While we sadly don't hear too much these days from Unigine on the Linux gaming front, their high-end 3D graphics engine remains Linux-compatible and they seem to be doing well off in the area of simulations and more. Unigine 2.0 has been out in preview form since last year and coming out today is the second beta.

Unigine 2.0 Beta 2 brings support for Physically-Based Rendering (PBR), Screen-Space Reflections (SSR), a new SDK browser, an add-ons system, Virtual Reality Peripheral Network (VPRN) protocol support, support for the Kinect 2, an updated vegetation library, and many other improvements.
