E3 2012: Get Ready To Pick Your Jaw Up Off The Floor As Epic Unveils Their Next Gen Game Engine

Unreal

If you’re a gamer you’ve almost definitely played a game that uses Epic’s Unreal Engine. It’s without a doubt the most popular engine of this generation as it’s used by everything from Gears of War to Batman: Arkham City, Mass Effect and Mortal Kombat, as well as the upcoming BioShock Infinite, Borderlands 2, Aliens: Colonial Marines, DmC: Devil May Cry, and a plethora of other highly anticipated games. It’s popular, and if this generation is anything to go by, there’s a distinct possibility the newly unveiled Unreal Engine 4 will be powering many of the titles of the next generation of video games. In the gameplay video after the break you’ll see a stunning video that will make you itch for the next generation of consoles.

What makes this all the more impressive is this isn’t pre-rendered footage, it’s all in real-time. This isn’t an elaborate cinematic, it’s a very real look at what the next generation of games could look like. It’s also supposedly running on a personal computer with a single graphics card so poor people such as myself don’t have to worry about selling vital organs to be able to afford a computer capable of running these games. What do you think? Is this everything you hoped for from the next generation of games?
