Unreal Engine 3 UDK heads to Mac OS X this month

If you are a computer gamer and you happen to prefer the Mac platform the lineup of games is much smaller that the PC gamers have access to. If there is a game made it generally hits the PC along with the game consoles whereas the Mac generally gets left out of the gaming party. That will be changing soon with an announcement from Epic.

Epic uses the Unreal Engine as the platform behind some of its coolest video games for the PC and more. About four years ago, Epic announced that it was bringing some of its most popular franchises to the Mac. That meant that the Unreal Engine needed to come to OS X as well. It has been four years since that promise of Gears of War and Unreal Tournament 3 coming to OS X.

Finally, Epic has announced that it will be bringing the Unreal Engine to the Mac with the Unreal Engine 3 UDK coming this month. Not only does this mean that Epic will finally offer its games for Mac gamers, it also means that other developers that use the Unreal Engine will be able to bring their games to Mac users as well.
