The lights are on
While on our cover trip for Gears of War: Judgment we sat down with design director Cliff Bleszinski to talk about the power of Unreal Engine 4. Built for the next generation of consoles and high-end PCs, Epic Games is hoping that its next engine will be as widespread in the game development scene as Unreal Engine 3. So what does Unreal Engine 4 mean for developers and gamers alike? Watch the video below to see behind-the-scenes footage of the new engine, hear Cliff explain what it is capable of, and even drop a hint or two about the direction he would like to steer the engine with his future projects.

"You can't just continue to exponentially scale your teams...They key is to make games smarter, not harder."
Amen, Cliffy B. Amen.
So I take it that everyone is completely forgetting about the Kojima Fox engine, then?
So far with the information that is being given it seems that next gen will definitely LOOK amazing however I think in order to achieve continued success next gen has to PLAY amazing. I think new IP's, multiple story line endings, seamless transition between multiplayer and single player, and longer gameplay coupled with better visuals will give gamers a successful next gen experience. Splashy graphics, old tired gameplay, high prices, money grabbing DLC and uninventive multiplayer will not work no matter how good it LOOKS.
