We reported last week that GT.TV was able to get a look at footage from the Unreal Engine 4 and also talk with Senior Technical Artist Alan Willard from Epic Games. NVIDIA was also present at the demonstration and was able to get some time to talk to Tim Sweeney, the founder of Epic Games. In addition to improving on the graphics provided by the Unreal Engine 3, Tim described the desire to "deliver a toolset with an unprecedented mixture of power, ease-of-use, and polish." The key to the new engine is Sparse Voxel Octree Global Illumination, a method developed at Epic. The screenshots and video taken by NVIDIA are very impressive and give some insight into the future of gaming.
