Epic Games has released Unreal Engine 4.17 which features support for Microsoft’s upcoming Xbox One X console.
Among other changes, Xbox One X support is a major feature in Unreal Engine 4.17. According to Epic Games, “initial support” for developing titles on the Xbox One has been added to the engine, and full support for the engine will likely follow soon.
Since the Xbox One X is part of the Xbox One and Xbox One S family, developing for Xbox One X does not require a separate build platform.
Popular titles making use of Epic’s Unreal Engine are Gears of War 4, Tekken 7, Street Fighter V, Shenmue 3, RiMe, the upcoming Final Fantasy VII Remake, and Ashen.
The Xbox One X is slated for a global release on November 7th. Sporting six teraflops of computing power and more than 320GB/s of memory bandwidth, the Xbox One will be the most powerful console ever created, according to Microsoft.
