NVIDIA demos Unreal Engine 3 on Windows 8 and Windows RT

Today, NVIDIA demoed Windows RT running a stunning game called Epic Citadel which uses 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.

“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.”

The game was given to developers last week, the game was ported by Epic and those at NVIDIA. This may change how some gamers are looking at Windows 8 and Windows RT, and will hopefully change their minds about the product.
