      Since it is free, at least I can't buy this one in advance, anticipating Linux support is coming "soon".

        I was on the stream when this was shown. At first the image was still and I thought it must be concept art, and then it moved. There are still details I want to see changed, and the devs said they'll note that, so all is going well. Note that this is still super early and this demo will be dropped in only like next month.

        It's also already running natively on Linux. Building is reportedly still tricky, but doable.

          There have been screenshots of UT3 runing on Linux, so I won't be excited until I see the new UT running on *MY* system.

            Subscribe to UE4 and you can build and run it on your system right this instant!

              Yeah, the source is available for pretty cheap. I would probably put more blame on the Linux community than on Unreal (at this point anyways) if the game didn't work natively on Linux.

              Never the less, it does work natively, so no need to blame anything.

                Is this another OpenGL 3.x title?

                  The UE4 builds I've run so far had two modes, GL 3.2 and 4.3. 4.3 mode crashes somewhere in libnvidia though on the current Nvidia binaries (tested 337 and 340).

                    Nice to hear that it isn't GL 4.x only.
