We all know that this generation started with a seized engine and is still going fast. Given the lack of PS5 and Xbox Series stock (there won’t be any consoles until 2024), most developers prefer their games to be released on all possible platforms, whether new or old, and we’re wondering. accustomed to intergenerational projects that do not. finish exploiting the technological potential of machines. There are even those who have lost faith and already think that there is not much room for improvement graphically. Ha!
We bring you a new display of Unreal Engine 5. A technical demonstration of those who take the hiccups away. Or in other words, a look at the graphics of the future. Using the new engine from Fortnite’s parents, several developers have recreated Etchū-Daimon Station in Japan, and the result couldn’t be more impressive. A veritable festival of light effects, textures and reflections. It’s imagining a horror game taking place in such a place and giving us goosebumps.

Unreal Engine 5, the graphics engine of the future
The new The Witcher, Kingdom Hearts 4, the next Tomb Raider, STALKER 2, Dragon Quest XII, Senua’s Saga: Hellblade 2… More and more games are confirming to work with the Epic Games graphics engine. Set to dominate the generation just like Unreal Engine 3 did in the days of PS3 and Xbox 360, a while ago we broke down the 5 keys to the new engine in a small report. There you can read the main reasons why it becomes the preferred choice of developers.
Going back to today’s demo, which at times feels like a live-action movie, the question is when will we get to that? Will our “brand new” consoles at 500 euros see it? Will it be the exclusive playground of the privileged race of PC masters? Fingers crossed that we don’t have to wait long before we have projects like this in our hands that will dispel our doubts.
