not forget that RAGE from id Software launched on the Apple iPhone 4 way back when (and that tech was so 2011, just think what Amazon Fire TV can accomplish). If you’re a developer or hobbyist interested in trying this out for yourself, check out the Gamasutra link below the following image.
