Unreal Engine 4 Elemental Demo Released By Epic Games
Epic's Unreal Engine 4 is supposed to ship sometime in 2013 and we are getting a preview of what to expect today with the release of a real-time demo, called Elemental. The short demo depicts an ancient knight creaking to supernatural life while a decrepit castle comes apart around him, letting in floods of light and gusts of snow. It's a concise showcase of the underlying technology, which features sophisticated dynamic illumination, light-reactive materials, rich particle effects, per-pixel lens flares, and other visual processes that don't sound quite as sexy as they appear.
The most world-class game engine to date, Unreal Engine 4 gives you the power to do more than ever before. Unreal Engine 4's architecture offers fully dynamic lighting features, cutting down on development time and ensuring less iteration on creative ideas. Artists and designers can bring their creative visions to life directly in game without programmer assistance via the new Unreal Kismet. This offers programmers the freedom to focus on core gameplay features and sophisticated systems. With significant new visual features, Unreal Engine 4 enables you to achieve high-end visuals, while remaining both scalable and accessible to make games for low-spec PCs.
