Half Life 2 Re-created In Unreal Engine 4 Gives Hope for Half Life 3
Amazing screenshots emerge of City 17 in UE4 – could Half Life 3 look this good?
Half Life 3 is probably never going to be released but if Valve Software decided today to release the game – or even remake Half Life 2 – using Unreal Engine, it would look almost as stellar as a recent batch of screenshots that have emerged.
Essentially, artist Jeannot van Berlo posted to the Polycount forums about how he’s re-created City 17 in the style of Unreal Engine 4 (using the Unreal Engine 3 SDK). The goal now is to recreate the entire city using UE4.
“I’m working every day to port this to the new Unreal Engine 4. There’s lots of work that was unfinished not to mention that I have to redo all the materials and many textures because of the awesome physically-based shading in Unreal Engine 4. There’s a lot more content in this level that I haven’t shown yet and I probably won’t until it’s all finished.”
Thoughts on the same? Hopes that Half Life 3 would look this good? Let us know in the comments.
