As a tease for what it will be showcasing later this month at the Game Developers Conference in San Francisco, Epic Games and Firefox browser maker Mozilla have released a demo reel video showcasing Unreal Engine 4 game content playing at top speed within Firefox.

Epic and Mozilla claim that this video showcases Unreal Engine 4 games playing within Firefox without the need of any additional plug-ins. The video shows off the Epic Soul tech demo, which will likely get a bit more attention when GDC gets underway.

Epic and Mozilla will show off more UE4 in browsers at GDC next week, but in the interim you can check out the video to your left. For more details on how this technology works and what other technology it utilizes, check out this post on the Mozilla blog.

So about it not being able to run on the Wii U?

I love Firefox, and is my browser of choice... But lately I've been running into "out-of-memory" crashes, due to the lack of a 64-bit client (outside of third party or running a nightly build, and even they aren't optimized for the higher memory usage). So while neat, running UE4 engine games will be a bit problematic for users who have a bunch of windows/tabs, a lot of plugins, etc.
