Ben Gilbert’s article states,

“…developed by Epic Games, the award-winning Unreal Engine is known for its cutting-edge graphics technology, world-class toolset and scalability across PC, console and mobile platforms. Unreal Engine tools are used to accelerate the creation of high-quality games, applications, training simulations, visualizations, digital films and animated entertainment. Powering hundreds of games and integrated with two dozen leading middleware technologies, Unreal Engine 3 (UE3) holds more than 20 technology awards, including eight Game Developer Front Line Awards and five Develop Industry Excellence Awards. The Unreal Engine also owns a seat in the Front Line Awards Hall of Fame. Unreal Engine 4 (UE4), winner of multiple Best of E3 2012 awards, offers unprecedented graphical capabilities and workflow improvements that provide unparalleled accessibility for developers building the next generation of games and applications.”

It is easy to see what the Unreal Engine 4 has to offer the gaming community.  Remember that just a short 40 years ago, gamers where pushing around little white dots on the Atari systems. The leaps and bounds of the gaming technology has never been so clear than to compare the Atari system to the concepts of the Unreal Engine 4. This is indeed some exciting news for gamers!
