Curtain will lift on new technology in June

Epic Games will unveil its next generation Unreal Engine at the biggest event in the industry calendar.

Games studio developers are being invited to watch a demonstration of the new engine technologies at E3, Epic Games has confirmed to Develop.

Earlier today the first images of Unreal Engine 4 were published online.

The new technology, masterminded by Epic founder Tim Sweeney, has been in development for several years. Details of the tech remain unknown, for now, though UE4 will very likely support next generation consoles such as PlayStation 4 and the successor to the Xbox 360.

Epic recently revealed to Develop that it would support mobile games studios much sooner with Unreal Engine 4 than it had with the tech’s predecessor.

The E3 expo takes place in Los Angeles from June 5th to 7th.
