Now running on Windows 8 and Windows RT

Another conversion is completed by Epic and the Unreal Engine 3 has been converted, or ported, if you will, to both Windows 8 and Windows RT, making it possible for Unreal Engine 3 titles to be converted to both platforms or new titles to be developed.

The Unreal Engine 3 uses the full DirectX 9 pipeline, so the version running on Windows RT is quite good, and the possibility for high-end titles is possible and they will look good (rather than a crummy mobile conversion).

This is exciting news for those thinking about Windows RT tablets, as the high-performance ones should be able to play some pretty darn powerful games provided developers embrace the Unreal Engine 3 for Windows RT as the development engine of choice.
