Epic Games reveals incredible demo of Unreal Engine 5 that will power the next generation of gaming

Epic Games has revealed an incredible looking real-time demo of Unreal Engine 5 the next iteration of its hugely popular game engine that is used by developers to build games. 

Running live on a pre-production PlayStation 5, Lumen in the land of the Nanite features a woman exploring an ancient desert city where the level of detail in the landscape and rocks makes it almost indistinguishable from reality. It is so important because it sets out a blueprint, a promise, of what the next generation of gaming could look like at its best.

One of our goals in this next generation is to achieve photorealism on par with movie CG and real life

“One of our goals in this next generation is to achieve photorealism on par with movie CG and real life”

An Epic Games spokesperson said: “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.”

The level of detail in the live PS5 demo is incredible, the ruin resembles the archaeological city of Petra in Jordan

The demo features the debut of Epic’s Nanite technology that allows the use of movie quality 3D assets for scenery that give higher detail graphics with none of the computing power requirements of current game engines.The new Lumen lighting technology provides a realistic and fully dynamic lighting system to illuminate environments.

The environments are almost indistinguishable from real-life

The demo also served as a welcome tease of the capabilities of the PlayStation 5. Unreal Engine 5 will be released in early 2021 for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X, PC, Mac and even mobile devices iOS and Android.
