Unreal Engine 4 Forest Environment by DICE Vegetation Artist Looks Great; Not Quite as Good as Frostbite 3


Simon Barle, Vegetation Artist at DICE, has shared some screenshots of his Unreal Engine 4 project, showcasing a beautiful forest environment. It does look quite impressive indeed, with some incredible attention to detail, as can be seen in the images in the gallery below.

Simon Barle's Unreal Engine 4 forest environment does look quite impressive, but not as visually striking as the forest of Endor environment in Star Wars Battlefront. Even though DICE's implementation of photogrammetry and some spectacular use of lighting makes most of the notable difference, the Endor environment is a completed map, worked on by many artists, so a direct comparison wouldn't be quite fair.

Regardless it's nice to see how the Unreal Engine 4 project develops and how it compares to what it's unquestionably the most impressive engine at the moment, given Frostbite's amazing use in Star Wars Battlefront, Need for Speed, Mass Effect Andromeda, and Mirror's Edge.

Other Unreal Engine 4 projects of note include the gorgeous Absention, a new survival horror title inspired by true survival horror greats such as Resident Evil, Eternal Darkness and Silent Hill so fans can expect a mixture of mental challenge, intense gameplay, and immersive environments. ADR1FT, Three One Zero’s narrative-driven survival game that takes the genre to breathless levels. Dontnod and publisher Focus Home Interactive, announced Vampyr, a new role-playing game powered by Unreal Engine 4 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. Ad Infinitum is a first-person survival horror adventure set in a surreal world during WWI. It is built on the Unreal Engine 4 and is currently under development for the PC.

We will bring you any new information on Barle's work, as well as more Unreal Engine 4 projects as soon as it becomes available.
