Can't wait to start messing with this engine when Epic finally decides to give public access to it. This is probably the engine that will power most next gen games, just like UE3 did this gen.

the fact that their efforts were placed into something that isn't a game, or even related to in game consoles graphics is majorly off putting. My PC should be able to run this like a champ, but that's about it.

Tech demos can be such a drab, waste of time and talent. Unreal made 3 tech demos and all of them could have been fresh titles. seriously what gives?

Not really a waste of time or talent at all. In fact, it's a good use of talent, as it's that talent being put to use to get creative with the engine so that the knowledge can be passed on down to a game development environment. These are more for thought out solutions. The use of emitters, as being discussed here, illustrates that. It's a clever use of those emitters producing effects that would normally take up a lot of time trying to solve in other ways. You'd normally only ever see these kind of techniques used in CGI production, but here they are being used for a game engine. Very cool.

Any AAA games being developed?
Epic Games's founder Tim Sweeney declared that there are many studios using Unreal Engine 4 to develop numerous triple-A games and also some smaller titles and that we should start seeing the results in late 2014.

The known AAA games being developed using UE4 are:

Daylight, Fable Legends, Fortnite, Space Hulk: Deathwing (WarHammer 40.000 universe).

Also, Ninja Theory's new IP, Square Enix's Next Generation Titles and YAGER Development's next generation AAA project.

Also, below is the link of the official Unreal Engine 4's Tool & Feature Highlights, which has a lot of information on what the UE4 has and can do:

Hopefully they'll make UT4 with that engine.. Next gen DM game..

They make a good use of technology but my only problem is that very few companies utilize the engine as their targets depict.

Epic took the time to create such artistic designs for a tech demo and yet it's some different game that makes the cut, I just don't like when things like that happen.

I would have liked it if i could play the Infiltrator as a game.

Looks nice as a tech demo, but it is just that.

About the game


What's up?
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts People are gonna call me crazy, but I got far more enjoyment out of Watch Dogs 2's shooting mechanics than Ghost Recon: Wildlands'. Need to test other weapons, but only unlocked 2 of them. (1 Hour ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I'm going to play it in about an hour after I finish up a few more rounds of Rainbow Six. It's a Tom Clancy night I guess. (2 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX That's weird.. aphex said the gun mechanics were pretty good. (2 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts Feels so much similar to Watch Dogs 2's mechanics, minus the best parts. (2 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts I understand what the developers are trying to achieve, but the execution leaves much to be desired. And make no mistake, this is a collect-a-ton open world first and foremost than a TPS game. (2 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts are too predictable. Didn't have any challenge to it. But it's not all bad, the chatter between the team members is really nice and the customization is great. Graphics are very good, minus pop-ins. (2 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts Can't put my finger on why exactly, but if I had to guess is because the shooting is so bad, and in a TPS game, that's basically it. The areas you explore are really good, design wise, but the enemies (2 Hours ago)
