It looks so good but needs more optimization.

DEEP DOWN > unreal engine 4

JhawkFootball061722d ago

I mean it looks pretty good far away, but those closeups did not impress me at all. I'm sure Epic can find better artists than this.

kalkano1722d ago

@JhawkFootball06: Yep. I was impressed with parts, but a couple times I thought "Those don't look like very high-res textures..."


Please read this before posting BS like "PS4 looks very bad, thi is was expected etc"

deep down is the working title for the game, Panta Rhei is the engine's name.

Here's the new Unreal engine 4 tech demo running on a single GTX 680 and looks far more impressive than this tech demo.

and another link from the Nvidia site for any doubters

It looks good but could look better but I don't see why eveyone thinks UE4 is the top engine to compare to. They're will be better engines. Look at "Deep Down" that game looks much better than UE4. Also Killzone: Shadow Fall looks better and it's an "actual game" not a tech demo. I don't trust tech demos that much to begin with becuse they will most likely look worse in a game.

Were they using the final dev kit specs?

BitbyDeath1722d ago

Nope. Sonys own devs didn't have the final specs so no way Epic would have gotten hold of them.

Tsar4ever011721d ago (Edited 1721d ago )

At the press conference 03/20, Mark Cerney said the demo was running on PROTOTYPE ps4 hardware. So it's running on the very earliest hardware specs, 2gb/4gb of gddr5 I believe.

Arai1722d ago

There's also this:

New about this is that Capcom decided to develop Deep Down into it's first PS4 title (info March 27th).
Not sure if anyone posted it yet.
Point being you can clearly see that UE4 is not optimized when compared to Panta Rhei/Luminous Studio.

FrigidDARKNESS1722d ago

Lmao this is not ps4 . This is the same demo when epic games debut ue4 on a pc using a gtx 680

Pandamobile1722d ago

They had this running on PS4 with some of the bells and whistles disabled.

Emilio_Estevez1722d ago

Same demo yes, but it is on a PS4 -

'How well can UE4's cutting-edge visuals translate to next-gen console? At GDC 2013, Epic demonstrated last year's Elemental demo running in real-time from a PlayStation 4 development kit. The studio says that this video is actually captured from PS4 hardware.'

That's the caption for the embedded vid
