During yesterday’s beginning of Google I/O 2014, Google decided to show off a demo video which displays the Unreal Engine 4 built game Rivalry running on Android. This is to show PC-class gaming on Android and, of course, in conjunction with Nvidia’s upcoming Tegra K1 chipset.
About a week ago we reported on a sort of demo game from Epic which was released onto Google Play to show the flexibility of their Unreal Engine 4 in regards to mobile game development. Tappy Bird was the full demonstration game that they released and while it may not have been a massive buffet of visual eye candy, it did do the trick in some ways to show that you don’t need to be a massively experienced programmer to use Unreal Engine 4.
Qualcomm has released a new video showing how Epic is bringing high-end game graphics to mobile with the newest iteration of their Unreal Engine. Even though this is basically a demo reel showing off some rendered landscapes made with Unreal Engine 4, they are still impressive, especially when you take into account that these environments are on a mobile device.
The other day Rovio began teasing a new Angry Birds game, emphasizing the word ‘epic’ about twenty times in the process. Well more details are out and guess what this game is called?

Essentially a morally conscience Angry Birds game. Now that company is teasing another new Angry Birds title which they are boasting will be quite the ‘epic’ game when it arrives.
More news coming out from Nvidia during SIGGRAPH 2013 but this time instead of it being hardware related with showing off their upcoming Kepler GPU along with Project Logan which, when their forces are combined, create Voltron… I mean Tegra 5. This bit of news is in regards to software being shown off running on the Kepler GPU and it isn’t some little game engine or anything like that.
A couple of weeks ago we talked about Gameloft and Fox Entertainment who happen to look like they are becoming quite close friends since they keep teaming up for new games to release onto Android. The one we happened to be talking about then is a new game called Epic which happens to now be available on Google Play.
Gameloft and Fox Entertainment seem to have a pretty nice relationship going in regards to bringing movie spin-off games to mobile and the two companies are once again teaming up for another game that will be heading to Android and iOS soon called Epic. This particular game will be based off of the upcoming animated movie of the same name.
