The folks at Kotaku spotted a video of Epic's Unreal Engine 4 demo from GDC on YouTube. The video is really a tech demo of Epic's UE4 technology and not any upcoming IP, but in usual Epic fashion it looks downright impressive. Even more exciting is the fact that the demo was run entirely on a single GeForce GTX 680. With the next generation of game consoles targeting GPU performance under that of a 680, the performance target makes sense.

Fortnite will be Epic's first game to use Unreal Engine 4. We can also expect UE4 to make its way onto mobile devices as well thanks to the excellent UDK for Android and iOS.

    PC gamers sure are paranoid right now that the upcoming consoles will be comparable lol.

    Seems every PC game article of a future title has some mentioning of the PS4.

    We'll see. But I have a feeling developers are cheering right now knowing they will not have to build 2 different teams ( perhaps even 3 ) because a console has architecture completely different then that of the main PC build.

    And just to note something. That " demo " actually looks worse then the live gameplay of Killzone on PS4. Just sayin.

    I saw this playing in real time in NVIDIAs demo lab. They were running off of like 1 680 I believe (although they did have a quad Titan rig sitting on the side ;D). It's an amazing demo, especially when you see it in wireframe view and see how densely packed the screen is of polygons. Reply
