The Heretic is one of the most impressive tech demos we’ve seen recently. Powered by Unity 2019.3, this tech demo showcases what modern-day PC hardware is capable of. And yesterday, Unity Engine released a new video in which we can see the developers manipulating this demo in real-time.
The Heretic tech demo includes every possible aspect of the High Definition Render Pipeline (HDRP) with the integrated Post-Processing stack, and the Visual Effect Graph. Moreover, it takes advantage of motion blur, bloom, depth of field, film grain, color grading, and Panini projection. Not only that, but it packs real-time lights and uses a probe-based lighting solution.
We’ve asked Unity Engine whether it plans to release this tech demo. After all, the team had previously released its Adam Tech Demo to the public. Unfortunately, though, there are no plans right now for a public release.
Unity got in touch with us and confirmed that a demo will come out.
Naturally, we’ll be sure to keep you posted about this incredible tech demo so stay tuned for more. Until then, enjoy the following video!

John is the founder and Editor in Chief at DSOGaming. He is a PC gaming fan and highly supports the modding and indie communities. Before creating DSOGaming, John worked on numerous gaming websites. 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. John has also written a higher degree thesis on the “The Evolution of PC graphics cards.”
