Ethan Carter is one of the first Unreal Engine 4 games on Playstation 4 (aside from Daylight and Ether One). To achieve this, The Astronauts actually provided an upgrade from the game’s original PC release which shipped using Unreal Engine 3. According to the development team, they chose to do this for additional effects and to offer further improvement, but also because the PS4 doesn’t actually support Unreal Engine 3.
Here’s the problem. While Ethan Carter is, unquestionably, among the most beautiful Playstation 4 releases to date, it hasn’t proven to us that other, faster-paced games originally developed using this engine compliment the platform and make it the primary destination to experience future UE4 games
