A dev diary is long over due for this. sadly most of this could have been exhibited months ago. I'm more curious to know the skin and hair render pipeline for their characters. I know the hair is pretty old school but it looks solid. UE4 has had some interesting examples in the past.

these features though are not used enough in UE4 games. Brad's hair though in Dark Pictures -

not every day to you see games nail ethnic hair at such detail. I was pretty impressed back in the day with Sazh and josh from both FFXIII and RE5, but more so with Zeddemore from Ghost Busters (actor Ernie Hudson)

Dark Pictures sets a pretty high bar for UE4 projects.
