E3 2012: Square Enix Kicks Off The Next-Gen Race With Luminous
While everyone patiently waits for the demo of the Unreal 4 Engine, which promises to show off the next-generation of visuals for consoles and PC’s, Square Enix decided to kick proceedings off with a display of their own new engine. Introducing Luminous, Square Enix’s step into the next-gen.
Square Enix decided to show off their new toy with a little tech demo named Agni’s Philosophy, which can be seen above. Everything in this tech demo is apparently running in real-time, which was reiterated by the Square Enix representatives during the conference when they unveiled the demo as the “FINAL FANTASY REALTIME TECH DEMO”. It looks absolutely exquisite, especially when it comes to those small details such as the old man’s beard and those millions of little red sparks flying around.
Will Unreal 4 be on the same level of quality, or have Square Enix just pulled off the biggest surprise of E3? Make your move Epic.
