NVIDIA & EPIC Brings Unreal Engine 3 to Windows 8 & Windows RT
NVIDIA and Epic Games announced this morning that they have ported Unreal Engine 3 to Windows 8 and Windows RT! NVIDIA demonstrated Unreal Engine 3 running on an ASUS Windows RT tablet powered by Tegra 3 at the IFA expo in Germany. This was the first public showing of an Unreal Engine 3-based application on the Windows RT platform. This is a big leap forward for the Windows ecosystem, because one of the world’s premier game engines is now available for developers to create amazing new games. It gives developers unprecedented support for porting PC and Xbox games to a mobile platform, and vice versa. You can see the video clip below.
“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.”
