The first screenshots from Epic Games' latest Unreal Engine 4 tech demo "Helmet" have popped up on the internet in all their gloriousness. Capturing the fine detail that would go into the creation of a futuristic soldier and or techno superstar's helmet, these shots don't tell much of a story, but considering how amazing they look that's probably okay. Hopefully this means we're getting closer to a full recording of the tech demo, but I wouldn't hold my breath.
Unreal Engine 4's "Elemental" demo from 2012 blew everyone's socks off, who knows what Epic Games have come up with in the interim. After Cyberpunk 2077's trailer earlier this year, I'm fully willing to admit we are spoiled beyond all reason. I'm sure Helmet will be better than we can even imagine. Take that, CryEngine 3.
Epic Games' first Unreal Engine 4 project, Fortnight, has been suspiciously absent from the limelight for some time now. News on the supposedly PC exclusive title will hopefully pop up in the next few months -- at least, I hope. At this rate Zombie Studios' Daylight might be the first Unreal Engine 4 game released, or perhaps a title that has yet to be announced will rush to the finish. Just don't expect any of them to run on next-gen consoles.
More screenshots and/or footage soon, please! Thanks, Epic. And be sure to click the images to view them in full, glorious resolution.
