That sure is a lot of gobblydegook to say that Unreal 4 is gonna have some major support this gen.
I really hope OR works out.
I really hope OR becomes a sucess
By the end of next gen, will we hate Unreal engine 4 as much as Unreal 3?
That awesome news and a big deal for Epic! I'm looking forward to seeing how great the Unreal Engine 4 turns out.
That's quite the support. I especially am looking forward to seeing the implementation of the Oculus Rift, that should be interesting.
It'll be interesting to see how it looks on the Oculus Rift
YES! More games need Natural Motion engine
Sweet! Euphoria is the mot realistic behavior software I have ever seen!!
Very nice selection of partnerships.
Can we just pause for a moment and notice how far games have come graphics wise.
Wait, so these all come with ue4?
