With the new Android release, Epic is also hoping that the work the company put into the new game will help protect game developers against Android fragmentation while simultaneously making it easier for those developers to target the Android platform.

"Epic has now shipped an Unreal Engine app for Android, which means we've invested in plenty of QA testing against a wide range of devices, and we've executed the necessary profiling required for shipping Android games, etc," an Epic spokesperson told The Verge.

"This means that any developer licensing the Unreal Engine for Android benefits from that process - all the work we do gets rolled back into the engine and shared with our licensees."

Apart from the Android release, Epic has also update the iOS version of the app to support the Retina Display on fifth-generation iPhone and iPod touch devices, and also iPad 4. Moreover, there's also a brand new benchmarking mode that will let users test frame rates, quality settings, and resolution details of the app, indicating future cross-platform releases.

"Enter Epic Citadel, the dynamic fantasy setting of the award-winning Infinity Blade. From the circus bazaar to the sweeping cathedral in the center of town, Epic Citadel dazzles with a visual parade of special effects, as only imagined by Epic Games and powered by the critically acclaimed Unreal Engine 3," the official Google Play page states. "Epic Citadel was created using the same tools and technology used to develop high-end console games, now delivered for Android devices!"

The new release's features include the usual expected groundbreaking visuals that take help of the latest advances in Unreal Engine 3 technology. This also assists in delivering high graphics and special effects that add to the game's realistic look.

Apart from this, the company has also worked quite a lot on the realistic reflections and animations with high-end environment mapping and other advanced rendering techniques to produce lifelike reflections, alongside vertex deformation and skeletal animation bringing other inanimate objects to life.

"Sophisticated graphics features impart a tangible quality to cobblestone roads and vivid reflective marble surfaces, while lens flares and light coronas add dramatic emphasis when panning across light sources," the page adds.
