Epic’s Cliff Bleszinski is hoping that a next generation Unreal Engine 4 game will look so good that some people just won’t believe the graphics are genuine.
The demo was impressive but I wouldn't claim faked. Be that as it may though, still way better then anything this gen by far.
I wasn't really impressed by the "tech demo" from Epic either. LMK when they have a show a "game" being played with their new engine instead of tech demos of what appeared to be a cutscene presentation. We can hear in-game graphics until the cows come home. Until we see it from an actual gameplay perspective? How can we pass judgement. What I saw was really nice but far from mind blowing or crying foul/fake, since what I was viewing was not actual an actual game being played. Now if you can give us gameplay graphics like that? I will be extremely impressed.
The engine interview/tour on gametrailers was much more impressive than the actual trailer for the engine. You should watch that instead.
Gears started out as a tech demo. Long before it was a game. I assume you blew off the Kara tech demo too. Beyond looks amazing. Star Wars 1313 looks nice and is gameplay. Even it developers can't get that day one. A tech demo's quality can eventually be reached in a full game. I wouldn't dismiss it yet.
Kuro, good to know. I will check gametrailers out when I get home.
In the full version of the engine tour, he's walking around the whole area in first person view. He even does some jumping.
Kudos Kuro and + bubz..I forgot they were showcasing the engine on that special. Somebody up that link for us lazy N4Gers..read me..lol Evil
cliff? Who's cliff? You mean cliffyB... It's ok though we forgive you
i was not impressed at all, not even one bit. I noticed afew improvements like light, shadow and particles improvements but its not a huge leap and level from what the current generation was from the last. The devs have been saying next generation graphics will look close to Avatar graphics....so far all the supposedly next gen games and tech demo they showed at E3 including UE4 looks more like a PS1 graphics compared to Avatar. Looks like we are not gonna get Avatar like graphics in realtime next gen as the devs have claimed before. I am very disspointed.
lol, Sorry Cliff, you're not a Sony developer, so you automatically get too much clout to ever have anyone think you're stuff's fake. XD
Uh dude, the Unreal engine is used on A LOT of PlayStation games :/ Here's a list, buddy. http://en.wikipedia.org/wik...
*woosh* Right over your head, unfortunately...
I'm pretty sure they'll be as real as the money needed to buy a machine powerful enough to see it.
Around $1200 real.
1200... each videocard.
That demo ran on a single 680 which is not $1200
Square Enix's tech demo looked better. Probably even Samaritan looked better.
The lava really impressed me, the generic art direction didn't help the demo tho.
The only thing I wanna see from the new engine is no more texture pop in... It seems like half of the developers using U3 engine figured out how to get rid of it or at least minimize it, but games like Borderlands or Enslaved have almost a 4 second delay on textures and it's really anoying and distracting
Huh. Back in my day (which is today) I focused on the gameplay itself; what was in front of me and not at the sides of my FOV.
If you only care about gameplay, then why are you commenting on a thread about next gen graphics??
He still thinks the "Cake is a lie" joke is still funny, cut him some slack.
Because there's no rule against it. Plus don't get me wrong, I would love to play a gorgeous looking game too, but people acting as if we NEED it when we dont. What we need is an industry that can pick itself back up to the way they used to be.
I wouldnt think they were faked. I will admit though, I myself did think: this is clearly a cutscene. But I didn't realise that it was a cutscene made entirely of 3D models. It's like in Max Payne 3; cutscenes were made from in-game material. The demo might not have been a game (perhaps it was ;P) but still. Really good. Can't wait to play a game THAT good... even if I do think Epic are a little over their heads. I mean they say that no one has used Unreal Engine 3 to it's full potential and yet they're so hypocritical as neither have they.
A lot of people tend to admit it didn't exactly excel the Samaritan demo.
I wasn't that impressed. Samaritan was so much better. This demo was probably rushed to get it out during E3 week.
I'm not surprised by tech demos......It's all about getting the engine out to developers and seeing what unfolds..
Unreal has always had a look about their games. Beefy models yes. Screen tearing - many of the games yes. But it also has a shiny, glossy look to some textures that makes no sense. Or is over used.
Epic do have a track record of putting out Bull Shots. So my guess is that they probably WILL be faked.
Why are we constantly persuing the sense of realistic visuals in our games? What happened to creativity and originality and a sense of unique style and identity with presentation? Why must everything look 'life like' Don't get me wrong, there are many BRILLIANT games with 'realistic' visuals, but I like to occasionally play games to get away from reality. It seems that this is becoming more and more of a focus. I don't see games ever being completely realistic looking. Things like animation and AI are just too hard to replicate. At least to the point where it's indistinguishable. Maybe we're inching closer TO that, but I'd much rather play something stylized and unique than realistic any day of the week. Not to mention the games age a LOT better because what may look realistic now, certainly won't in 5 years.
there is definetely a difference between a unreal game play and unreal CG trailer, and the difference is not positive.
Too all and any developers "GRAPHICS" do not make an game.If your gameplay suck then your game will suck no matter how good it look.Crysis 2 had great graphics but the story was garbage. I think so many developers no longer have great ideal anymore so they try too rely on the gimmick of graphics.I rather have unreal gameplay and decent graphics any day.If you have an top of the line HD tv your game will look amazing no matter what.
Says the king of bullshots
In fact it is disappointing. Luminous Engine looks a lot better.
Not impressed. Square Enix's tech demo was far better in my opinion.
I agree the Luminous Engine demo was better, but has there been any confirmation on the specs of the pc that ran it? I can't imagine it working on one of...anything really. Maybe a Flux Capacitor. I don't doubt that next generation consoles will surpass this demo after a period of optimization though.
Sorry. Wasn't impressed. I'm not sure it's the engine or the tech demo but it didn't look anywhere near the level that would make me think it's fake. Hell, Star Wars 1313 looked better. The Samaritan demo looked way better too.
Sqaure's Luminous engine I would dare call fake, or at least too ambitious. Unreal Engine 4 demo I would call damn cool.
lmao soo he basically want last of us or soul sacrifice looking games on current gen??? welll ONLY ON PLAYSTATION!!!!
It may be discernible from being "faked" but it's still an impressive engine.
