Ex-DICE artist builds photo realistic environments in Unreal Engine 4

Unreal Engine 4 is capable of photo realistic graphics, with this video teasing the future of gaming

In the current slate of games, graphics are good - but nowhere near photo realistic. The best graphics around are found in the latest games like The Division and Rise of the Tomb Raider, but they're multi-platform games built for consoles - with PCs as an afterthought.



What if we had games use the true power of PC, requiring more than one GPU to power photo-realistic gaming? Well, a former DICE 3D artist has teased some of the best environments we've ever seen - powered by Unreal Engine 4. The video is above, and shows environments running in real-time, on UE4, and it looks absolutely insane.





Here are some screenshots that will blow your mind.
