    Epic Games previewed progress on their new game, Codename "Project Sword." Later after the small demonstration they released a map demo, where you can walk around and see the breathtaking graphics yourself.

    I took some pictures, thought I should share. It is quite amazing.

    Holy ****.

    EDIT: Just downloaded the app and tried it out. STEP ASIDE SONY AND NINTENDO.

    If Epic can implement controls right, games like these could make dedicated handheld game consoles obsolete.The controls so far work pretty well for looking around and walking.

    Yeah, I think the controls just take some getting used too like most. However, I believe they speeded up the "walking" in this game for a convenience towards the app users.

    I think this settles the debate on which has the more power. PSP or iPhone?

    I downloaded today on my iPad and this game has really amazing graphics. I couldn't believe that the iPad was capable of such graphics!

    i only noticed some lagging in that video on the begining of the game and some places where you can see far far away(nice drawing distances i must say)

    "Controls do take some getting used to however" I think those controls arent there to stay, i think they are going to use nowdays normal gyro fps controls atleast i hope so.

    The graphics look great, but like the Rage Demo there isn't much else going on in the game world. It will be interesting if the performance can be kept up with other AI characters and possibly human players on screen.

    The iPad is a bit faster then the iPhone, so I expected it to run well; however, what really impressed me was how well a 3GS looks and runs. It's not quite up to the speed of the A4 devices, but it's still very detailed and has good anti aliasing.
    I can't wait for a real game to use this engine.
    BTW - Unreal on the iPhone will be more important than Tech5 simply because epic will license it, unlike Bethesda.

    You mean ZeniMax. Correction: ID says they are licensing ID Tech5, but you have to get your game published through Bethesda Softworks.

    What epic and ID considered "licensing" aren't really the same thing if Bethesda is required to oversee your content and distribution.

    I'm not surprised, Epic Games is amazing! They set a new standard for graphics with Gears of War on Xbox 360 back in 2006, and now they're setting a new standard for graphics on mobile devices. The environments look awesome, I can't wait until the full game is released.

    I handed my ip4 to the wife to show her just how good the screen can look since she also has an ip4. It took 30 MINUTES to get my phone back. She couldn't stop walking around and looking. She isn't into gaming so this was quite the testament to the gorgeous graphics they have in this demo.

    My nitpicks are that the music bed loops are too short and get repetitive to the ears. And why are those lamps lit in the township area when it's sunny and daytime?

    wow this game looks incredible. I can't wait for more games to use unreal engine. It's crazy how crisp the sky looks.

    That's not a plane streak.

    It's a Pterosaur recycled gas emission.
