nreal Engine 4 was revealed at the PS4 conference and it was the first thing the Sony showed during the console reveal. The engine looks spectacular and if you remember Epic Games wanted 8GB RAM on both consoles and Sony has granted them by putting 8GB GDDR5 on the system.
The demo we saw looked spectacular and we have the entire trailer and screenshots for you. Unreal Engine 4 is the latest engine from Epic Games and it is their next-gen engine and features a lot of capabilities.
“We are thrilled to build onto our long-established success with PlayStation,” said Tim Sweeney, Epic’s founder and chief executive officer.
“Unreal Engine 4 is expertly designed for the next generation of game development and the outstanding power of PlayStation 4. Today’s demonstration offers a preview of what developers can accomplish using our tools to create games for PlayStation 4.”
In the new presentation, a scene featuring the fiery mallet-wielding Elemental knight picks up where the original demo ends.
Unreal Engine 4’s high-end rendering capabilities are evident, as dynamic lighting and shadowing bring intensity to contrasting volcanic and snowy vistas. Real-time reflections, subsurface scattering and GPU-powered particle effects fill the screen space with visual gems as a new ice behemoth cracks free from a frozen mountain and emerges with a radiant, frosty bellow.
