What If Halo 4 Was Powered By Unreal Engine 4

What's the best way to show off your skills? But of course by re-creating famous games in different engines. Polycount's member 'Hristo Rusanov' has shared some images from his WIP map based on Halo 4. This map is being created in Unreal Engine 4, thus giving us a glimpse at what a Halo game would look like in Epic's engine. (Culture, Halo 4, Unreal Engine 4)

Do the current gen games support LAN? I'm legitimately curious. With all the talk of online has LAN been forgotten?

I don't think you know how game engines work.
liquidhalos  +   510d ago
Enlighten me then as to how a game made in a different engine by a completely different amateur team can make halo 4 feel like halo 4 on a pc.

Playing at solid rock silky smooth 8fps is always fun as long as it's bullshots like the ones from the article.
Allsystemgamer  +   511d ago
How is this a bullshot? It's an artists render...

I'm waiting to see what Epic is actually doing with it as they are staying way too quiet atm.

zep  +   511d ago
plastic plastic plastic
TheDevKit  +   511d ago
You do realize that has little to do with the engine itself and is up to the developer utilizing it?

whatever guys but to me all the game that was made using ureal engine last gen looks like plastic
xalener  +   510d ago
Engines don't look like plastic. That's like saying the foundation of your house tastes purple.

Fluchtpunkt  +   511d ago
why don't they use their skills in creating own great shit?
annus  +   511d ago
How dare somebody have a hobby, this is outrageous!!!

Who's to say they don't create their own stuff? Isn't a fan allowed to recreate something in their own spare time?
Kennytaur  +   511d ago
These things always mildly annoy me, it's not just a different engine, but a different art-direction and different target-specs. Never a good comparison of anything other than being fan-art. In fact I'm disappointed that the Halo series is moving towards a more realistic approach, when the more vibrant style of the first games was so great and unique.

That's the problem I had with Halo anniversary edition. It was so jarringly different I couldn't even recognize it as Halo anymore. Thankfully Halo 2 remake looks like it won't suffer from that same problem.
GearSkiN  +   511d ago
i love the art style of halo 4 them rocks looks sick!
Illusive_Man  +   510d ago
He should have rendered Chief and Cortana in the scene with Didact.

Looks great, it could happen. Honestly I think Halo 5 will look amazing. 343 did a fantastic job with Halo 4 so I have full confidence that 5 will really be something. I mean have you seen the screen caps for the cinematics of H2 Anniversary? They could go toe to toe with Blizzard on that. Plus I think that's 343s way of giving a glimpse into what Halo 5 could look like, as Halo always uses the in game engine for it's scripted scenes. I wouldn't even care if it was 720p if it looks like that. Can't come soon enough but the same time I hope MS gives them every second they need/want :)

What if what??

Unreal Engine 4 doesn't make amazing games. Imagination, talent and awesome storytelling makes a great game.

The engine has only a small role in making Halo great.
