Photorealism Finally Achieved In Gaming With The Unreal 4 Engine

By : Sam Ridgway |



Graphics in video games have been gradually improving over the years and with each next-gen console release we climb another step on the ladder to finally playing in photo realistic worlds.

Well, there is still quite a long way to go yet, perfection doesn’t happen over night, but this new video showcases the Unreal Engine 4, and the photorealism in it is astounding.


We don’t get to see much in the video other than a swift walk around a lavish apartment, but I can’t help picturing myself running through it with an AK47 and smashing the place up. But that’s just my childish mentality.

With breathtaking settings like this now being created, surely at some point in the future we will all get to experience game worlds like this. Imagine the carnage.

Hurry up photorealism!
