A little over a month ago, Epic Games made Unreal Engine 4 available to anyone interested in tinkering with it—provided they were willing to cough up $19 a month (and 5% of any eventual proceeds). Some folks were quick to seize the opportunity, and one of them has posted a video that's making the rounds today. The video shows BioShock assets given a new lease on life by the next-gen engine:
This seems to be an experiment rather than a full-fledged conversion project. The video description reads, "I've been itching to play with UE4... So I decided to gather up some of the original Bioshock assets and see how they'd look in a next gen engine!" It doesn't look half bad, though—even if some of the models and textures could use some sprucing up.
Another recent video shows a concept from Deus Ex: Human Revolution reimagined in Unreal Engine 4:
This one looks to be a showcase for Quixel Suite, a set of art tools for developers. The assets fit the next-gen nature of the rendering mojo here, and it shows.
If you're looking for an Unreal Engine 4 fix in playable form, one of the first games based on that engine, Daylight, came out yesterday. It's a survival horror title from an indie studio, and it's available on Steam for $14.99. (Thanks to TR regular SH SOTN for the links.)
