Mario Kart Looks Simply Awesome Powered by the Unreal Engine 4
Everybody's favorite Unreal Engine 4 fan project creator, CryZENx, did it again. This time he created a stunningly looking Mario Kart racer and stage using the Unreal Engine 4 (4.9.1). As CryZENx explains the Mario Kart project is still a work in progress. Multiplayer can be viewed at 2:58 with Co-op working with Xiexe. CryZENx's goal is to make Multiplayer work with 64 players, not just 12 players and he promises that it will be quite fun when he finally makes it work. The PC used features an i7 4790 @ 4.8Ghz, a GTX 980 Ti EVGA Superclocked+ ACX 2.0+ OCed @ 464mhz core / 3900mhz Memory, and 32GB DDR3.

CryZENx has recently made available his Zelda Majora's Mask tech demo for download here. While not as impressive as the last Zelda project we have recently seen from ArtistArtorias, which featured a recreation of the Kakariko Village from the Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, it does offer a tease of what a next-gen Zelda title could look like.
