The most world-class game engine to date, Unreal Engine 4 gives you the power to do more than ever before. Bring your creative visions to life directly in game without programmer assistance via the new Unreal Blueprint.

Unreal Engine 4’s architecture offers fully dynamic lighting features, cutting down on development time and ensuring less iteration on creative ideas. With significant new visual features, Unreal Engine 4 enables you to achieve high-end visuals, while remaining both scalable and accessible to make games for low-spec PCs.

Tool highlights/features for developers include:
  • Make updates directly in game without ever pausing gameplay with Hot Reload. This tool allows you to quickly find and edit C++ code and see those changes reflected immediately in game.
  • After an update is made, Instant Game Preview gives you the power to spawn a player and play anywhere in game without needing to wait for files to save.
  • The all-new Code View saves you time by allowing you to browse C++ functions directly on game characters then jump straight to source code lines in Visual Studio to make changes.
  • Live Blueprint Debugging enables you to interactively visualize the flow of gameplay code while testing your game.
  • Now you can quickly debug and update gameplay behaviors when they happen through the new Simulate Mode. This tool lets you run game logic in the editor viewport and inspect AI as the game characters perform actions.
  • View your game in full-screen within the editing environment with the Immersive View tool. This allows programmers to complete iterations on gameplay changes without added UI clutter or distractions.
  • Possess/Eject Features allow at any time while playing in editor to easily “eject” from the player and take control of the camera to inspect specific in-game objects that may not be behaving properly.

Bounty - DevLog - Update 17

In this update, we have a couple of things for you including more enemies, gun mechanics, environment changes, and game mechanics in general. Lets get into it. Welcome back to the world of Bounty.

First, We have a new little creature. They are called Poppers. They were given this name because they have a tendency to run up to you and explode. They do considerable damage to low level players but will serve to be more of a nuisance to higher level players. They are easy to kill but usally travel in packs so they are not to be taken lightly.

Secondly. we have another enemy, Codename Needles. Needles is another enemy to look out for. He uses his hands and feet to impale his enemies. He puts out a lot of damage and can take quite a bit as well.

We have been hard at work to incorporate some of the awesome ideas that we have for Bounty. First off, we are going to have full gun customization. This will mean that the player can customize thier gun to fit thier playstyle more than before. Before this, you could only change the end barrel and sight on the gun. With the new system, you can change almost everything about the gun. You can change the magazine type, ammo type, sights, barrels, end barrel, grip, side barrel, stock. and trigger type. With this, we hope to have the player find a setup that works with how they play and maximize on that. Check it out in the video below.

We have now implemented a new way for players to maneuver around the world. Introducing the Grapple Magnet (Placeholder name). This will allow the player to shoot a magnet to a object and use another magnet to pull the character to the object. It still needs some more work to make it perfect but it works for now. Although, we do not have proper animations or the model for it yet, you can see the mechanics for it. demonstrated below.

Awhile back, we showed enemy looting or a form of it. In the past, we had loot that would fall out of the enemy when they died. This is a good way but its not the way that we want to go through with it. We want to go the route where the player has to walk up to the body and search the body to get what the enemy had on them. This will immerse the players in the game a little more. Its hard to search a body when you are being shot at. This makes you take out close enemies before looting dead enemies.

We dont have much to show you here but we have expanded on the environments that we have shown in the past. You will have to use your imagination a little but this part of the environment will eventually become a marketplace for the people of the world to shop and a place that you will come to get missions, buy parts and equipment, and may even chase enemies through.

That is all for this week. We hope to see you back here next time for another update and we hope that you will continue to support us as continue to grow the world of Bounty.

If you want to see other models and characters for the game, go here.

What a paradox. Using unreal engine to make more realistic looking games.
Pretty much a lot of them will be epic. :)

U4 is engine with lot of features. Such number of features makes engine more complex to understand. Fortunately a lot of good video and text tutorials are available to anyone willing to learn.

Even expirienced developers need some time to get familiar with engine itself before they unleash their creativity. So, it is no wonder that there is no sudden boom of new games made with U4. But new U4 games poping up more frequently each day on moddb, that is good trend.

Chances are it would only result in upgraded visuals for the most part which isnt much of a good reason to remake it. Best to make something inspired by gaming greats.
