One month after releasing Unreal Engine 4 and talking about Unreal Engine 4 Linux support, Epic Games released Unreal Engine 4.1 preview today and it's paired with first-rate Linux support.

With today's Unreal Engine 4.1 Update Preview is support for packaging and deploying games on SteamOS / Linux systems. The Unreal Engine 4.1 source code has the necessary support for handling Linux.

The 4.1 source code has initial support for running and packaging games for Linux and SteamOS. We love Linux!"
