Epic must be really enjoying all the publicity as of late? Right now all the big focus on the upcoming games for the PlayStation 4 seem to center around (one way or another) Epic's Unreal Engine 4. Both Sony and Epic have gone way out of the way to ensure that developers have complete access to all the tools necessary to create the best games possible.
Coming out of GDC 2013 Epic Games has let loose a series of new technical demos showcasing the power of the Unreal Engine 4. While this tech demo is a year old for the PC Master Race, who got to see the power of the UE4 on a single GTX 680, this PS4 demo obviously shows as much potential for the console as it does the age-old video card that the console will be sporting.
Tecmo Koei and Epic Games have signed on together in a deal that sees Koei licensing Epic's Unreal Engine 3 for Spark Unlimited and comcept's upcoming Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z, which will be helmed and designed by the legendary Keiji Inafune. The first images of the project have also surfaced, giving gamers a brief glimpse of what's to come.

Gears of War: Judgment launches today, once again allowing players to step into the blood and grit-caked boots of of COG soldiers on a quest to curb-stomp invading Locusts straight to hell. In case you weren't already sold on the game, however, a multiplayer demo is being offered on Xbox Live starting today.
One of the more praised games of 2012 was the mid-summer release of a little something-something called Spec Ops: The Line. While the game wasn't up to my tastes, there were a lot of gamers who loved the dark and provocative storyline that Yager brought to the table. Well, they're hoping to do the same thing with their next-gen release and it's currently running on Epic Games' Unreal Engine 4.
The multiplayer for Gears of War: Judgment will feature a powerful character named the Epic Reaper. Lucky players will be able to take on the role of this high-powered Locust.

New screenshots from an Unreal Engine 4 tech demo have “leaked” just hours before Sony's big announcement for the PlayStation 4.
