Computer games sometimes look astonishing today. Not infrequently, a second gaze is needed to distinguish whether a real football match or the current offshoot of the “FIFA” series is flickered via a television screen. The fact that the end of the flagpole is not reached for a long time ago showed the developers of the Unity engine. At the end of March 2022, they presented a real-time demo video of their graphic routine, which was hardly distinguishable from a real film. In addition to Unity, it is mainly the Unreal Engine of Developers Epic Games, which is used for the development of games – and here you now improve.

Two years after announcement of Unreal Engine 5, the new graphics routine is now available. It not only brings improved ease of use for developers, trumps, especially with new features for displaying photorealistic graphics. This includes about the tool lumen which includes a fully dynamic and global lighting solution for photorealitic lighting effects. And with the application Nanite can be realized according to Epic Games scenarios with extremely many geometric details. One of the first major games that arise on the basis of the Unreal Engine 5 is the next “The Witcher” offshoot of CD project Red.

Fortnite runs on Unreal Engine 5

EPIC Games itself has changed his online shooter “Fortnite” in December 2021 on the new graphics routine to test them in practice before other developers hand to the software. At the same time, the company published an impressive playable demo called “The Matrix Awakens”, in the Keanu Reeves and Carrie-Ann Moss, the main actors of the “matrix” films, through an open world strip. This open world is available to developers now as a basis for experiencing around experiencing. This also applies to the shooter “Lyra” developed by Epic Games, which should serve as a learning resource for developers and reminds of the classic “Unreal Tournament”.

The Unreal Engine is regularly used in film productions off the game development. So Disney used them for the implementation of the “Star Wars” series “The Mandalorian”. EPICS Technical Director Kim Libreri assumes the verge that the use of Unreal Engine 5 in combination with the latest games platforms is becoming increasingly blurring between films and games. If studios for films had developed graphics developed earlier, earlier to use them in games, it could be possible according to Libreri in the future to take them one to one.
