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?

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

  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I wonder if they intend to do more limited time modes like Fortnite. There's basically no way for them to keep up with that. (2 Hours ago)

    GriftGFX I thought this 8 player squad mode in PUBG was going to give me a reason to return... but the max party size is still 4? That's just silly. (2 Hours ago)
