    One of the highlights of Apple’s mega eventful media shindig today in San Francisco was a demonstration of Game Center using the forthcoming Epic Games RPG adventure, codenamed “Project Swordâ€, which was presented by Epic Games President, Dr. Mike Capps. The incredible demo was powered by Epic’s award-winning Unreal Engine 3, and now you can also download a little taster of that awesome graphical goodness yourself in the shape of Epic Citadel, which is an application inspired by Project Sword that shows off the technical capabilities of the Unreal Engine 3 on iOS devices. As you can imagine, the demo is at its most jawdropping on the iPad, so grab it right now from the iPad App store here, and either have a wander round the town in Explore mode or marvel at the Guided Tour automatic demo. I honestly can’t believe that this sort of technology is now available on a handheld device. Here’s Dr Mike Capps waxing lyrical about the demo:

    Not much to do in the demo but it looks like it will be a really nice game . Defiantly going to pick it up once it's out and see what it's all about.

    Amazing - a must download, if only to show what's possible to achieve. :)

    Does it require an updated OS or something? I still have 3.2 and don't plan on updating until 4.2

    For a demo without game logic or objects to interact with, I am bit disappointed that the graphics does not achieve 60 FPS. Graphics feels like around 25 to 35 FPS depending on the scene and that gives me headache. Just imagine how slow the graphics would be with full game logic and objects. I hope Epic can optimize the graphics engine further.
