Blacklight developer Zombie Studios is making a new game with Epic's Unreal Engine 4, it's announced.

It's a psychological thriller for the PC due out in the second quarter of 2013.

Zombie Studios chief Jared Gerritzen said Unreal Engine 4 “will be a fundamental benefit to our studio as we move into the next generation of games and take our studio to the next level”.

Seattle-based developer Zombie Studios is best-known for the Blacklight games. The first, Tango Down, launched in 2010 on console. A follow-up, the free-to-play Retribution, released in April this year on PC.

Do you need a 680/7970 to run Unreal Engine 4 games or i just got that fully wrong. I am saying this because Epic was running their tech demo on really high end pc. How will these games scale down for lower tier video cards.

Game Of The Month

Unreal 4 will rule next gen as UE3 did on this gen.

Btw at first when I saw the OP's pic I thought Blacklight Retribution was already out ;p.

Anyways, cant wait to see what this game will be about, my friends played the hell out of Retribution ;o.

Edit: Psychological thriller eh? Free from zombies woot! l0l

I'm sure it will be very scalable, like UE3

Will probably be doable with weaker stuff but not MUCH weaker.5 year old cards or so will probably die instantly.
Techdemos show always what is possible with UltraMax Settings while a game won't use it in a long long time.


And yeah...UE4 will be the most used Engine like the UE3 was in this Gen but not cause its the best.
It is cause everyone can afford it - Even people at home can afford while you have to pay insane amounts of money to get the license of CryEngine3,Frostbyte2 Engine and other stuff.THose Engine are all superior to the Unreal Engine but no one can afford it.
And yes those other engines are superior cause they are able to create REALISTIC stuff...The UE4 will be used for the same things as the UE3 was in this Gen...Gorillas on Steroids,Oil tears and everything will look the same.

I hope it's a little less popular though, or that devs are more easily able to use the toolset.

Many games at the start of this generation looked very similar due to the widespread prevelance of the Unreal engine.



A thing of beauty, strength, and grace lies behind that whiskered face.

We know nothing more about it right now, but there's of course a possibility that they don't mention it because they're not allowed to.

Interesting that when I googled just now, I see that Square Enix signed a deal with Epic to license UE4. Interesting. Makes me hope they'll do a better job of porting their Japanese titles to PC.

Edit: I see your edit, but Blacklight: Retribution is their F2P game and it's already out. This here is a new game running on UE4 that has no name at the moment. Probably won't be F2P (since it's a "psychological thriller")
