Unreal Engine Trailer

There's a new trailer showing off the future of the Unreal Engine 3 on Kotaku. The clip includes a number of DirectX 11 features and more updated graphical goodness. There's also an article on Gizmodo where Epic's Tim Sweeney and Mark Rein discuss the engine's future and their mobile aspirations.

As with most tech demos what was show there is in no way conducive to actual gameplay but rather showing what the engine is capable of at it's most extreme.

The hair and head look great but that is only because there is nothing else but a bitmap background to take up texture memory or polygon count so they were able to 'spend' millions of them just making a cool head. The engine could never put that kind of detail in an actual game because there would be much more strict limits on the number of polys in the scene and the limits of texture memory.

The apex clothing looks pretty sweet but framerates were pretty low and it was only a simple area with one guy in it probably on a massively powerful computer.

The scenes look quite nice but again they can put an extreme amount of quality into a very small pace because they aren't limited as you normally would in an actual game.

So really these tech demos look very cool but they are in no way representative of an actual game.

That and I am 'sooo' sick of UEd.
