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.
• 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.
