Epic Games and Nvidia have joined forces to create product presentations using Unreal Engine 4.
Nvidia had used the engine during Project Shield unveil at CES 2013. They used the Unreal Matinee cinematic system to create the fly-through video to show the world what handheld could do.
It has also been revealed that this was the first time Nvidia had used a third-party game engine instead of their own internal engine. Not bad for Epic Games considering Sony and Microsoft will be supporting them as well. Sony had used the engine during the PS4 reveal event and it was the first thing shown to demonstrate how powerful the system was.
“As a long-established Unreal Engine partner, we understand the sheer power that Unreal Engine 4 puts into developers’ hands,” said Tony Tamasi, senior vice president of content and technology at Nvidia. “We immediately took the opportunity to utilize UE4’s high-end graphics features and incredible workflow to showcase how our graphics hardware is pushing the industry forward.”
“Nvidia are always on the cutting edge, and we were thrilled to be a part of their awesome Project Shield introduction,” said Mark Rein, vice president and co-founder of Epic Games.
More impressive tech demos could be released by Nvidia to advertise their future graphics cards.
