Nvidia and Epic Games plan to show off the Unreal Engine 3 for the first time at this week’s Electronic Entertainment Expo.
Nvidia and Epic Games have today announced that the first public showing of the Unreal Engine 3 will take place at this week’s Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) in Los Angeles. Created by Epic Games, Unreal Engine 3 is the first game engine to take full advantage of Shader Model 3.0--a key feature of DirectX 9.0 enabled only by the Nvidia GeForce 6 series of GPUs.
«Together, the Nvidia GeForce 6 series and the Unreal Engine 3 are the perfect solution for developers to meet the challenge of the constantly expanding game worlds and complexities of next-generation PCs and consoles,» said Mike Capps, CEO of Epic Games. «The combination of these products will give E3 attendees a glimpse at the future of gaming.»
«Unreal Engine 3 sets the bar for what games will look like over the coming years,» added Bill Rehbock, director of developer relations at Nvidia. «Working with the Unreal Engine is a compelling proposition for any game developer looking to push their games forward with innovative visuals, physics, and gameplay.»
