Looks nice. Wondering what that demo would have looked like with day-light settings though.

Not yet, but I dearly hope it's not too far off. It's such a pain to know that this awesome piece of tech is ready for use, but simply not made available.

It looks very good. Better than everything I saw until now made with Unreal engine. And it seems to have everything. I'm not sure from the video if it has the type of raytrace-like dof and mblur from my cryengine tools, but it looks very cinematic and rendered-like.

If I remember correctly, unlike previous tech (where there is always current build each month) this one is NOT easily available to smaller studios and indies.

I think maybe the bigger studios wanted more exclusiveness, just like ID Software own engine. Where they (ID) released it for free after a few generation out.

I can't remember if what I remember is right, but I think at that time they do have a point. Remember the old days of bragging the awesomeness of your engine (instead of the gameplay) is hard to do when indies and internet team are releasing games using the same engine for cheap or free.

Can't find old article, but here it is:

http://www.develop-online.net/news/...t-indies-sooner

“Should we have done that from day one with UE3? Yeah, maybe,” he added.
“I’m not sure if we’re going to do it straight away with Unreal Engine 4"

For what it worth... too early to say.

edit:

in googling the articles, I found out that it already available for licensing by studios. there was in "indie" studio, but it mention flagship product or something, so i guess its a high powered indie.

It has been given to smaller companies already, like Phosphor Games Studios with their "Project Awakened" or Zombie Studios "Daylight". One can only hope.

Omg, that was incredible.
Much better than their first UE4 demo (which i found quite dissapointing).

Epic may have licensed itself too thinly for proper support with UE3 which caught the ire of some developers claiming preferential treatment/support for big studios - one resulting in a lawsuit.

I think the stakes are bigger this generation and Epic may want to back key titles across a range of devices. Quality over Quantity given the inroads more affordable game engines have made in recent years.

Epic said "2014" at the time UE4 was unveiled.

They haven't said anything about a UDK version of Unreal Engine 4, other than that it will come at some point. Nothing about any expected release time.

Someone asked Mark Rein yesterday via twitter if a UE4 UDK will be released at some time. His answer simply was: Stay tuned

Too bad that Epic didn't give us at least an ETA, but who knows, maybe in the weeks to come.

I expect they'll put it out as soon as possible, to their advantage to get as many people using the engine as possible so that they can again have the dominant game engine for the upcoming generation of games.
