A futuristic setting and lots of dynamic lighting await.
A new tech demo for Epic Games’ next generation Unreal Engine 4 has been released. And while it may not show any particular game at work, it does reveal an extraordinary amount of detail and lighting effects. Check it out above.
As part of their push for development in the eighth generation of console and PC hardware, Epic Games has been working on Unreal Engine 4 since 2003. We got our first glimpses of the engine over the past year, and when Sony unveiled that UE4 would be figuring on the PlayStation 4, the mind simply boggled at what could be achieved.
Of course, while no real games have been showcased as running with the new engine, just the possibilities of its voxel cone tracing and improved C++ visualization are enough to get developers excited. As for just a hint of what kind of visuals they could achieve, check out the demo above and be amazed.
