PlayStation 4-based tech demo for Unreal Engine 4 gets the lava flowing

A tech demo is out showing Epic Games' new Unreal Engine 4 running on Sony's next-gen Playstation 4 console.

The video, titled "Elemental," features an armored villain-esque character sitting dormant in a frigid, abandoned-looking hall. He is suddenly awakened by a gust of wind and snow flying into his sanctum, and proceeds to call forth lava to awaken magical mechanisms and free him from his frozen throne.

"Elemental" was originally revealed last June; this version is slightly extended and is, of course, running on the PS4.

Epic revealed a new UE4 tech demo, Infiltrator, earlier today.
