GDC 2014: It’s Like E3, But For Developers (Mostly)

Game Developers Conference RealGamerNewz Event

In jus a couple of weeks The Game Developers Conference 2014 (GDC 2014) will take place. GDC is an industry trade event where professionals such as programmers, artists, executives, marketing teams, public relations crews, publishers, investors, gaming press, and more all come together to discuss important issues facing the industry as a whole this year. Beyond this, panels are held with topics often ranging from analysis of cultural phenomena, business politics, technological innovation, strategic posturing, major industry announcements, and more.

Over the years GDC has also become similar to PAX and E3 in that gamers who are sitting out on the sidelines and catching the information flowing from the event in the comfort of their own homes have come to expect a certain amount of announcements from major publishers and game companies (especially ‘The Big 3’). Many game companies have already began listing their lineups for the GDC 2014 event and appointment booking is already commencing as well.

Readers can rest assured that all of the trailers released at / alongside this year’s GDC 2014 will find their way to RealGamerNewz in the highest quality resolution available. Beyond that, we are committed to posting relevant and important industry / developer issues that are brought up by this year’s panels and news announcements. Be sure to shoot us an email if we miss anything or if you have specific topics you want discussed with our business partners and crew (email us at our tips account). Expect a WrapUp Videocast or two in addition to the stream of coverage the team aims to provide, with the potential appearance of industry insiders and indie developers chiming in on these issues with the RGN Podcast Crew and / or through text-based RGN Analysis articles.

Xbox ONE Exclusive Quantum Break Uses ‘Digital Molecular Matter’ System for Hyper Realism

Quantum Break Xbox ONE Exclusive 3

Photo-realism is not the only art style that can be used in video games but it is often the one that gets talked about the most. Gamers are on the edge especially with new next-generation consoles like Xbox ONE on the market. With titles like Quantum Break, gamers are looking to see hyper realism and Pixelux, the developer behind this Xbox ONE exclusive, has come forward to let us know technologically speaking how that’s going to happen.

Quantum Break Xbox ONE Exclusive 2

Real time destruction of various types of material has been made possible in the game by a system Pixelux refers to as Digital Molecular Matter (or DMM for short) platform for items to seemingly disintegrate either in real-time or slow motion on the Xbox ONE. What we’ve been shown so far of the title has been kept strictly under wraps (search around our Xbox ONE section long enough though and you’ll probably find we snuck a few clips on the air anyways – you know we’re renegades, that’s why you like us).

Quantum Break Xbox ONE Exclusive 4

There’s also a television show planned to be launching as part of the Quantum Break experience, though it’s unclear exactly how it all plays together. The game itself looks terribly interesting and could be a surprise hit among the Microsoft constituents. Players even get to switch places between hero and villain through junction points in the experience. Stay tuned to RealGamerNewz.com for more next-gen goodness as it becomes available.

Quantum Break is being developed by Remedy who has worked on titles such as Alan Wake as well as Max Payne and is being published by Microsoft Game Studios exclusively for the Xbox ONE next-generation game console and all-in-one multimedia entertainment system.
