Epic Games debuted the latest tech demo for its next generation Unreal Engine 4 technology at the Game Developers Confernece in San Francisco. Watch it below.
It looks great, but I personally would love to see how they handle non realistic graphics, like cell shading techniques, on next gen consoles.
that was theatre quality stuff excellent
hmmm it looks amazing but i think square enix engine is better
Even if so, they don’t plan on licensing it out to other studios so only their games will benefit from its tech.
ehh looks good, but there are other engine’s out there that are much better
CryEngine 3? I agree
That certainly is the best looking one on the market. Utterly unbeatable in term of graphics.
I have high hope for Square’s Luminous Studio, too. Here’s hoping that the by the time it is complete, we’ll have an engine that can truly bring forth an unbreakable illusion of being able to deliver Visual Works’ CG quality in real-time. Angi’s Philosophy, for example, still has certain aspects (like AA) that can be improved upon.
Parallax Occlusion Mapping since 5 years ago.. CryTek has been far ahead with ACTUAL games.
Probably have the most technically impressive multi-platform game too.
Square’s Luminous engine looks the best hands down
It’s not just about looking good, CryEngine is ‘heavy’ as f***!
Off topic, but I wonder when are we going to see the next tech demo from tri-Ace? By the way, I’m also curious as of when Square might deliver another fine presentation of the Luminous Studio (that isn’t Agni’s Philosophy…)
We’ll most likely see Luminous in an actual game, come E3. tri-Ace’s engine is the one I want to see more of though. I’m curious as to what they’ll be putting it to work on. I’d also like to see Platinum’s next gen engine. Kojima mentioned it offhandedly in an interview about Rising, so I’m interested in seeing that.
Even the Fox Engine looks better. Kojima’s Fox engine is quite impressive. I heard Ubisoft is developing a new engine.
More than being impressed by the tech, I just find myself hoping Epic keeps one of these concepts for an IP next gen. Samaritan showed me they could make impressive tech demos back in 2011, cool. Now let’s see them put their own tech to work on something new.
Well, they’re all starting to look the same. CryEngine, Fox, UE and Square’s.. (diminishing returns in graphics.. we’re kinda hitting it)
And so I give more credit to CryTek as how far early they’ve actually presented an actual game.
LOL Too many Unreal Engine 4 fanboys giving thumbs downs. I can’t wait for a CryEngine 4. Nvm that would be overkill. I do like Luminous Engine and the Fox Engine as well.
I wonder if it’s just as lazy a piece of tech as UE3, in that, it’s nothing more than a cheap, crappy “quick” engine instead of one that builds games of quality.
Let’s not forget the Infiltrator GDC demo was indeed running on a single GTX 680 card, but the underlying machine was a workstation with 16 Gb of RAM…
