Epic to show 'next-gen' Unreal Engine 4 at GDC

"Next-generation game technology" set for behind closed doors preview

Epic is set to show off its "next-generation game technology," Unreal Engine 4 at GDC next week, it's announced.


The Gears of War dev will preview the tech to "select licensees, partners and prospective customers" during the exhibition, although the bad news is that non-disclosure agreements will be required - so we probably won't hear much.

It's previously been said that the next-gen Unreal Engine will require ten times the power of Xbox 360 to run.

Epic first showed off next-gen Unreal Engine tech running on UE3 at GDC in March last year.

The impressive Samaritan demo video quickly became the talk of the town, with speculation that it could be fleshed out into a full game.

Epic said the demo "represents Epic's proposal for what the next generation of gaming will look like and sets a new bar for what can be accomplished with Epic's Unreal Engine 3 technology".
