Epic Game‘s Unreal Engine is a big deal because it is one of the most popular engines used in gaming today. So when Epic unveiled a demo of Unreal Engine 4 at GDC to a select few, a lot of us where chomping at the bit to get our hands on that footage.
Today is that day, people.
I can safely say that Unreal Engine 4 was worth the wait.
The folks over at GameTrailers.com have the official video of what was shown behind closed doors at GDC. Not only did they release the video of the pure demo, but they also debuted a really cool walkthrough of the new engine’s features hosted by Alan Willard, a Sr Technical Artist at Epic Games. You can check out that walkthrough in the embed below.
No games shown at E3 were running on Unreal 4, and there aren’t even any games announced to be using the tech in the future. A release date is unknown, but it would seem likely that we will see Epic’s new engine running games made for the next generation of consoles.
Do these glimpses of Unreal Engine 4 get you excited for the future?
