While Benoît Dereau doesn’t need to impress anyone in the gaming industry, having worked on the beautifully realised Dishonoured and developed some custom campaigns for Half Life 2 and Left 4 Dead, he has managed to wow a lot of people in the last 24 hours, by releasing one of the best looking Unreal Engine 4 demos yet. This one doesn’t feature explosions or battling mechs though, instead it has him walking around an apartment. But that apartment is oh so real looking.[yframe url=’http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rf045VYP3z4′]
This is one of those cases where squinting could easily fool you into thinking it was a picture from a fancy hotel website.
While Dereua did use some third party assets as part of the flat’s construction and stresses in the video’s description that “This is a personal project and no benefit is derived from this demonstration,” it’s a pretty stunning example of what one person can do with a unique artistic eye and a development engine that can be had for just $20 (£13) a month.
There is no real gameplay to behold here, with the flat merely showing off artistically what an environment is capable of looking like in Unreal Engine 4, but as a quick demonstration of one man’s work, it’s quite staggering.
