Unreal Engine 4: prepare yourselves for next-gen

Epic Games showed off its gorgeous Unreal Engine 4 during GDC. VG247′s technologically inept Stephany Nunneley witnessed and felt the hotness in the standing-room only mini-theater.

" I am probably not the best person to send to engine tech demos, as you probably gleaned from my FOX Engine and Battlefield 4/Frostbite 3 reports. It’s hard enough for me to program my DVR, let alone understand what’s going on with shaders, Javascript, HTML, or WebGL. The only thing I know about C++ is that it’s used to run some of my games – and I only know this because I see listed in the program files on my PC’s control panel." (PS4, Unreal Engine 4, Xbox One)

It looks great!

STILL; I'm excited to see if the next generation will turn out like this generation; I think we can agree that Unreal Engine 3 did not end up as the best looking engine for PS3/Xbox 360.
Which kind of excites me ^^

Yes and no. Gears 3 is still one of the best looking games this gen, or Judgment, so the improvements made during this gen allowed it to stay at the top with the best engines (on console).

Naturally, some of the ugliest games were also made by the UE3. It is more down to the developer I suppose.

Yes, Gears 3 looks very good. But do you REALLY mean that it is on pair with Crysis 2, Uncharted 2/3, Battlefield 3 or The Last of Us and Beyond: Two souls?

It definitely looks great. One of the best? hmm..
it's just got that "oh this is obviously a UE3 game"-feel to it..maybe that ruins it for me.

I hope we won't see that so clearly with UE4.

According to to who ? From what I read and see its running the latest tech demo on early Dev kit without a problem...

According to xbox fanboys who like to talk stupid crap but can't back it up.
ANIALATOR136  +   480d ago
I meant it could be optimised to look more like the PC version in time. People are jumping to conclusions, I'm not an xbox fan I'm a PS3 fan but believe the engine still needs some work as they said it wasn't using full power

Im more excited to see naughty dog or santa monica's engine for the ps4. They just seem to know how to push the system further with their own engine.

Edit: Its good to see Unreal Engine 4 will be used by alot of 3rd party devs.

I agree, Unreal engine games have always looked mediocre mid console cycle.
And if this is what mediocrity will look like next generation, I'm holding my seat to what Naughty Dog, Geurilla and SA will do for sure.

hopefully no texture popups like with UE3...

With 16x the memory (and better memory at that) it shouldn't be such an issue. PS4 anyway.

Pc is allready next gen.

Of course it is. It upgrades every year, but consoles released this year will be able to do anything from 2012 or 2013 on PC at high settings. This tech demo is only the begining of what next wave of PC games will look like. This is the potential max of what next gen console games can look like. PC can scale past 3 Tflops to 6 Tflops and beyond in 2013-2015.

PS4 is aiming its bandwidth as high as NVIDIA 680 for its setup as well as using HLSL and other things to get the code closer to running directly off the hardware for faster frames. So there is alot of potential there for games to scale up to something very similar to UE4's tech demo on the system.

but how are you gonna make console users believe?
