Unreal Engine 5

This Unreal Engine 5 Demo Is Seriously Impressive

I feel like it’s quite hard to be truly wowed by video game graphics at this point, but with Unreal Engine 5 being used in a bunch of upcoming games, there’s good reason to be excited. Especially if this video which was created by one person is anything to go by.

A developer has just dropped a demo of a Japanese Train Station which has been totally rendered in Unreal Engine 5, and it’s really impressive. I’d almost go as far as saying that if you had a real life video of this particular train station alongside this demo then you’d struggle to be able to tell which is real life and which is running in Unreal Engine 5.

When the lights go out, things are a little bit easier to pick apart, but equally the lighting and models are just as impressive, which has me excited to see some horror games running in UE5.

Alongside the video, the developer said:

“My latest environment, freely based on a real-life train station in Toyama, Japan. The environment is running in Unreal Engine 5, lit with Lumen. I didn’t use Nanite. I worked on all modeling, texturing, lighting and animation for this video. The only exception is foliage, which is from Quixel Megascans.”

Some games that are being built on Unreal Engine 5 include Senua’s Saga: Hellblade II, the new Tomb Raider, Kingdom Hearts 4, as well as the next Witcher game.
