We got an effective difference between Unreal Engine 3 vs. Unreal Engine 4. A comparison was uploaded by Candyland youtuber that shows us clearly how Unreal Engine 3 is bit outdated compared to Unreal Engine 4. The comparison is done on the basis of The Vanishing of Ethan Carter game. This game was released on September 26, 2014 on PlayStation 4 and PC. The new PS4 supports Unreal Engine 4 where you get a bit more updated and detailed graphics. Compared to that PC graphics is still on the lower end. The verison on PS4 looks incredible and more detailed compared to PC. The difference can be clearly seen. On console you get more detailed graphics, better color quality and amazing output. The PC that is used in the video has GTX 780 Ti 3GB graphics card. It is quite a high end video card.
But still PS4 is capable to produce better and clear graphics with its GPU compared to a very high end PC. There would be many games coming up for PS4 that will have updated graphics engine. This gives a clear difference that graphics quality is lot better on consoles compared to PC even after having very high end hardware. There are many games coming up that are based on Unreal Engine 4. It is obvious that the new version will be better. But many GPU that fall in the high end series lack support for Unreal Engine 4. Due to which if you are having the best system with a widescreen monitor, your GPU quality still lacks. The Vanishing of Ethan Carter gameplay video below will give you the clear difference.
