During the announcement and unveiling of the PlayStation 4, Epic Games also showed off its Unreal Engine 4 running on the PlayStation 4.

“We are thrilled to build onto our long-established success with PlayStation,” said Tim Sweeney, Epic’s founder and chief executive officer. “Unreal Engine 4 is expertly designed for the next generation of game development and the outstanding power of PlayStation 4. Today’s demonstration offers a preview of what developers can accomplish using our tools to create games for PlayStation 4.”

The demo starts where the original demo left off, with the Elemental knight shattering the landscape to release an icy, cold-spewing demon in all its real-time reflected, GPU-powered particle effect goodness.

Here’s hoping that this new engine, with all its visual amazing-ness doesn't bring forth the yellow light of death from the previous generation, but it does look oh-so-AWESOME!
