People let's be honest, it looks impressive, ok there are tons of artefacts, some pixalated textures on close ups on the monster (the mark of each unreal engine :p) and some aliasing , apart from that this look a bigger jump than it was from UE2 to UE3: a really true next-gen engine.
Still not as impressive as Luminous Engine.

Nothing really impressive.

Can't wait for my disagrees! :D

But seriously... I was expecting more. Maybe it is not the right demo to show the engine?

Looks great but Square Enix's Agni's philosophy engine looks better IMO, either way next gen graphics are gonna look awesome!

Honestly, Samaritan was a more impressive demo other than the particles :\

may be the art style

More than that. Samaritan had so much more in terms of overall quality. Maybe it's just a crap quality stream I watched, but Samaritan had sub-surface scattering, amazing specular reflections, and awesome looking character models.

The Unreal 4 demo less than that, with the addition of really awesome particle effects...

That's not to say this doesn't look great, it's just not as big of a jump from Unreal 3 as I was expecting.

"but Samaritan had sub-surface scattering, amazing specular reflections"

Then watch this:

Edit: at below, you answered me in less than 4 minutes while the video lasts more than 10 minutes, you probably didn't even reach the part of your acclaimed "sub-surface scattering, amazing specular reflection". Take your time and take it easy!

Well, that eases some of my concerns, but still, the demo itself didn't represent the technology as well as it could have in my opinion.

@Your edit, didn't have the time to watch the entirety of the 10 minute clip right now, so I skipped through bits of it. Will watch thoroughly tomorrow.

Amazing loving the UE 4, I bet this 2 min videos cost more then 50k to make imagine a 8-20 hour game will cost.
Godmars290  +   784d ago
Better to imagine $120 games. With a 1/3 of the actual game being additional DLC at added costs.

For those reasons, that something like this adds nothing to the overall quality of a game, its actual content and only makes reduced resources look better, I really have to wonder why most other posts are going to be about creaming in your pants.

Look at the 10 minute tech demonstration video :)

Everything can be changed and modified in real time which cuts down on iteration time by a huge amount. When gameplay designers can jump in and test what they've created with zero delay, it makes for a much higher quality of game (much better debugging process as well)

I don't think the cost of production will increase with this generational gap as it did with the last one.

The on the fly changes to source code is pretty amazing too.

Right, with more complex graphics comes more efficient workflow.

Similar to what happens when a new die size is released for hardware: e.g., 32nm to 22nm — it dramatically reduces heat and power requirements, which is then countered by more transistors and faster clock speeds, thus improving actual performance. Same logic with the next gen engines and the development process.

The money comes in actually developing the new tech; not necessarily implementing it.

I'm a little bit bugged how they advertised this as the start of next gen kinda. Other engines like Cryengine have shown next gen graphics for a long time now....

im a big ps3 fan and even i say for the first time of ALL the graphics i have ever seen of pc that this makes all the gloating you pc fans do about pc seem like its about true for once, dont know about a generation above but definitely impressive
GamingTruth  +   784d ago
you all disagree with me even though me a non pc gamer applauded something from your platform for once, and some of your own fellow pc gamers are bashing it in favor of other games and engines that i would say dont come near unreal engine 4 and disagree with me? thats n4g for you, you can only get that here
Dispy  +   784d ago
yep that's N4G. No logic. Ever.
AngelicIceDiamond  +   784d ago
Amazing, Sony or MS, somebody needs to get on this.
MerkinMax  +   784d ago
Whoa, that was awesome. I'm a huge sucker for particle effects.
