What to Expect from Unreal Engine 4

Epic revealed their new project earlier this year at GDC. The follow-up to the ever-popular Unreal Engine 3, the new project is the Unreal Engine 4, and it's giving us a glimpse of the future of gaming. What can we expect to see from it, and what could it mean for the future? Cassidee from Leviathyn.com gives us the details. (Next-Gen, PC, Unreal Engine 4)

...More Gears of War?

jk, a LOT of devs use this engine so it's best to get used to seeing it now.

I'm more excited for Luminous engine.

Luminous engine's characters are so life-like. Love those hair strands and facial expressions. Brilliant tech demo by SE.

UE4 seems only good for environment and physics. Meh.

I wasn't impressed with the tech demos. Looks like a pretty minimal progression from the latest version of 3.

I agree, it looked like UE3 with a new particle system - I don't develop games though and I think the real upgrade is in it's functionality more so than graphics.

Graphics that will limit and restrict gameplay development.

Dont only blame an engine for its limitations. Look at the hardware being used too. Next consoles are rumored to launch with low end PC graphics hardware, Just so MS and Sony can profit day one.

If that does happen, regardless of whatever engine comes through you wont be seeing a huge jump.

Even for the current gen you can blame MS and Sony for holding the industry back with 6 year old hardware. If you want to talk graphics, the first people u should take it up with is MS and Sony. 6 Year old hardware will perform poorly regardelss of engine.

i dnt see anything special thus far, another reason why im not too hyped for nex gen consoles i can wait 2 or 3 years

Unreal 4 engine was disappointing, the Luminous Engine was far more impressive imo.
R6ex  +   821d ago
Exactly!

While the graphics are what most people are expecting from UE4, I think to me the tools stand out pretty well. I think Epic definitely wanted to balance out the graphics as well as its tools for the hundreds of developers to use.

This video is a pretty good demonstration:

I think you guys are too quick to write off this new engine.
The Luminous demo looked better butis it much more capable?
The UE4 demo shown was run in realtime on high end system with 1 single GPU and I believe 16GB ram. I havent seen the spec's required for the Luminous demo that we saw, so if anyone know please link.

In defence of the UE4 I saw a Developer walktrough for it on youtube and it showed a lot of neat things so IMO it looks all good this far.

Could be good for smaller developers
