Unreal Engine 3 Demonstrated on Windows RT

/ Aug 31st, 2012 1 Comment

NVIDIA and Epic Games have unleashed some exciting news for gamers. During an electronics trade show on Wednesday, the two companies unveiled the Unreal Engine 3 (UE3) running on Windows 8 and Windows RT (Windows 8 for tablets).

The surprising demonstration showed an Asus tablet running the Windows 8 operating system (OS) for tablets and demoing Epic Games’ Epic Citadel application. The app has already been released for iOS and Flash but this most recent demonstration exhibited that the Windows RT for tablets could support the celebrated UE3.

So why is this such big, wonderful news? For anyone unfamiliar with the accomplishments of UE3, here are a few acclaimed games who operate on its technology: the Mass Effect series, the Gears of War series, the Batman series, as well as the Borderlands and Bioshock series. Thus, when this demo presented a “full PC implementation of the Unreal Engine 3,” which functioned smoothly with aesthetically pleasing graphics, developers’ fingers may have sparked.

“For developers who have games on PC or Xbox, it’s pretty easy for them to port it over to Windows RT and have it up and running in no time and looking great” said the NVIDIA lab demonstrator.  Near the end of his commentary, the demonstrator noted that the “future for Windows RT is looking pretty bright with this announcement.”

For any tech-lovers reading, the official press release came fully loaded with some hefty techie lingo.

“The Unreal Engine 3-powered Epic Citadel demonstration for Windows RT tablets implements our full DirectX 9 pipeline, with shaders and materials, all running beautifully on Tegra 3,” Vice President of Epic Games Mark Rein said. “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.”
