Remade with Unreal Engine 4
The Vanishing of Ethan Carter looked great as is, but now it's even sharper. The Astronauts rebuilt the eerie adventure game in Unreal Engine 4 and released it as a free update on Steam.
Tweaks were made to address common com...
And other classics
Just like the Dtoid staff's attempt at drawing him last year, Kirby on Unreal Engine 4 just doesn't quite sit right. Maybe it's the way his gums (gums?) flap open to suck up a whole lot of nothing. Maybe it's a gritty filter...
There are some frame rate issues

Gears of War creator's next arena shooter
Clifford Bleszinski (Gears of War, Unreal Tournament) is working on a new sci-fi arena shooter, code named BlueStreak. While it still doesn't have a final name, it does have an engine. Bleszinski's Boss Key studio is wo...
That's not a real room
Epic Games is no longer charging developers a monthly subscription for Unreal Engine 4. The engine is now free for anyone to use. Well, free to a point -- "When you ship a game or application, you pay a 5% royalty on gross re...

Enter the world of survival horror

Can I live here? It must still be cheaper than San Francisco
3D artist and level designer Benoît Dereau, who has previously worked on Dishonored, has made one of the most impressive Unreal Engine 4 tech demos I've seen, as far as photo realism goes. It makes PT lo...

Checking in with the latest build
I came in expecting little from this latest Unreal Tournament footage considering how not far along the game was in the last video, but this one is much more worthy of your time. Movement mechanics, levels, weapons, and team...
Also, Raiden gets even more annoying moves
For whatever reason, AOL accidentally let the cat out of the bag about Tekken 7, which is going to be running on Unreal Engine 4, and now we have a big ol' trailer for the game. Meanwhile, in a different game about guys with dumb hair hitting each other, Raiden has been revealed for Mortal Kombat X, and he seems to have a very loose understanding of what thunder can and can't block out.

They need Steven Hansen on the case
The police of Salem, Massachusetts are obviously tapped out creatively. What else would be their reasoning for naming a murderer whose calling card is drawings of bells, the pun-deficient "Bell Killer?" Seriously, not even a...
It's got soul, but it's not a soldier
Ever since I completed Heavy Rain and walked away from it looking for a similar departure, I've been unable to find a suitable replacement beyond the realm of classic adventure gaming. Though Heavy Rain was plagued with...
