[CVG]Epic's next-gen 'Samaritan' tech demo could become full game

Earlier this month, at GDC, Epic showed off its vision of how games will look in the future using its 'next-gen' Unreal Engine.

Following the impressive video the question on everyone's lips was whether or not we would ever get to play the game used in what's dubbed the 'Samaritan' tech demo.

Epic's Mark Reign has told 1UP that although it isn't currently in development it is a possibility.

"I'm not going to deny that that's possible, but at the same time, if we hadn't had built that technology demo, then we wouldn't have been able to build Gears of War" said Rein.

I will tell you what if games looked like that I would stop moaning & groaning. I pray that games look like that in the future & I live long enough to see it. So if this does happen to hit PC as a game us ATI users will be out because ATI isnt supporting physx

The problem that I see is that if this comes to PC how many PCers wont be able to afford the GPU that will run this? Would that drive more users to consoles where the graphics are already implimented to run this game at a cheaper cost?

many questions

It's a prerendered cut scene. You may as well take any any modern CGI film and say I can't wait until games look like that.

who went out of their way to rate every thread here 1 star?

but on topic, it could be an interesting game aslong as it had a decent plot to back it up.

I thought the entire thing was real-time? Like that's what the new engine looks like. Which wouldn't surprise me, they're really pulling off some fantastic stuff with Dx11 in Unreal Engine.

This demo is amazing in itself, if this uses the same amount of CryEngine 3.... then CryEngine 3 has officially lost this battle, at the very least, has some serious competition.
