Mozilla and Epic Games teamed up to bring Unreal Engine 3 to the browser without the use of any plugins.

Unreal Engine is a game engine developed by Epic Games and was first utilised in the 1998 first-person shooter game Unreal. It has also been successfully used in a variety of other game genres including MMORPGs and other RPGs. The code of the engine is written in C++ which gives it a high degree of portability and is used as a tool by many game developers today.

The entire Unreal Engine 3 was reported to have been completely ported by Epic in matter of four days with a few small adjustments. Mozilla intents to make the web a viable platform for games and having the Unreal Engine 3 on its side will certainly help the company achieve this.

Furthermore, Mozilla plans to apply a similar strategy to mobile and the company is already working with premium game publishers such as Disney, EA and ZeptoLab to get their games working and optimized for mobile. According to reports, Mozilla plans to get games to run within 2x of native performance on mobile and the company already has in-house demos in the works.

The actual demo will be available in a few weeks but interested parties can already check Mozilla’s website for more information about the project.
