I can't even tell what graphics are impressive anymore. After Crysis, I don't think I've noticed anything that blows me away. I wonder what its going to take

CryEngine is hard to beat, but no one wants to license it for some reason. Maybe now with UE4 we'll be wowed again...in a couple of years.

An excellent arguement for diminishing returns on GPU processing power.

Im not impressed either, they better top out Samaritan tech demo, this ice demon or what ever it is looks on average, where is that real hair and cloth U4E devs??


Particles and dynamic lightning looks nice, but that's about it.

For everyone saying they're not impressed...

Think of what games will look like in a year or two when they're made using UE4. No more fake lighting, that'll disappear. Heavy use of amazing looking effects, especially particles, will be available in all games using this new engine.

In other words, the majority of games will look amazing, as most use Unreal engine to make their games.

What I look forward to more than a new game engine, is the next generation of consoles. Because until then we're going to be held back by this present generation.

I'm really excited, as even though the rumored specs for the next-gen consoles couldn't hold a match to a top-end PC... what developers are able to accomplish with that hardware... that's what I'm looking forward to. Case in point- look at what they're already pulling off with what is essentially a 7800GT and X1800XT. Rather great visuals for such dated hardware.

Now, imagine what they'll be able to accomplish with the rumored specs of these next gen consoles. Only then will we start seeing some really impressive improvements to games. Improvements to not just the "graphics", but physics, AI, etc. All of it... that is what I'm excited about.

I could see a lot of awesome coming from UE4. But that's just a part of the bigger picture, imo.

Since I will never figure out how the hell to post a YouTube video on here...



As I said before...much more impressive in motion.

just use youtube tags, and put them around whatever comes after the v= in the url.
EDIT: that url was very funky.

I'm not impressed. This would look good as a launch game for next-gen consoles, where devs don't know the system very well. But a techdemo should show you, how the games could look like further down the line.

Some of the effects are nice, but the textures are still sh*tty as ever.

Those particle effects and objects breaking dynamically are what nvidia is currently pimping with the Kepler cards. It leads me to assume that the next PS and Xbox will have Kepler level GPU processing.

One thing I liked about the demo was that they didn't blur the background like crazy. all the mountains/etc were clear and crisp off in the distance.

For people who aren't impressed...what the hell are you expecting? Movie like CGI? That's still a good 10 years off.

At least new games built on this engine will actually look like their cinematic trailers for once...on PC.
