It’s no secret that Ninja Theory is hiring for its new Unreal Engine 4 game, but we may have caught a glimpse of it in this leaked tech demo for something called The Beggar’s Opera.

Stills from the clip have appeared before but this is our first look at the video in its entirety, after if appeared in an artist’s portfolio.

According to a source speaking with DualShockers, the footage was made as an internal Unreal Engine 4 tech demo using Maya, Photoshop, Zbrush, and UV Layout.

I’ve taken a few grabs in case the clip gets pulled. They’re below.

    Colour me intrigued, wonder if we’ll see something from Ninja Theory at E3.

    I hope so, despite their faults I’ve enjoyed each and every one of their games.

    Cool character and world design. I wonder if it will be made into a full game one day.

    Do wonder about that as well. If there’s one thing NT can do, it’s design.
