Square Enix shows off Luminous tech demo on PS4

Moments agom, Square Enix CTO Yoshihisa Hashimoto showed off the developer's Luminous Studio engine running on PlayStation 4.

The demo, the same as last year's Agni's Philosophy, shows off the incredible lighting and volumetric effects capable on PS4. In the demo, a lead female character runs from an invading force with a crystal in hand. As she runs through dilapidated city streets from enemy soldiers, she hides in an alley and consumes a potion that appears to give her magical powers of some kind.

Before long, a dragon swoops in, and the female character mounts it before taking off into the sky over an immense, beautiful city. The demo ends with a Square Enix logo.

According to Hashimoto, the incredible visual fidelity of the demo is Square Enix's target goal for PS4 development.
