Someone managed to sneak a camera into the closed-door event for Epic's next-gen Unreal 3 demo.
This is YouTube footage: you won't have to register and download anything to see it.
if i want graphics i gonna grab popcorn and go to cinema! Start making better story and fun gameplay,not uberlazerawesomnes graphic -,-
Aren't you the guy who up until it's release wouldn't stop crying about your anticipation of Killzone 3?
Lol, you got Prcko there.
amazing !!! I hope games will reach this quality of realism finally.. its like a ps4 game... Next gen consoles are in the next door ...I think what GPU this is running on, anybody knows ? I heard its a GTX 580..
Epic never delivers on its tech demo's vs games.
Ermm...yes they do.
Bluwulf & Big_Dom ... both of u are stating something not backed up by reference. So both of ur argument will be considered null/void till any of u is able to provide any.
...Gears of War looked mighty close to their original Unreal tech demo.
Why did epic not want to show this to the whole world? It looks amazing. That universe actually looks like one I would want to explore in a game too.
I'm gonna agree with you there. Looks good and the city seems to have quite a backstory. This is a new engine btw. Not Unreal 3.
Its Unreal Engine 3.9
Unreal Engine 3.999998.
i KNOW! it looks pretty sick imo
Too, Epic For My EYES!!!!!!
This better be a game for next gen.
nah it's too generic leave it at being just a tech demo
it looks good. still, depends on the content but then again that's up to the developers, not epic.
So this is 100% real time footage?
I'd like to know this too.
Real-time, physics engine footage. No CG. This is a scripted event within the Unreal 3 engine itself.
This is NOT unreal engine 3 pal. This is their new engine/tech. (which will most likely be dubbed Unreal Engine 4 in the near future.)
Mark Rein called it "Unreal 3.975." Don't split hairs. =P
"So this is 100% real time footage?" Yes. On what's essentially a supercomputer, though.
Hope they turn this into a game.
With previous Epic Games Tech Demo's they have utilised the world of an upcoming game. So for example here: http://www.youtube.com/watc... We have Gears of War 2 used soon after its announcement. And here: http://www.youtube.com/watc... Is Gears of War 3 used within the Tech Demo prior to its announcement. I too as a huge fan of Epic and an obsessive of the Gears of War franchise hope that this tech demo progress' in to a full game...
It won't. Tech demos aren't meant to really use the hardware effectively, but just push the tech as much as possible to show off the new tech. We'll never see visual fidelity like this in actual games. That's how tech-demos are suppose to work.
Never? Aren't you exaggerating a little bit there? I agree that actual games using this engine won't look quite as good, but they will certainly be in the ballpark.
. Looks like the new IP Epic is going to announce at E3 this year with...the new Unreal engine. E3 is going to be EPIC this year. I hope they announce it for the 360 exclusively. Sony already has enough games...RIGHT???
If you think that game will run on the current consoles you are retarded.
Ah, Unreal 3 was pretty mind-blowing at the beginning of this-gen. Good to see that Epic still has the talent. ;)
That looked amazing.
If that took 3 GTX 580's to power that, then these kind of visuals probably won't be mainstream for at least another 2 or 3 years once duel (possibly more) core GPU's become the norm in PC GPU cards. By then I dare say single core units will be powerful enough. 2 or 3 years is roughly what the big companies project that their next gen systems will arrive in anyway, so that estimation isn't far wrong. The thing is, though, is that is this level of detail really needed in a game? I mean, thinking purely from a gameplay perspective, you tend to not get in that close to see it most of the time, and the only time you do, is during cut scenes. I think CGI just went out the window.
From what I've read, Epic stated that they could probably optimise it to run smoothly on one 580. Could be PR bs, but you never know.
Imagine a Deus Ex game using that engine!
But I can't say the same for the animations. A bit too clunky especially for the graphics of this pedigree. -End statement
I'm with Shinuz. Deus Ex with that engine ftw!
Required three GTX 580's to run graphics like that? I'm sure all 5 people in the world with a setup like that are thrilled. This won't be practical for several years.
Realistically, it's not intended to be practical for several years. You'll remember that Sony doesn't plan for a PS4 until about 2015. Hardware capabilities on all platforms will have advanced enough to make it feasible for people who don't have trust funds.
Pretty epic, I am really excited for it
The new engine looks great, can't wait to see some more though, this early stuff is always shaky.
Wow! Even if it takes a few years to see in in mainstream, it will be worth the wait!
Looking at the screenshots, some people dared believe Killzone 3 was better. Yes, it happened, only on N4G.
