Epic Takes Us Inside Unreal Engine 4

Epic Games has done a fine job pitching its new game engine, Unreal Engine 4, most notably with the real-time demo it released in March, Infiltrator (that pretty sci-fi spectacle above).

How did they do it? That’s what Epic has been talking about ever since, releasing videos with devs who detail the tools in Unreal 4 that made Infiltrator possible. Last month, the devs shared Inside Unreal – Visual Effects Part 1, and today they’re back with Part 2. And I personally love getting an inside look at the engine and all its bells and whistles, even if I need to look up a few of the terms used:

Epic first unveiled Unreal Engine 4 in early 2012, and we can expect the first games (Daylight, Fortnight) created with the engine in 2014. It’s also worth noting Square Enix has licensed Unreal 4 for all of its next-gen titles.

Good for them. The Unreal 3 engine was getting really old. It’s been so overused and hit its limits long ago. So it’s about time.

Hopefully this also means we get another Unreal Tournament game. 2007 was a long time ago.
