A week ago, Epic Games released a new tech demo for the next version of their game engine, Unreal Engine 5. According to Epic, the demo shown was running on a developer version of the PlayStation 5. It is unclear whether that means the demo is running on actual PlayStation 5 Hardware or a dev-kit unit with close hardware specs to the PlayStation 5. Nevertheless, the demo shows off what the next-generation consoles maybe capable of once in hands of developers focused developing a game fo the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X.
Richard Leadbetter over at Eurogamer, has a in-depth article of the tech demo and interview quotes from Epic's CEO, Tim Sweeney. In that article, they further discuss next-gen architecture, performance capability, asset fidelity, the release plans and immediate goals of Unreal Engine 5. Sweeny also touches on Unreal Engine's early goal to help developers bring next-generation games to as many platforms as possible, from the high-end gaming systems, to mobile devices and even maintaining compatibility with older generation platforms.
While the tech demo looks quite impressive, it is still uncertain and too early to predict when we will begin to see AAA studios releasing titles that truly showcase the potential of Next-Generation hardware and software
A new Nightwave series is out now on all platforms. Nightwave is Warframe's free battle pass / weekly radio play drama.
A serial killer is on the lose, "Glassing" his victims. An old Orokin form of death sentence where the convicted's soul is extracted, and their bodies turned to glass. The Tenno has been tasked to find out who the murderer is.
As typical of Warframe when new mechanics are released, (such as this new investigation and "weave" mechanic) they are not explained in-game so I have written this guide to hopefully save some players from potential frustration over what the Glass Maker asks them to do.
The Glast Gambit is a quest offered by Ergo Glast of “The Perrin Sequence” syndicate to aid the people of the space colony Myconia. The colony having been raided by the nefarious Nef Anyo stole many of Mycona’s resources as well as the children. After staving off the infested on Mycona, the player must participate in a series of challenges in "The Index" to free the Myconian children.
The Duders in the Giant Bomb PC Clan have worked hard to put together a showcase video of the Second Dream Quest in Warframe.
With this new quest now out, the Giant Bomb Warframe PC Clan and I thought it would be fun to spoil the last year's big Cinematic Quest, The Second Dream. With the help of many members of the Giant Bomb Warframe Alliance (Giant Bomb Heavy INC, ForumRunners, NeoGAF, and BBB) I created a compilation video of Giant Bomb Community Presents the Second Dream.
The video is inspired by the promotional trailers for War Within in which showcase and features a number of our PC Community's Warframes playing the climax of Second Dream.
Please let me know what you all think. Those still who have not played the Second Dream, or don't play Warframe at all might have wondered who are inside the Warframes?
Thus, we present The Second Dream
