Epic unveils Unreal Engine 4 and New Video for the New Batman DLC

He does not look happy.

Epic Games has finally shown screenshots of their latest Unreal Engine 4. I must say that the engine looks absolutely stunning. I have high hopes with what developers will be able to do with this engine for future consoles. I did grab some screenshots from the Tech Demo they showed and will post them.

The lighting effects and flames look so great.
During a Wired Magazine article Epic staff talked about the tech and said how people were going to be blown away by what they see. "There is a huge responsibility on the shoulders of our engine team and our studio to drag this industry into the next generation," said Gears design director Cliff Bleszinski  "It is up to Epic, and Tim Sweeney in particular, to motivate Microsoft and Sony not to phone in what these next consoles are going to be. It needs to be a quantum leap. They need to damn near render Avatar in real time, because I want it and gamers want it - even if they don't know they want it."

The statues are amazing.
Those are some big words coming from Epic's high profile person. Although as the story continued.
Sweeney added: "We're much more in sync with the console makers than any other developer is. That means we can give detailed recommendations with a complete understanding of what is going to be commercially possible."

Apparently Epic knows what the specs of the PS4 and next Xbox are and are  "actively lobbying" for them to be more powerful.

Epic will reveal Unreal Engine 4 to the public at the E3 trade show in June.

This Demon looks pretty bad ass!

Nice place to just relax and watch the snow fall.
Rendering for the citadel.
In complete citadel glory.

Let me know in the comments what you think of the images and will this push both Microsoft and Sony for graphically powerful systems?

Now on some DLC front news I am posting a video for the latest DLC for Batman:Arkham City. I hope you enjoy it and make sure you pick it up when it releases on the 29th of May.
