NVIDIA shows off Unreal Engine 3 on Windows RT and Windows 8

NVIDIA has demoed Windows RT running a game called Epic Citadel using the Unreal Engine 3.

This game was first demoed by Apple, a couple of years ago at WWDC and the announcement of the iPhone 4. This game pushes graphics on mobile systems to a whole new level.

This took place at the ASUS Vivo Tab RT (the device formerly known as Tablet 600) press conference held at IFA 2012 this week in Berlin. This was the first public showing of an Unreal Engine 3-based application on the Windows RT platform.

“The Unreal Engine 3-powered ‘Epic Citadel’ demonstration for Windows RT tablets implements the full DirectX 9 pipeline, with shaders and materials, all running beautifully on Tegra 3,” said Mark Rein, vice president of Epic Games. “By porting the full engine as opposed to a modified mobile version, NVIDIA and Epic have made it easy for UE3 developers around the world to bring their best content to Windows RT, Windows 8 and NVIDIA’s Tegra 3 processor. Windows RT code is available to licensees from Epic now and we’re excited to see the great games they develop with it.”
