Epic Games showed off a demo video called “Infiltrator” during the recently concluded Game Developers Conference and gave people a glimpse of what the future of gaming would look like. The short video runs on Epic’s new Unreal Engine 4 and looks pretty impressive. Several people who saw the demo even wondered if it was a preview of a real game that’s being developed by Epic. After all, the company is behind some of the world’s top games like Gears of War, Infinity Blade and the Mass Effect franchise.
However, fans of the Wii U who’re hoping that the new game engine will reach their beloved console will be disappointed to know that the Unreal Engine 4 won’t run on Nintendo’s newest console. According to Mark Rein, Epic’s vice president, Unreal Engine 4 is aimed at next-generation consoles and mentioned that the game engine’s previous incarnation, the Unreal Engine 3, is already behind the best games on Wii.
It makes sense that Epic has chosen to limit the number of games it’s developing. For one thing, the practice allows the company to pour its creativity and focus on making the games it’s involved in among the best. But the most important reason is that the company’s game engine licensees earn it more money than any of the games it develops. In short, the more game platforms Unreal Engines go on, the richer Epic becomes.
This here is for mature audiences only. Okay, perhaps on the grey area but still…
Sexy images from the female characters of The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim are attracting male attention as of late and we cannot blame them: seeing these voluptuous characters in their naked glory is just a sight for sore eyes and indeed, they come with the whole package every man look for in a virtual girl, so to speak.
Unreal, alongside Gionight became the talk of the town when the two modders released a mod pack that transforms the dull looking characters of Skyrim into these hot looking creatures as seen from below. Of course, our fine lads didn’t mention if they are also planning to release a nude version of this, but that’s something that will certainly induce a comma for the thousands of gents playing the game.
If you are one of those who wants to run Unreal’s mod, all you need to do is to extract some files over to your Skyrim installation’s data folder. The mod features some pretty impressive tweaks including an optimized file format, easy installation via Nexus Mod Manager and with some adult related Argonian without nipples, corrected bellybutton and stomach color and nipple replacement.
Is this mod true? Comparing the images to Skyrim’s Character Collection video, it’s still a bit hazy to tell whether or not it’s legit. But then again, who doesn’t want these perfectly tones creatures in their video game?
Capcom’s new action-adventure game Remember Me has caught the interest of gamers and console developers alike in the recently concluded Gamescon. The game was originally developed by Sony and was called Adrift. But with Capcom taking over the reins, it has been given a new name and a new lease on gaming life.
Gamers will be playing Nilin, Remember Me’s female protagonist. Nilin is a memory hunter with special abilities that allows her to change or steal people’s memories. However, she had her own memory stolen and breaks out from the Bastille to track down and hunt her enemies. A recently released trailer of the game showcased some of her attacks like the “Memory Remix” and “Logic Bomb.” The graphics were cutting edge and the gameplay seems engaging.
In an unexpected move, Capcom has announced Remember Me will be released by May 2012 on all platforms including PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. Most video game publishers think it’s a bad business move to release new games at the console cycle. But Mat Hart, Capcom’s senior producer, wants Remember Me to have a long and lucrative franchise. Releasing the game on current consoles ensures that it will be well established as a new IP before continuing the franchise on upcoming gaming consoles. It’s a ballsy move to be sure, but one that would benefit gamers, and Capcom, in the long run.
Gameloft, a Parisian gaming company, has recently teased the company’s first Unreal Engine game. If you must know Unreal engine actually began on PC and has produced some of the best video games in the world. Unfortunately, the company has been very unclear as to what the game is really all about.
It was on the company’s Facebook page where we were able to find a teaser image of the game. All we can see is a skeleton of a fallen warrior and the lower part of a character holding a huge bloody sword. Along with that, there was also a saying which says that the artwork is hiding a clue. We tried to find the clue ourselves but we seem to be at a loss. Others, on the other hand, believe that the game will most likely be God of War. A lot of fans have become excited with this new update.
To top it all off, the company has even encouraged its fans to vote for what the next clue will be. It will either be a YouTube trailer or another picture. Sources say that the game will probably run on Android but there has been no announcement regarding this. Hopefully, we will have some confirmation soon.
Finally, Epic Games has made the whole demo of Unreal Engine 4 public and it reveals a breathtaking real-time gaming spectacle filled with true-to-life lighting effects making every action come alive. Simultaneously and spontaneously designed for the most discerning players, Epic’s Unreal Engine 4 vows to curve the games that fans will see and play in the next generation of PCs and consoles with real picture perfect lighting.
Many players enjoy destruction-filled games. That’s why people have chosen Battlefield 3 over Modern Warfare 3. But the idea of using destruction as an organic and authentic integral game component has yet to be realized.
Unreal Engine 4 expands the idea of a game world similar to Battlefield 3 wherein buildings are torn down, covers are bombarded by gunfire, and enemies are killed by collapsing houses. However, in Epic’s new game, we can see the game’s main character walking through a crumbling stone-built corridor. The debris collapses in real time and accumulates around the floor. Every piece of collapsing materials remains where they fall, stack themselves up, and can be walked upon.
Unreal Engine 4 is designed to meet both hardcore gamers’ and newbie players’ fantasy. It delivers believable destruction, realistic behaving malleable materials, touch reacting particle effects, manipulative dense fogging features, and dynamic lighting. Moreover, it puts an end to plain and obvious HUD markers, radio chatters, and text-based instructions found in other game releases.
The Unreal Engine 4 Game is set to be released by the end of next year. By now, players should have their imagination leveled up as to wonder how the game will be delivered, whether it is through a lightning or a lava flow.
