Unreal Engine 3
Unreal Engine 3 is a computer game engine developed by Epic Games. It is the third generation of Unreal Technology (UE3), designed for DirectX 9/10 PCs, the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
Epic has used this version of the engine for their in-house games Unreal Tournament 3, Gears of War and an improved version for Gears of War 2. Due to aggressive licensing, this current iteration has garnered a great deal of support from several big licensees, including Atari, Activision, Capcom, Disney, Konami, Koei, 2K Games, Midway Games, THQ, Ubisoft, Sega, Sony, Electronic Arts, Square Enix, 3D Realms and more.
- High-quality static lighting with next-generation effects, such as soft shadows with accurate penumbrae, diffuse and specular inter-reflection and color bleeding
- The ability to add fracture effects to static meshes to simulate destructible environments
- soft-body physics
- Simulation of large crowds.
In addition to the game industry, UE3 has also seen adoption by many non-gaming projects including construction simulation and design, driving simulation, virtual reality shopping malls and film storyboards.
In December 2009, Epic demoed UE3 running on Apple's 3rd generation IPod touch. They said that this will also support iPhone 3GS, and also an unknown mobile platform set to be unveiled at CES 2010.link
