Unreal stuff

Is this the future of gaming? Maybe. A cameraman has filmed Epic’s unveiling of the Unreal Engine 3, which they consider to be the ‘next-gen’ of video game graphics. It does look glorious too, even if the demo is really unimaginative.

The engine made its debut at the GDC conference last week, shows a dystopian fascist future city, in which lots of people get beaten up and killed, and in which a strong-jawed, probably jaded and cynical, hero beats up the baddies in spectacular fashion. The real news however, is just how crisp everything looks, and the way the animation is genuinely starting to resemble live action.

‘Thanks to NVIDIA's excellent cross-platform physics technologies and DX11 expertise, we have enhanced Unreal Engine 3 to bring unprecedented new levels of realism and demonstrate what the next generation of gaming will be,’ blurbed Mark Rein, VP of Epic Games. Take a look and decide for yourself.
