We have feature the latest Epic’s tech demo on previous post. The 2 demo wasn’t the only demo made by the Gears studio, back in 2011 at the Game Developer Conference, Epic released their real time tech demo for their Unreal engine called Samaritan. It was a pretty mind blowing as everything was running at real time and featuring many cool feature such as tessellation and displacement, Image-based reflections, subsurface scattering, bokeh depth of field, etc. These feature now available for UDK, the free version of the engine.

Pete Hayes is one of the artist working at Epic that contribute to this phenomenal tech demo. He made the weapons and many other assets used in it. Other than this he also worked on Gears of War series as well as the Unreal franchises. Below are some of Pete works on Samaritan tech demo.
