Epic Games has announced that Epic Citadel is officially available on Android devices through both Google Play and the Amazon Appstore for Android. The free application allows Android gamers to immerse themselves in the fantasy world of Infinity Blade. Epic Citadel features Epic’s award winning Unreal 3 Engine which has been used to create some of the bestselling and visually stunning titles ever released for console and PC. Epic has also released an update for the title on iOS, optimizing visuals for high-resolution mobile devices. Take a look at the quotes below taken from Epic’s press release to learn more about Epic Citadel.

“‘Epic Citadel’ features beautiful, high-performance graphics that are characteristic of mobile Unreal Engine games. Throughout the app’s development for Android, we worked closely with Epic Games to ensure that the visuals can be experienced on NVIDIA Tegra-based devices in all of their glory,” remarked Tony Tamasi, SVP Content and Technology, NVIDIA.
“Intel is very pleased to see Epic’s award-winning Unreal Engine 3 technology shipping on Android with full native support for x86,” said Mukesh Goel, Director of Ecosystem Enabling, Mobile Communications Group, Intel. “We’re especially excited by the tremendous performance being realized in ‘Epic Citadel’ on the Atom Z2460 platform.”
 
“As the leading supplier of mobile and embedded GPUs for both iOS and Android, Imagination has worked extremely closely with Epic for many years as it has continuously pushed the boundaries of mobile graphics with Unreal Engine technology,” Tony King-Smith, VP of Marketing, Imagination Technologies. “We are delighted that our collaboration is extending into the Android space and that Epic is making such excellent use of our PowerVR GPUs and tools as it brings the best of gaming capability to the rapidly growing Android market.”
