So we are getting pretty close to releasing something public..... No really!
We plan to release a sort of tech demo in the next few weeks to serve a couple of purposes. First is to allow us to figure out the "packaging" process for a public release and to make sure we can deliver a public build that works. UE4 is a lot different than UE3 in many ways so there is a lot of learning on our part still. Secondly is to get an idea of performance characteristics with various performance settings and to see how an area with specific design characteristics works on various machines.
To be clear, this is not Ground Branch the game. There is no "game" in this release. It is a small purpose built area that shows off the density of map design, foliage density, lighting setups and various effects. You can walk around and shoot a weapon, but there is no purpose or "mission".
Here is a screen from the editor of part of the area:We really want to have solid and playable releases for Ground Branch. This is the first step in getting there and an actual playable build..... and that isn't to far away. :)
