Is LEAD a modification of unreal two or is it 100% proprietary ?

I had no interest in this game until I saw the E3 video, now it is newr the top of my list!

He is mentioning graphical techniques that were used in the newest Unreal Engine used in GeoW2. I think they are just using Unreal again, but it looks pretty darn good though.

It doesn't look like a traditional Unreal engine game....

The lighting engine is custom and its far more advanced than 99% of other lighting systems. I can't wait to see this game in other environments.

I don't get it. If "LEAD is an evolutionary step from the SC:CT Engine": which is known to run on Unreal 2.5 Engine, LEAD still Unreal tech then?

Its similar to the Too Human deal...but without the lawsuit. I'm not sure how it works out LEGALLY, but basically Ubisoft Montreal has been tearing UE2 apart, and modifying it to the point where they are able to call it their "own". I'm sure if there was a problem with how they do this, Epic would have busted them on this long ago. In car speak, it'd be kinda like buying a brand new Chevy 350 big block, then boring the crap out of it, swapping out all the guts with racing-quality parts, adding a bunch of Holley bling, etc., and dropping in a Ford T-bucket. When you're done, its really not a "Chevy" engine anymore.

Chevy doesn't make 350 Big Blocks, all of their 350's are Small Block.. But I see your point. Kudos for knowing something other than video games though. :P

it could be claymation on a vhs camcorder for all i care.
as long as its as fun as past installments thats all i care about.

No wonder they don't want to make the game for the PS3. They are using the fuking Unreal Engine 2... UE3 doesn't works well on PS3, imagine how they'll run a prior version of it!

Now we know for sure that this game will NEVER see the light on
PS3. Even Epic themself had problems with UE3 when making the PS3 version of Unreal Tournament III. =(

You want this game so bad it hurts.


you want MGS 4 , KZ2, GOW 3, infamous,DF 2 so bad.
