Offset Engine - Unreal 3 Killer?

I dont know wether the engine in development for Project Offset (working title for a Fantasy FPS) will be an Unreal Engine 3 killer, but teh quality on the models certainly is just as good.

Here a screencap:

Fans of Tolkien will rejoice in the fact that they seem to be basing their models heavily off the LotR movie designs, and it looks even better in motion:

Its a 75 meg download, it its well worth it. What impresses me most of all is that this is the self-funded product of a three-man team working out of a small apartment, and are aiming to produce a AAA game based on a very impressive engine that rivals even Unreal 3.

True. But that video was very short and hasn't been nearly as revealing as the Unreal 3 Engine was....well, hell a year ago.

Looks pretty good so far but until they sell more license and recruit more people for their SDK team, i still consider Unreal 3 the mainstream engine of next-gen.
