The best they could come up with for a tech demo is a rip of Lord of the Rings?

Graphics engine is good. But still... *meh. Current engines is still good in my opinion. Fox Engine's graphics can do better even at a current gen console; except that it is exclusive for Metal Gear Series.

this looks pretty good, but will the 7870 I just bought be able to handle it?

Demos usually look way better than anything ever launched with the tech.

I just hope UE4 uses better shadows than UE3... we have beautiful games that look so ugly because of the bad shadows.

 @Coleone12 this is the the real time in the game engine, not a rendered scene.

I try to make this simple, but it requires a little bit of knowledge in game or mod making.

 

Basically, both of those games individual zones (a zone is just what I'll be calling a map.) can't reach a size of more than 7 miles. After the zone reaches the max size, a new one must be created.  

 

These "zones" aren't actually connected to each other. The game just makes them appear to be connected. In reality, the game is loading you into a new  zone .

 

Borderlands for instance, every so often, has to have a load screen. It's impossible to get around them.  You have to go through some sort of checkpoint to get the next area. 

 

Skyrim is similar, in a way. There are still load screens when you go inside or outside. However, Skyrims outdoor areas are MUCH bigger than 7 miles with no load screens whatsoever.  The entire outdoor environment is seamless. 

 

I described it the best I can. Hope it helps.
