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.
