Unreal Engine Running on Apple Devices

At today’s Apple keynote event, Epic Games showed up to tease a new game they’re working on called Project Sword. Showing off some of the 3D gameplay the game will make possible, using Epic’s Unreal Engine (the same game engine used for Gears of War, Mass Effect, and more), they’ve made a free app available to download from iTunes. It’s called “Epic Citadel,” and it’s basically a FPS-style 3D castle/village environment for you to wander around in and take a look at what the Unreal engine can do on iPod, iPhone, or iPad.

I just downloaded the iPad version and have to say, I’m impressed. The controls are simple and intuitive, and the eye candy is definitely something to behold. Check out the handful of screenshots I just took (below), and then go to iTunes to download the app for yourself. Epic is making its Apple development tools available to other game makers, which opens the door to a whole new era of gaming on Apple’s portable devices.
