Epic’s announced it will show off the “next-gen” of Unreal Engine 3 technology at GDC next week.

The new tools for the engine will be shown off to “select licensees, partners, prospective customers and the media behind closed doors” in San Francisco in a week’s time.

“This technology demonstration is nothing short of breathtaking. It reminds me of when we first showed Unreal Engine 3 to the world and people were amazed,” said Epic president Mike Capps. “It’s like seeing the Unreal Engine all over again for the very first time.”

Epic is set to be out in force at the Moscone Center, with talks coming from Chair co-founders Geremy and Donald Mustard, Gears of War producer Rod Fergusson and design boss Cliff Bleszinski.

GDC kicks off next Tuesday.
