Confirmed: 'Next-gen' Star Wars 1313 is Unreal Engine 3

Postby daveyboy2000 » 07 Jun 2012, 00:16

What can I say, some of the next gen games ive seen at e3 look incredible but, I hope that this is what the games “WILL” look like rather than this is what the games “MIGHT” look like several years into the next gen life cycle when developers get used to the soft/hardware.

Been many times before you have had manufactures/developers say, “this is what the games will look like on our new system” and by the time the new next gen systems are released, you will be lucky if the games that come out are half as good as the demos. I.e, Killzone 2 E3 demo, when the game finally released it was about half of that of the E3 demo.

If this is what the first gen games will look like on next gen systems using UR3 engine, what will the games look like when the developers get used the new hardware with UR4 engine. Incredible!!

Damn, that's impressive. UE3 must be pushed to the limit then but showing still life in the old dog yet.

This makes me happy. It's nice to know that this is running on current gen engine tech and still look THIS good, just makes me go all giddy as to what UE4 will be able to do.

That explains why I was not impressed by the graphics then. It was okay. I was hardly jaw dropped though.

As they say in the article. We already knew the Samaritan demo was unreal engine 3. Why is this a surprise?

It's a good looking game but i honestly think the Last of Us was more impressive. I see Watch Dogs is current gen and coming to 360,PS3 and possibly Wii U. Great news!

SO if its running on UE3 it might be coming to the wiiU then. Or maybe even the 360 and ps3. It's not so much what they can do later on but what they can do now after they've had all this time totinker ith things and get them spot on.

There are few facts about this game at all so just from looking at the visuals how can we anyone say it is a next gen game?!

If it is UE3 running this game then that is great news for this generation of consoles ... hopefully!

To assume makes an ASS out of U and ME CVG ... give us facts but stop going on about the PS4 & the 720! There weren't announced at E3 2012 so get over it & stop going on about it until E3 2013 for goodness sake!

I saw that some of the videos for Star Wars 1313 but I wasn't overly impressed. The game itself looked overly derivative and the last thing Star Wars needs is a waist-high-walls third-person shooter, especially when a sequel to the classic Tie Fighter or Dark Forces would be the better choice. The graphics were certainly decent but being a PC gamer I'm already used to that level of graphical fidelity - I didn't suspect for even a second it would be UE4. WatchDogs was easily the most impressive game to come out of E3, both graphically and in terms of gameplay. SW1313 isn't even close and I'm surprised CVG would suggest otherwise.
