The Future, Through the Eyes of EPIC


So here it is, the future according to EPIC.  This is a picture generated by the guys behind Gears of War and Unreal tournament, showing their guess at what next-gen should look like. The screenshot above show's off some of the newest improvements EPIC has made to the Unreal Engine, and it's looking pretty damn good.



Unreal has been behind a lot of very pretty games for this generation of consoles, and I don't think many will argue with that. The problem I've had however, has been with the netcoding for online multiplayer in many of these games.  Bullet lag has been a rampant problem in a bunch of Unreal-powered games.  Gears of War, Rainbow Six Vegas 2, and Turok, just to name a few.  Let's hope that they take their time and get it right with the next Unreal.

What are your opinions on EPIC's view of the next generation?  Are you impressed?  Personally, I'm happy with the graphical improvements, and I'm hoping the next generation of games will be about improved AI, and added depth throughout games.

  1. Picture looks great if you ask me. I wonder how long we'll have to wait till the next gen arrives though.

  4. That is ridiculous detail. I can only imagine an entire cutscene like that. EPIC is always on top of their game.
