LINUX GAMING --
Epic Games is ending out the month by releasing Unreal Engine 4.9.

The Unreal Engine 4.9 game engine update brings significant improvements to mobile Android/iOS support, Steam VR and Gear VR support updates, experimental DirectX 12 support, editor improvements, and a wide range of renderer advancements to boost the visuals.

More details on the Unreal Engine 4.9 update can be found on the UnrealEngine.com blog.

Side note: Sure would be great if the UE4 Linux demos were updated against the latest engine builds. While there's PTS test profiles for them right now, once they're updated it will be easier and better for benchmarking.
