The Astronauts, the immensely talented studio behind the great adventure title, The Vanishing of Ethan Carter,  are working on a PlayStation 4 version of the game. According to their Twitter feed, they have ported The Vanishing of Ethan Carter to the Unreal Engine 4.

They clarified that the Unreal Engine 3 does not work on the current-gen consoles, that is why in order to port the game to the PS4 they had to use the Unreal Engine 4.

They also explained that porting the game to the Unreal Engine 4, was a nice way for them to learn the engine. They continued to state that the reason for porting the game to Unreal Engine 4, was to bring it to the PS4.

Even though we have seen games on the PS4 and Xbox One, that are using the Unreal Engine 3, that was a case of the developers making changes within the source code. Most recent examples is Batman Arkham Knight, which uses a heavily modified Unreal Engine 3, and Mortal Kombat X.

 

 

The Vanishing of Ethan Carter is already a gorgeous looking game on the PC

The Vanishing of Ethan Carter is a great game, that already features some incredibly looking visuals on the PC, as well as of the most beautiful forest environments found in a video game. Unreal Engine 4, will likely provide some very nice enhancements, and it will definitely turn out to be one great looking title that PlayStation 4 owners should look out for. There’s was no mention of whether an Unreal Engine 4 version of The Vanishing o Ethan Carter will be making its way to the PC, but I would believe, it could be quite possible.
