    Today, Epic Games released a preview of what their next update, Unreal Engine 4.5, and it is definitely a doozy. With over 40 new features and improvements, the new Unreal Engine update is continuing it's advancement with rendering textures and models.

    This is...well, definitely interesting news to say the least. It's great to see what the Unreal Engine is really capable of. For more updates, you can check out the Unreal Engine blog in the source below

    I don't know, it's a little... eh?

    Well, it certainly looks unreal, I'll give them that.

    I swear to God the "fanbase" is ruining the good name of PC gaming, with noobs screaming LOL PC MASTER RACE everywhere. I don't enjoy this kind of news anymore because to them, who turned my passion to a fucking joke. Just get laid or something. It's not that difficult.

    The one on the right looks like when my glasses are dirty. The one in the center is the best imo.

    The subsurface scattering is kinda meh ....the rest is kinda interesting, but there's nothing groundbreaking... changes are getting more subtle with each new release...

    While it's important to have good graphics developers should focus more on the gameplay of their games and the story too (*cough* Destiny *cough*).

    PlayStation won me (while still being a Nintendo gamer at heart) over for their awesome Naughty Dog exclusives so I'm not really wowed by this.

    I don't see any difference between the first two pictures; and I don't get the point of the third one? I mean it looks blurry. Is that the point?

    I honestly can't tell the difference between the left and middle one, but the right one looks a little worse, it looks too smooth and doll-like.

    Interesting.
    I felt like fiddling a bit, mainly as I could not see some of the differences too clearly but also just to fiddle
