Screen Space Reflections are being treated as the current big thing any next-gen game should have since when Crytek showed them in their famous Crysis 2 DirectX 11 update. So what are they? Unreal Engine 4 (the engine we are currently using for Red:OuT) supports them using a hierarchical system of local cubemaps: basically polling the environment around these probes to calculate quasi-perfect reflections in real time. In case the technical part intrigues you, you can read more about their implementation here: https://docs.unrealengine.com/latest/INT/Resources/Showcases/Reflections/index.html
What it means for us (and for our players) is the joy of next-gen visuals in Red:OuT! Let’s check some comparison screenshots to get a bit more hands-on!
