Unreal Engine 4 Graphics Demo Declares This is Next-Gen

by William Schwartz

As dubious a claim as ‘leaked’ is these days, this Unreal Engine 4 graphics demo was supposedly let loose earlier than scheduled. This tech demo, Infiltrator, was being shown to developers and reporters at the Game Developers Conference in San Francisco by the people at Epic Games.

We don’t know if this is a preview for a title in development or just a way for Epic to flex their next-gen engine, either way this trailer is all kinds of shiny. The Unreal Engine is the little proprietary muscle that fuels such massive AAA titles like Mass Effect and the Batman Arkham titles. Epic Games are also the people behind the Gears of War franchise. We know that PC gamers have had this level of eye candy for years, but at least consoles are heading in the right direction. Watch the trailer below and let us know what you think of the tech demo in action.
