Unreal Engine 4 Being Brought Natively To FreeBSD By Independent Developer

While FreeBSD has a Linux compatibility/emulation layer that

allows it to run some Linux games

, an independent community developer has been working on porting Epic Games' Unreal Engine 4 to FreeBSD.

FreeBSD developer "malavon" has been porting the Unreal Engine 4 game engine to FreeBSD and in the process getting most of the tech demos / code samples to build.

With this being an unsanctioned port, the support isn't destined for Epic Games' official code-base but is available via the developer's personal repository. The test target has been FreeBSD 11.1 AMD64.

More details on this in-progress Unreal Engine 4 port via

this FreeBSD.org forum thread

. The Phoronix reader who tipped us off to this work was able to try the it and confirm they are in fact working.
