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.
