The demonstration included works from various digital artists on ArtStation and glimpses from games set to be released in the near future. The showcase left gamers and industry experts alike in awe of the engine’s potential.
The Unreal Engine 5 showcase included a location inspired by The Witcher, a meerkat from the movie “The Lion King”, and a fragment from the action-RPG Black Myth: Wukong, set to release in 2024. The visuals were so realistic that they left viewers questioning if they were looking at a game or a high-definition movie. The showcase was a testament to the three years of hard work since the release of the new generation of consoles.
Adding to the excitement, developer Storm in a Teacup revealed gameplay of their new stealth action game, Steel Seed, at the Future Games Show. This highly anticipated single-player adventure, set to release in 2024, is being built in Unreal Engine 5. The game takes players into a world where AI machines have saved the remnants of the human race from total environmental catastrophe. The game’s stunning science-fiction environments and fast-paced, tactical melee combat system were highlights of the reveal.
The Unreal Engine 5 showcase also featured various projects within Epic’s engine, including a Fifth Element-inspired game pitch from Finn Meinert Matthiesen, a Witcher-inspired village environment, and Epic’s impressive Train station demo – Etchū-Daimon Station. The visuals in these demos were nothing short of breathtaking, demonstrating the power of Unreal Engine 5 and what developers might be able to achieve in the future.
With the Unreal Engine 5 set to power a new generation of games, the future of gaming looks brighter than ever. As we wait for these games to hit the market, one thing is clear — Unreal Engine 5 is set to revolutionize the gaming industry.
