A 9 Minute PS5 Demo Built On Unreal Engine 5 Has Dropped And It Looks Sensational

Epic has unveiled Unreal Engine 5 with a nine minute demo running in engine on PlayStation 5.

The 9 minute demo was recorded straight out of a PS5 HDMI port and features an Uncharted/Tomb Raider like tech demo with a huge amount of polygons, resulting in some of the best locations that we’ve ever seen.


Epic praised the PS5 SSD for being beyond anything that we’ve seen in even high-end PCs and say that it allows polygons to be streamed in at an instantaneous rate.

This is thanks to the new Nanite technology which Epic says film quality art to be imported into the engine with billions of polygons.

The new Lumen engine is a fully dynamic global illumination solution which results in the lighting constantly changing the tech demo as well as light bouncing off things like the puddles of water.

Unreal Engine 5 is rolling out to PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X, current gen consoles as well as iPhones and Android devices.
