Epic’s released a direct-feed video of the Unreal Engine 3 demo it showed at GDC last week. The clip, which showed the company’s outlook on next-gen, was put online in off-screen form on Friday. But now you’ve got the whole banana. Everyone wins. Watch the video below, via IGN. Read Nathan’s impressions from the demo here.

    so u want to tell me this is a script gameplay with a new engin thay are working on for next genrtion?

    its kinda wierd, epic dosnt make game for the pc so why all this effort?
    even fanboys know that there is no way in hell sony or Micorsfr will make a console that will be able to run this it will cost to much even in the future.

    Epic began their journey on PC games.
    Unreal tournament series had always been on pc

    no this is not script, it might be real time in-footage or fmv.
    Though all that is done on updated UE3 which is possible for next gen consoles that doesn’t need £10000 pc high end system.

    They should add LA Noire’s facial animation tech and the game would be set for life. Seriously, with those human faces and these graphical features, the games can look better than Hollywood movies.

    LA Noire’s face tech creeps me out tbh. A lot of people say Mass Effect 2 is uncanney valley, but it’s not, LA Noire however is all sorts of odd.

    Yeah, the faces in L.A. Noire are really strange. It’s like a fmv of the real actor’s face is playing directly on the polygons of the 3d model.

    To date the best real time faces I saw are in Enslaved.

    You can rather easily run the last year’s demo on modern PC, so this new DirectX 11 demo might not be *that* heavy. One thing I like about UE3 is the fact that it really is a light engine, although that also means it prefers static objects more than, say CryEngine. I’m still yet to try this new UDK version, but you can download it for free if you want to try out these new visual features…
