Epic Citadel and benchmarking tool land in the Google Play Store

Epic Games finally stepped up to the plate and brought Epic Citadel to Android. It’s a demo tool that shows the power of Unreal Engine 3 by letting you explore 3D locales from Infintiy Blade. You can navigate the locales on your own via touch controls or get a guided tour. This title was made with the same tools and technologies used to develop console and PC games. Just how much can your phone or tablet handle? The included benchmark mode will tell you how many frames per second you have achieved.

Epic Citadel launched on iOS back in 2010 so it’s nice to see some Android love. Check out the video below and hit one of the download links below to get started.

Features:

• Benchmarking mode. “Epic Citadel” allows you to gather performance data for your Android device through benchmarking mode, which includes  frames per second stats as well as quality settings and resolution.

• Realistic reflections and animations. Environment mapping and other high-end rendering techniques produce lifelike reflections, and vertex deformation and skeletal animation bring trees and banners to life with dynamic movements.

• Global illumination. Unreal Engine 3’s built-in global illumination system, Unreal Lightmass, provides realistic lighting and shadows with minimal development resources.

• Dynamic specular lighting with texture masks. Sophisticated graphics features impart a tangible quality to cobblestone roads and vivid reflective marble surfaces, while lens flares and light coronas add dramatic emphasis when panning across light sources.

Robert lives in upstate New York where he was born and raised. Technology was always his passion. His first computer was a Radio Shack TRS80 Color that used a cassette tape to save programs, and his first laptop was a Toshiba T1200FB that sported a CGA greyscale screen and two 720kb floppy drives (no hardrive). From the early 90’s through late 2011, he only owned Motorola phones starting with the MircroTAC all the way through to the Droid X. He broke that streak when he bought the Galaxy Nexus. Now he's sporting a Galaxy Note 4, and absolutely loves it. He has a wonderful wife and a 6 year old son. In his free time he enjoys sports, movies, TV, working out, and trying to keep up with the rapid fast world of technology.
