New Unreal Engine 3 images

New Unreal Engine 3 images

After the annoucement last week at GDC, it was time we got a bit more images of the Unreal Engine 3. These 12 screens are certainly a very good reason to approve Microsoft in choosing this engine for some of his next generation titles. They also show another engine called SpeedTree, allowing the developers to generate quite realistic looking and unique trees. Imagine playing this on your tv in a few months :)

:/ quake 4 3D engine must be better than Unreal but i think the Unreal 3D engine will win so easly cuz they working so hard on it

Quake 4 engine = Doom 3 engine, so it's almost exclusively for rather small areas. UE3 can handle both highly details small areas, and less detailed very wide (kilometeres wide) areas. Think of it as a very advanced far cry engine if you want.

Imagine TFLO being resurrected on XB and the environment (not the people) having this engine. It would be awesome.

I would so love to see a resurrected TFLO. My trusty avatar comes from TFLO :)

Quick Fact: SpeedTree is being used in Oblivion. And the trees even look better in oblivion than in thoes pictures?

Damn nice.. =)

Yea. It was a very, very sad time when the news of it being cancelled broke out. Oh well.

The game was far from being done when they decided to cancel it, especially on the server side. It would have been ready much too late in the Xbox life time, especially in Japan where Xbox is basically a dead weight.

About the game


What's up?
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX @KORNdog: Still very different. More like Diablo but the "game feel" is not as polished. Systems are more well designed, but I have to give it to Diablo when it comes to fit and finish. (1 Hour ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @GriftGFX: like divinity? Better or worse? Might be one i dust off the xbox for. (1 Hour ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX The economy is unique and will probably seem strange to new players.. but every system is cleverly tied together in PoE. (2 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX And yes.. the passive skill tree is pretty insane. It has a healthy mix of rigid decision making in its passive tree and flexibility in the active skill system. (2 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Path of Exile is an endlessly playable action RPG and Pillars of Eternity is a turn-based single player game w/ a party system. (2 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX No they are not.. they are both RPGs and they both have isometric cameras but that's where the similarities end. (2 Hours ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz I always confuse the PoE abbreviation with Pillars of Eternity. Are they even the same type of game? (2 Hours ago)
