Unreal Engine 5 Gets Impressive New Tech Demo (VIDEO)
Technology is incredible and as each new advancement arrives, avid users continue to see experiences only previously imagined in science fiction. When it comes to entertainment, new breakthroughs in animation and visual effects engines make the on-screen worlds have progressed to look and feel like the viewer is seeing a tangible experience. Epic Games’ Unreal Engine has been a pioneer in the world of game engines, bringing the technology to a wide array of creators, and with Unreal Engine 5, of course, even more advancements have been made. The developers for the fantastic engine have released a new video showing off a ton of new tools users can harness to create some incredible new content.
The trailer also marks the release of Unreal Engine 5 into Early Access allowing creators to test out the new tools for themselves as Epic continues working to tweak the engine for its full release. At its core, the new engine utilizes a handful of new rendering technologies like Nanite, a virtualized micropolygon geometry, that allow creators a lot more freedom and ease when creating breathtaking, fully realized worlds. To demonstrate the engine’s capabilities, a group of creators built a new tech demo, and, dare we say, it’s quite Epic.
The demo video also shows off new technology dedicated to managing the content within a project, from various assets skins, and more, to tools that allow one to quickly and accurately work on features like character interaction with worlds and objects, without creating excess effort in the process. This allows devs to create more awe-inspiring content and focus on the more imaginative side of development rather than spending disgusting amounts of time on the technical side. This goes as far as UE5’s animation as well as its “metasounds” that mesh together to establish a new layer of realism to scenes.
Unreal Engine 5 doesn’t have an official release date quite yet but the tool is now available for free in Early Access, which is likely good enough to get developers to feel a certain type of way for now.
