Digital Foundry : Is this truly “4 real” as the tagline says? Last week, a video of motorbiking sim Ride 4 went viral – with many millions of Twitter and YouTube views on an upload by YouTuber Joy of Gaming. On the face of it, it’s easy to see why, when you consider the beautiful, dynamic, near photo-realistic footage playing out in first-person ‘helmet’ view. Based on Unreal Engine 4, the combination of the camera, physics, motion blur, lighting and materials all impress – but to what extent does it push back the boundaries or rendering technology. Does the game live up to the hype, or have we seen it all before with DriveClub Bikes?
