Unreal Engine 3 is getting old. After six years of supporting games like the entire Mass Effect and Gears of War franchises, the engine is beginning to show its age a little bit. Soon, however, we’ll have a glorious new Unreal Engine to drool over. Epic’s new iteration promises to deliver a definitely next-gen-feeling experience, including features like particle physics that can handle millions of particles on screen at the same time. In short, it’s going to be very pretty.
The actual demo won’t be shown to the gamer community at large until this coming E3, but in the meantime, Wired got its hands on some stills from the fabled Unreal Engine 4 demo reel. Sure, it’s nothing compaired to actual footage, but it sure beats nothing. Take a look, and you’ll see what I mean. As if you needed another reason to be stoked for E3.
this is some kind of spaceship or something.
