Epic Games Shows Off Unreal 5 Engine on Playstation 5

Unreal Engine 5

Epic Games has released an amazing look at the Playstation 5 running a demo of the Unreal 5 engine in Lumen in the Land of Nanite. The new Unreal Engine will become available to developers in preview sometime in early 2021, and hopefully we can see a new Unreal Tournament come to frutition.

“One of our goals in this next generation is to achieve photorealism on par with movie CG and real life, and put it within practical reach of development teams of all sizes through highly productive tools and content libraries,” said Epic.

“Nanite virtualized micropolygon geometry frees artists to create as much geometric detail as the eye can see,” Epic Games said, according to VG247. “Nanite virtualized geometry means that film-quality source art comprising hundreds of millions or billions of polygons can be imported directly into Unreal Engine—anything from ZBrush sculpts to photogrammetry scans to CAD data—and it just works.

“Nanite geometry is streamed and scaled in real time so there are no more polygon count budgets, polygon memory budgets, or draw count budgets; there is no need to bake details to normal maps or manually author LODs; and there is no loss in quality.”
