On Wednesday, "Battlefield 4" was announced from EA as well as a handful of other features, which you can check out on Examiner.com today.

As for Enlighten, this technology has been an EA veteran. The tech has been featured in many other games like "Medal of Honor: Warfighter," "Eve Online" and "Battlefield 3."

The technology will also be featured in the upcoming game from BioWare, "Dragon Age 3: Inquisition."

Recently, Geomerics’ founder Dr. Chris Doran talked about what it means to the company to be working with the next-generation of games.

"We are delighted to be working on PlayStation 4. The hardware is everything we were hoping for in a next-generation console, and a huge step forward from the current generation.

"Real-time global illumination was a big deal for games running on the current generation of hardware, but it required developers to make some compromises. With PlayStation 4, those days are behind us.

"We can finally unleash the full power of Enlighten, and allow game developers working on PlayStation 4 games to bring far deeper levels of dynamism and quality to game lighting. We cannot wait to see what developers produce with Enlighten," Doran said.

On the Frostbite Engine 3 side of things, this bad-boy is most definitely one of the game engines that will be powering a lot of Xbox 720 and PS4 games.
