It looks like the next gen in graphics is upon us. With new systems probably gonna be announced this year, it’s not surprising that developer tool makers are showing demos of their latest game engines. The two major players in the graphics engine game are the Crytek engine and the Unreal engine. Of course they have their pros and cons. There are some features that are available on both and some that are not.What does this mean for the gamers? Well, you’ll get improved graphics (think of prerendered graphics), better ai, and better special effects like lighting, particles, destruction.
Do think it’s a step above what we already see in console or pc gaming? We’ll find out soon enough as game developers are sure to take advantage of the new developement tools.
