The Dark Sorcerer Demo Ran on Ported Beyond Engine, Will Use a New Engine For Developement

David Cage revealed that, shockingly enough, The Dark Sorcerer tech demo was just built on the ported Beyond: Two Souls engine. (Beyond: Two Souls, David Cage, PS4, The Dark Sorcerer)

It isn't that surprising to me. Rarely does a console max out the power of an engine. PC's are more likely to max out a developers engine. I mean usually developers make the engines for PC and then port it over to consoles downscaling the games on the consoles. I know this isn't on PC but you get the point.

That's not how QD works. This was a tech demo to explore the PS4 HW with tech at hand, hence the Beyond engine. David Cage stated before that the studio usually ties the game (story) to technology and thus writes a new engine for each game.

This sounds big, but the truth is, if the same team is working on the next game, the engine is most likely an evolution - but with the freedom to start over from scratch, throwing legacies over board. Nice idea ... if you can afford it. QD can, looks like.

It's a surprise to me I wouldn't think that tech demo would be using the Beyond Engine. But, if that's the case it looks amazing.
Alexious  +   322d ago
Yeah, it's amazing. I can only imagine what they'll do with the full power of PS4.

I have been looking at new footage of BEYOND 2 Souls and the game looks like it could easily be on next-gen.

Amazing. Simply wow. I am eagerly awaiting their ps4 title.

I cant even fathom how good their Ps4 title will look. I thought Heavy Rain was very realistic on ps3 and now they have more power with ps4.

Its a good time to be a gamer!!!!

By the way currently playing

Kz merc (awesome and def. is like a console game. Big homage to kz2, also some Kz sf mixed in in terms of backdrops and locations)

Puppeteer. Great kids game and a solid 80 if i reviewed it. Its actually getting better and better the more i play it so my mark might be higher.

Kingdom Hearts. Only played it for bit because Kz merc kept calling me but the knew HD visuals look bright and nice!!! Allows 1080p native res....

Wow. Mind blown!!!

Definitely. I hope they create a game out of this tech demo as they usually do, it could be fun to play as the old Wizard.

Jesus and i thought it was a new engine.

Well then a new engine designed specifically for the PS4 hardware should provide some extremely interesting results.

I cant wait to see more.

This was known since E3 (or right after). In fact, it was stated by one of the devs that it was using their PS3 engine/tools ported to PS4 and didn't use any of the advanced PS4 tools, only used 4GB ram, etc. They just pumped up the graphics courtesy of the PS4's GPU.

I posted a link here a while back in one of the articles about this, but can't find it now.
And it's still impressive months after seeing it the first time.
