The demonstration movie starts with the feeling of reflecting the inside of the collapsed building. I do not think that the actions such as the red flag, the shadow, the smoke which wind in the wind are real-time rendering.

The texture of a knight who sleeps deep inside the building is amazing.

Knight waking up while raising flames from the eyes.

The knight awakens and the building further collapses.

A knight who walks towards the opened door.

The outside is a snowy world. It is drawn clearly to a mountain that can be seen far away.

The image of the erupting volcano is realistic like a movie.

Finally it ends at the place where the power of the flames lodged in the huge hammer the knight holds.

In addition, Unreal Engine 4 also supports Sony's "PlayStation 4", and demonstration movies are also released.

A crack enters the ground ...

I reached the mountain of ice in a remote place.

Then the ice giant appeared from the mountain.

And while exhaling blue breath, the giant cried and the movie ended.
