Day160 UnrealEngine3

Unreal Engine 3
Yes, CryEngine2 may be going to amazing places - but lets not forget the amazing things that the mighty Unreal Engine can do as well. Even though little RoboBlitz doesnt show off the capabilities behind - these vids do! First off a couple of really short ones then some more extensive showing off.

Fluid effect first up - blimey:


And some physics including bending/deforming metal:


Here is a longer demo of some of the tech - the quality isnt so good - but at least we can see some of the great things the engine sports.

Note that the gameplay trailers for this look like junk to me - the idea of just charging around fragging doesnt appeal to me. I hope this game isnt too tainted by that logic, HalfLife2 took the FPS to new places of cinematic emersion that were inspired. Lets hope Unreal keeps things going forward somewhat [crosses fingers]

A little TombRaiding to finish up.
