Engine tech demos are great for multiple reasons. For one, the demos are an indirect plug for the game in which the engine will debut. Additionally, that allows us to shamelessly tag the aforementioned game in this post to get more hits. Simply mentioning Battlefield 3 will no doubt lure in a hive of open-mouthed gamers.
If you’re into light (and let’s face it, who isn’t) then don’t pass by this tech demo for DICE’s Frostbite 2 engine. For the more tech savvy, the demo displays quasi-realtime radiosity with the help of the Enlighten middleware toolkit from Geomerics. Unfortunately, there’s no booms or pew pew pews in the demo, but hopefully the vid will shine some light on what’s to come in Battlefield 3. Oh snap, see what I did there? Whatever, hit the jump to get a glimpse of the hotness yourself.
