4.12 Preview 2 Released For Early Adopters

By Jess Hider

The second Preview release of 4.12 is now available to download from the launcher. This release comes with updates and new features for rendering, such as improved high quality reflections, an update for the Dual Coat shader model (to now specify a second normal map for the surface below the clearcoat layer) and support for realtime planar reflections.

To download Preview 2, head over to the Epic Games Launcher and select the "Library" tab. Click "Add Versions", and choose 4.12 Preview 2. If you have a Preview version already installed, simply hit 'Update'.
