UDK Support Coming to iOS; Epic Citadel Surpasses 1 Million Downloads

By Unreal Engine

CARY, NC –Epic Games announced today at the Korea Games Conference that iOS support is coming to the Unreal Development Kit. UDK, which now has more than 350,000 unique installations, will soon be capable of producing games for iOS devices. UDK is the free edition of the award-winning Unreal Engine 3, giving users uncompromised access to the professional development framework used by many of the world’s greatest video game developers.

On September 1, Epic demonstrated its newly announced game, codenamed “Project Sword,” at the Apple Special Event at San Francisco’s Yerba Buena Center for the Arts. Developed by Epic’s Chair Entertainment, “Project Sword” is the new action adventure role-playing game for iOS devices that will be released this holiday season.

That day, Epic also released “Epic Citadel” a free download in the iTunes App Store. “Epic Citadel” lets users explore one of the Unreal Engine 3-powered environments from “Project Sword.” In its first 10 days of release, “Epic Citadel” was downloaded by more than 1 million iOS users and hailed by the media as a milestone event in mobile gaming.

“Epic Citadel” is available for iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, third-generation iPod touch, fourth-generation iPod touch and iPad.

UDK users already have the power of Unreal Engine 3 at their disposal and will soon be able to focus their creations on supported iOS devices. UDK is available for free download at http://www.udk.com/download. Also at http://www.udk.com are showcase games, developer diaries and video tutorials to help users get started building their own Unreal-powered worlds.

“Dungeon Defenders” was one of Epic’s original showcase games used to demonstrate how to use the UDK. Florida-based Trendy Entertainment created several developer diaries and released the source code for the game so UDK developers could learn from their experiences.

Recently, Trendy became a full Unreal Engine 3 licensee so they could develop “Dungeon Defenders” for Xbox LIVE Arcade, PlayStation Network and mobile platforms. The developer recently posted YouTube footage of “Dungeon Defenders” running on iPhone and Android.
