Back in the beginning of the month, we reported that Epic Games would be releasing the first major update for its Unreal Engine 4, bringing it to version number 4.1. At the time, the most notable additions stated were support for SteamOS and Linux. While those are still indeed part of 4.1, the big news is that official support for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One has also been added as well. "With the release of Unreal Engine 4.1, all subscribers who are registered Xbox or PlayStation developers, including members of the ID@Xbox independent developer program, can receive access to the engine's complete source code for their respective console platforms, at no extra cost." The complete list of supported platforms include: "PC, Mac, iOS, Android, Xbox One, PlayStation 4 (including Morpheus VR support), SteamOS, Linux, HTML5, and Oculus VR technologies."

There's a slew of other features and updates, so if you're an Unreal Engine 4 subscriber (or simply curious), be sure to check out the complete 4.1 Release Notes.
