Unreal Engine 5 Revealed! | Next-Gen Real-Time Demo Running on PlayStation 5

Unreal Engine 5 empowers artists to achieve unprecedented levels of detail and interactivity, and brings these capabilities within practical reach of teams of all sizes through highly productive tools and content libraries.
Join Technical Director of Graphics Brian Karis and Special Projects Art Director Jerome Platteaux (filmed in March 2020) for an in-depth look at "Lumen in the Land of Nanite" - a real-time demonstration running live on PlayStation 5 showcasing two new core technologies that will debut in UE5: Nanite virtualized micropolygon geometry, which frees artists to create as much geometric detail as the eye can see, and Lumen, a fully dynamic global illumination solution that immediately reacts to scene and light changes.
Also present in the demo are next-gen features already available in Unreal Engine 4.25, such as Niagara VFX improvements, Chaos physics and destruction, animation system enhancements, and audio advancements. Unreal Engine 4.25 also includes support for next-gen consoles.

    This is not really a game engine, at least for now, as the computing power required to render this must be near unimaginable. UE4 was quite poorly optimised, so I can only imagine how this would run on an average PC. As of writing, this would be near unusable for game design. It's more like "How games would look like if everyone had PCs from the future" engine. The only purpose I can think of is showing, what modern shaders are capable of, or using it for movie effects. As of now, engines like Source 2, which provides impressive graphics and physics, while being incredibly well optimised, are more relevant for game design. So, in conclusion, while Unreal Engine 5 looks incredible and I applaud to all of the developers, I don't think it could really be usable for designing regular games.

    People are looking at this like its a game trailer. This is an engine trailer. "will this run on my computer" isn't really a valid question here as it's not a game they are making but a framework from which quality graphics like this can be run on current consumer GPUs.

    Character can fly but struggles jumping across a 3 foot gap and then purposely puts herself in danger dodging falling debris instead of flying over/around it. Brilliant design. This framework engine is super impressive, but these types of demos where actual gameplay does not exist really bothers me... because then developers just create "games" like Uncharted, God of War, and Last of Us where it's just basically a slightly interactive super linear movie instead of an actual game with real, fun gameplay mechanics.

    Awesome overall but two minor nitpicks: 1. That puddle of water looks unconvincing unless there's sulphur or a blueish tint spilled over there. 2. The girl's face doesn't look too realistic, although this might be deliberate from game design.

  52. Psych0technic

    Psych0technicPrije dan

    I'm a bit confused. Are they saying that ps5 can actually render so many polygons or that the engine scales them down automatically? I mean, GPU in ps5 isn't THAT much more powerful than say one x.

  53. New Whips

    New WhipsPrije 23 sati

    The ps5 is rendering this and xsx probably can do in real time. It scales down for other consoles like current gen or switch and phones

  54. Axademous

    AxademousPrije dan

    Well PS5 is a little bit more powerful, but I think it's the engine and the optimization itself that plays a big role on those next-gen consoles and how those games work

    yeaaa it looks great but one of the things you can see the most time is the hero, and her hair in around <a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="230">3:50</a> are flying and don't touch her back properly. the whole location looks F. great but lets be true, we would just run the whole time and get the story going. (or maybe i'm to old, and remember the diablo graphics vs cinematics, or warcraft but after reforge i want to forget about it)
