Epic Games, Inc. announces its contributions to the 2011 Game Developers Conference to be held at the Moscone Center in San Francisco next week. Epic will give multiple talks and demonstrate next-generation content running on Unreal Engine 3 (UE3) at its annual press conference and in private theater presentations.

The Future, as Powered by Unreal Engine 3

Epic is set to reveal its proposal for the next generational leap in gaming. Epic’s real-time Unreal Engine 3-powered demonstration takes atmosphere, effects and human characters to new heights. This completely new, high-end demo will be shown to select licensees, partners, prospective customers and the media behind closed doors.

“This technology demonstration is nothing short of breathtaking. It reminds me of when we first showed Unreal Engine 3 to the world and people were amazed,” said Epic Games President Dr. Michael Capps. “It’s like seeing the Unreal Engine all over again for the very first time.”

Epic will provide presentations for licensees, partners and prospective customers on the half hour each day of the expo. Hours for Epic’s booth are the same as expo hours: Wednesday, March 2, 10:00 a.m.– 6:00 p.m., Thursday, March 3, 10:00 a.m.– 6:00 p.m., and Friday, March 4, 10:00 a.m.– 3:00 p.m. Demos are scheduled to run on the half hour each day and appointments are not required but priority will be given to those with appointments. In addition, Epic will host free advanced training sessions for UE3 licensees on topics ranging from content creation best practices to rapid prototyping with Unreal Kismet.

Those wishing to meet with Epic should email Mark Rein at mark.rein@epicgames.com. Please specify three possible meeting times, the number of people planning to attend, and whether those individuals would like to see a technology demonstration, chat with Epic business representatives, speak with Epic technical representatives or discuss other matters. Those unable to confirm an appointment in advance are welcome to drop by, and Epic will do its best to accommodate visitors. In addition, representatives from Epic Games Korea and Epic Games Japan will be on hand to speak with licensees and prospective customers from those regions.

Special Media Presentations

Epic will host two media briefings in its private booth (Business Suite #400, South Hall) on Wednesday, March 2, 2:00-3:00 p.m., and Thursday, March 3, 2:00-3:00 p.m. Thursday’s session will repeat content from Wednesday. Media wishing to attend either event should RSVP to dana.cowley@epicgames.com with their name, media outlet title, number of attendees and day preference.

UE3 licensees are making games for iOS, Android, Sony’s Next Generation Portable, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PC and Mac using Epic’s constantly evolving, award-winning toolset. In addition, countless teams are working with the Unreal Development Kit (UDK), the free edition of UE3, to create games, visualization applications, training simulations, digital films and so much more.
