Extended real-time tech demo shows off dynamic lighting, subsurface scattering and GPU-powered particle effects
Epic's latset development platform Unreal Engine 4 has been confirmed for the PlayStation 4.
The tech and development outfit showed off a stunning new version of its Elemental tech demo, previously debuted at last year's E3 exhibition.
The video displayed a number of the engine's key features for developers such as dynamic lighting and shadowing, real-time reflections, subsurface scattering and GPU-powered particle effects.
The demo was also run completely in real-time.
“We are thrilled to build onto our long-established success with PlayStation,” said Epic Games CEO Tim Sweeney.
“Unreal Engine 4 is expertly designed for the next generation of game development and the outstanding power of PlayStation 4. Today’s demonstration offers a preview of what developers can accomplish using our tools to create games for PlayStation 4.”
