A few weeks ago we reported that the next-generation Enlighten lighting engine was coming to the PlayStation 4, and today, we get a first glimpse of the new technology. Made by a company called Geometrics, Enlighten’s visuals look just stunning, with ultra-realistic lighting (as expected), showcasing a dynamic lighting feature that goes from day to evening, to night.
Geometrics will unveil more details and demos of the Enlighten engine at GDC, which is just one week away. The engine will be available on the PlayStation 4, the PC, and the upcoming Xbox 720 console as well. Enlighten was a popular middleware for previous generation consoles, appearing in games such as Battlefield 3.
The PlayStation 4 has already received support from all major game engine makers, including Epic’s Unreal Engine 4 and CryTek’s CryEngine 3.
The video below showcases Enlighten’s abilities, and is running on a PlayStation 4.
