We’ve talked numerous times in the past how Epic and their games division have not released, nor ever had plans to release, anything on Google Play. It’s been a topic of conversation here on the site plenty of times and how we have always felt that it is stupid that they don’t release anything for Android, only iOS. So imagine our surprise when we got a tip saying that Epic Citadel was now available on Google Play.
Niklas Smedberg of Epic Games made an interesting statement during GDC Europe 2012 citing that mobile is now the new PC in terms of gaming. This is a fact we have been saying for the past year and a half at least but that is besides the point. It is interesting in that this is coming from Epic Games and the statement goes as far as saying that right now mobile is “starting to competing with current consoles”.
Last week we broke the story about Gameloft’s first Unreal Engine built game and the fact it would be called Wild Blood thanks to a little sleuthing on the part of one of our readers. Gameloft has decided to just come right out and announce that the game’s name is indeed Wild Blood. Along with this, Gameloft has released the first trailer for it.
Last week we reported on Gameloft announcing their first Unreal Engine 3 built game, along with some art to tease everyone with. Thanks to an anonymous tip, we now have new information about this game or at least what it could very well be called. Let us jump into it shall we?
Gameloft just informed us about their first Unreal Engine 3 made game, something we talked about was going to happen awhile ago and now it seems to be coming along nicely. In total, Gameloft is supposed to have 4-5 Unreal Engine 3 developed games and now we get to take a quick look at the first one.
We haven’t flogged the Unreal Engine horse enough lately so it is about time we gave it another round. This comes courtesy of Alan Willer, Epic Games’ senior technical artist who has mentioned that the upcoming Unreal Engine 4 won’t be coming to current-gen smartphones and tablets.
Gameloft has come out pretty strong at this year’s E3 show but there was an absence in the list of games and trailers that were announced. This absence was that of their currently unnamed first Unreal Engine based game. Their previous Unreal Engine game, March of Heroes, never made it out of demo status.
