Tag: Unreal engine 4 »
Rodeo Games has announced a new upcoming title from the Warhammer 40,000 Universe - Deathwatch: Tyranid Invasion. You'll be the commander of a squad of Space Marines as they battle against the Tyranids in 40 campaign missions. The game will utilize Unreal Engine 4, along RPG gameplay to let you customize your Space Marines like crazy. You can also go up against your friends in online multiplayer battles.
"We were thrilled when Rodeo chose Unreal Engine 4 for Deathwatch," said Mike Gamble, European Territory Manager for Epic Games, in a press release. "These guys have amply illustrated our belief that UE4 is an excellent choice for building high-quality mobile games that really stand apart from the crowd."
Deathwatch: Tyranid Invasion will be out this summer.
Yesterday at Apple's WWDC 2014 keynote, Epic Games showed off Zen Garden, a demo that was created using Metal and Unreal Engine 4. The scene was built in order to demonstrate dynamic scenes and huge vistas using both technologies, and can be seen in the keynote if you skip to around the 99 minute mark.
Zen Garden will be available on the App Store after iOS8's public release this Fall, with further details set to be announced in a live stream on Twitch this Thursday. Metal will be introduced into Unreal Engine 4 "at an appropriate time" after beta NDAs for it have been lifted.
Very little is known about this new game aside from the fact that it's going to be turn-based strategy, has to do with one of Games Workshop's properties, is the first mobile game to announce the use of the newest Unreal Engine, and is due out in the second quarter of 2015. More details will no doubt be made available over time (I'm crossing my fingers for Death Angel, but that's really just a pipe dream), so keep an eye on 148Apps for new announcements!
