The tech demo for Nvidia’s Project Shield was created using Epic’s Unreal Engine 4, the hardware manufacturer has revealed.
Nvidia says this is the first time it has relied on a third party game engine for a product presentation, and that it is now exclusively using the Unreal Engine for such demos.
The Project Shield presentation at CES 13 may have been a landmark in the partnership between these two companies, but it’s not like the two haven’t been working closely for quite a while.
“As a long-established Unreal Engine partner, we understand the sheer power that Unreal Engine 4 puts into developers’ hands,” said Nvidia’s senior vice president of content and technology Tony Tamasi.
“We immediately took the opportunity to utilize UE4’s high-end graphics features and incredible workflow to showcase how our graphics hardware is pushing the industry forward.”
