Thins you can do with Unreal Engine 4
Take your level design to a whole new level and make environments as beautiful as the one created by Blizzard Entertainment developers Martin Holmberg and Thiago Klafke. It was one of the finalists of the Allegorythmic Throne Room challenge.
UE 4s’ rendering capabilities allow casual users and professionals alike to create amazing 3D portraits and realistically looking models. The video above shows a work of the Until Dawn lead character designer Baolong Zhang. He made a beautiful 3D model of Daenerys Targaryen from the award winning book series A Song of Ice and Fire and the popular HBO show Game of Thrones.
The power and the various tools of Unreal Engine 4 allow video game enthusiasts to recreate their favorite projects with modern graphics. For example, environment designer Liam Tart works on remaking Valves’ hit video game Half-Life 2 using this game engine.
