Their lighting tech has been detailed.
Geomerics a leading software company providing tools and support to consoles and PC out there have released a new video of how Enlighten–their new lighting engine–looks on the PS4. These could be running on target PS4 specs on the PC, but looks great nonetheless.
Their tech can be found in games like Battlefield 3, Medal of Honor: Warfighter, Dragon Age 3, Need for Speed: The Run and EVE Online.
“We are delighted to be working on PlayStation 4. The hardware is everything we were hoping for in a next generation console, and a huge step forward from the current generation,” Chris Doran, the founder of Geomerics said said.
“Real-time global illumination was a big deal for games running on the current generation of hardware, but it required developers to make some compromises. With PlayStation 4, those days are behind us. We can finally unleash the full power of Enlighten, and allow game developers working on PlayStation 4 games to bring far deeper levels of dynamism and quality to game lighting. We cannot wait to see what developers produce with Enlighten.”
We had also interviewed Doran and he had a lot of interesting things to say about the tech. You can read that here.
