Eye candy: Epic’s Infiltrator Unreal Engine 4 demo

Epic Games has posted Infiltrator, its latest real-time demo of Unreal Engine 4, shown at GDC last week.

According to Epic, the demo shows “Unreal Engine 4’s latest tools and high-end rendering features, such as physically based materials and lighting, full scene HDR reflections [and] advanced GPU particle simulation”.

For us, the particles looked fine, but the real highlight was the lighting – although as one commentator noted, if Infiltrator teaches us anything, it’s that in the future there will be no such thing as a clean camera lens.

Also available on PlayStation 4
As a bonus, Epic also showed off its original UE4 Elemental demo, first screened at GDC 2012, running on a PS4 dev kit. You can see it below, with the original PC version underneath.
