Source 2 Engine – First Screenshots & Off-Camera Footage From Valve’s VR Portal Tech Demo

At GDC 2015, Valve showcased a VR Portal Tech Demo that was powered by Source 2 Engine. And today, Valve released to the public the slides from Alex Vlachos’ session, thus revealing the first direct feed images from that tech demo.

As Joe Ludwig – Programmer at Valve – claimed, this VR Portal Tech Demo was indeed running on Source 2 Engine.

Do note that these images showcase the VR capabilities of Source 2 Engine, and not what the engine is really capable of.

We’ve also included a video from MaximumPCMag who captured this Tech Demo in action during GDC 2015.

While he is a die-hard PC gamer, his gaming roots can be found on consoles. John loved - and still does - the 16-bit consoles, and considers SNES to be one of the best consoles. Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
