Technology for the upcoming tidal wave of next-gen consoles has been swelling for quite some time.
The guts of new graphics engines were showcased during E3 2012 in June. Only a few months ago the curtains were lifted and the two bruisers of the console world were let loose. We now have come full circle and come right back to where we started.
The 'Enlighten' engine from Geomerics promises to shed light on some of gaming's most anticipated titles. Battlefield 4, Star Wars: Battlefront and Mirror's Edge are just a few that were demonstrated.
Many have argued that the use of lens flares have become a nuisance more than anything, however, it is often a reflection of the game's art style. With Geomerics also being an Unreal Engine 4 partner, we can expect more work with other respected titles.
Regardless of your stance, the engine looks to promise to get you lit.
