Video: Full Unreal Engine 3 running on Windows 8/RT

Epic brings full PC-spec engine to new Windows tablet devices

Epic and nVidia have released a video offering the first demonstration of Epic's Unreal Engine 3 running on a Windows 8/RT tablet device.


The popular engine is seen running the Citadel demo which has been previously used to demonstrate the tech on iOS platforms.

Crucially, Epic says it has brought the full PC-spec Unreal Engine 3 to the platform - not a cut-back mobile port - which will offer Windows RT developers the full UE3 feature set.

"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," saysEpic Games vice president Mark Rein.

"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."

Here's the video, showing the Citadel demo running on an Asus Vivo Tab RT.
