Recently Capcom declared that they would be unveiling a brand new engine utilizing a special Project Morpheus demo called KITCHEN. This demo will showcase a disturbing, unsettling backdrop that, as they claim in the official press release, “draws players into a hyper-realistic virtual world like never before.”
This new tech demo will be running on Capcom’s fully VR compatible, new game engine (name TBD). Said Capcom, “KITCHEN is just a sample of the next level benchmark of gameplay that the company has in the works.” This demo will be featured at the Sony Computer Entertainment America booth #4144 in the West Hall of the Los Angeles Convention Center.
“KITCHEN utilizes state of the art technology to demonstrate what future Capcom titles will have in store. The tech demo renders photorealistic visuals in full 1080p HD at 60 frames per second,” they stated. “Furthermore, it supports the Morpheus system’s increased 120 frames per second output, utilizing the high refresh technology to deliver a smooth and undeniably natural sense of presence to the user.”
The tech demo will also incorporate DTS Headphone: X, which is the latest surround sound technology from DTS. This, DTS claims, provides “an unprecedented level of surround sound through any set of headphones, greatly enhancing the overall sense of auditory realism integral to the virtual reality experience.”
Will this new tech demo be as impressive as it sounds?
