CD Projekt RED has revealed the debut screen for their latest itteration of the REDengine, REDengine 3.
The screen, as seen above, comes from the engine which was designed to support next-gen consoles. Speaking about the engine, CD Projekt RED’s CEO Adam Badowski said it’s something “many RPG fans dream of”:
“If we look at RPGs nowadays we find two approaches, one which emphasizes the story but limits the game world and one that builds a vast open-world but hampers and simplifies the story. With the REDengine 3 we combine the positive aspects of both approaches for the first time, creating an open environment with a complex, multi-thread story. Together with believable characters, a captivating tale and a world where players can roam freely without loading times, we will be able to move gaming to a new level with a realistic feel and full player immersion. When working on our previous titles, I didn’t dream that we would achieve something like this. Thanks to the support of all our fans, now we have the possibility to use REDengine 3 and create something many RPG fans dream of.”
REDengine 3 is currently being used to develop Cyberpnk 2077. In case you missed the debut trailer for that, check it here.
