Unreal Engine 4 reveal “hopefully later this year”

Samaritan running on single Nvidia card.

Epic Games showed off Unreal Engine 4 to “select licensees, partners and prospective customers during the exhibition” at the Game Developers Conference today. 

When will the public get a look at it? “Hopefully later this year,” according to Epic VP Mark Rein (via Stephen Totilo).

Last year, Epic showed off its now infamous ‘Samaritan’ demo running on 3 GTX 580 Nvidia cards. At GDC today, it showed the demo running on a single, not yet released Kepler Nvidia card.

The longterm goal, according to Rein, “is to be able to do Samaritan in Flash.” And its already one step closer. Epic showcased the Xbox 360 version of Unreal Tournament III running in Flash today.

Unsurprisngly, Unreal Engine 4 is “blowing people’s socks off,” Rein teased. We’ll find out how loose our socks are come later this year.
