Geoff Keighley of Gametrailers TV has confirmed that Epic Games' latest high-end software will be on showcase for the general public both at E3 and in a special presentation recorded from the offices of Epic Games, along with Cliff Bleszinksi and Tim Sweeny.
According to Game Static, Keighley openly answered questions in a popular thing on reddit called AMA (Ask Me Anything About), and it was inevitable that a few upstanding members of the gaming community would bug the gaming journalist about Epic's tightly kept next-gen engine.
The original question was..."Are we going to see a full reveal of Unreal Engine 4?", to which Keighley replied....
“Yes, we will be unveiling Unreal Engine 4 during E3 week on Spike. I went down to Epic and filmed with Cliff, Tim Sweeney and the whole crew. Full half-hour special on the engine and tech.”... "we are showing off the editor and a lot of the tech. Very in depth, glad to hear you are excited!”
That's actually pretty exciting news because as we know, the Unreal Engine is just as known for its high-end graphical and performance capabilities as it is the ability to accommodate ease-of-use with the Unreal Editor.
Speaking of which, the Unreal Engine 4, according to Epic's Mike Capps, is supposed to be even more indie-friendly than the already very indie-friendly Unreal Engine 3 (which is the current version supported by the Unreal Development Kit). So it'll be neat to see what sort of changes the editor has undergone to better suit the indies and the AAA studios.
We'll keep you posted on additional news regarding the UE4 once E3 rolls around. For more info on Epic and the Unreal Engine feel free to visit the Official Website.
