Unreal Engine 4.9 – DirectX 12 Tech Demo Now Available for Download
If you’ve updated to Microsoft’s new Wondows 10 and have a DirectX 12 compatible graphics card then I’m sure you must be excited to test the latest API on your own rigs. While a number of DirectX 12 games are in development, we are still waiting for any of these to arrive.
Thanks to a PC games modder CryZENx, who has now published a tech demo ported with DirectX 12 support. Created using Unreal Engine 4.9, the demo represents a mix of CryZENx’s Metroid Prime project and Epic’s Sun Temple Demo.
That means you can now essentially control Samus Aran and explore the Sun Temple using a first-person or third-person perspective. Further, you’ll be able to shoot her gun using left click, or enable a series of purple particle effects by pressing 1 on your keyboard. Press the left Ctrl key if you want to morph into a ball.
This is a standalone tech demo based on Unreal Engine 4.9, so I’ll suggest pretty much everyone to give it a try. Various users who have already tested the demo report that it runs smoothly in both DirectX 11 and DirectX 12 versions, although the DX12 variant seemes to run better.

Earlier, CryZENx published a version of the Unreal Engine 4 Elemental Demo and also posted a video showing the demo running on his own system featuring an Intel i7-4790K CPU @ 4.8Ghz, an EVGA Nvidia GTX 980 Ti @ 1366mhz core / 4100mhz memory and 32GB of DDR3-2400 quad RAM.
