After knowing that many new games like Avowed, Senua’s Saga: Hellblade 2 or State of Decay 3 were developed using Unreal Engine 5, today we have the opportunity to learn more about the capabilities of the engine’s blueprint. Watch out, it’s awesome!
Diverse biomes with great graphics
For several years, Epic Games has promoted its graphics engine very widely. Ads, free use, free assets, ease of use, and technical prowess have made this engine one of the great references to graphics engines that is cut-out for everyone.
With the implementation of the Quixel library in 2020 that makes it easy to get a large amount of high-quality assets, more artists are starting to experiment with the engine. Unreal Engine 5 was recently released to the general public, but awesome videos are already starting to go viral on Youtube.
This new artist-created demo takes us to different lands with a wide variety of graphic styles. Whatever the environment on display, one can only be excited when seeing such grandiose panoramas. If the first technical sections of the new engine cared about the lack of artistic direction, now we can see its full potential.
The artists behind this project set a challenge for themselves: to create a coherent world, graphically luxurious and in real time. The most impressive fact is that each of these environments was created individually within 3 days and by only 3 people. All that remains is to wait for the big games to take full advantage of them again! In April, we learned that at least 8 Xbox studios are working on Unreal Engine 5.
Finally, let’s remember that these videos are “only” originals accompanied by nice lighting and other display techniques, but this in no way reflects the complexity of a video game that must also manage many things dynamically. Such as characters, physics, artificial intelligence, tasks and other unexpected events.
