Unreal Engine 4 is… Unreal

I remember back when I was in college, and I saw the first tech demo of the Unreal Engine 3. It blew me away. I thought to myself “this is the future of gaming.” Well, that was nearly 8 years ago. We’ve caught up with the future, and now we have the Unreal Engine 4 to take us even further.

The above video shows the Senior Technical Artist at Epic explaining what the engine is capable of as he walks through the scenes. He uses a lot of technical jargon that may be a bit difficult to follow, but it’s interesting none-the-less. If you don’t much care for the specifics of what the Unreal Engine 4 can do and just prefer something pretty to look at, watch the video after the break entitled “Elemental.” Or you can look at my picture at the top of the article. That’s also very pretty.
