Epic’s Unreal Engine has always remained at the forefront of rendering techniques, post-processing effects, and other graphical jargon for decades at this point now. And unsurprisingly, its latest iteration Unreal Engine 5 isn’t any different. From Nanite to photogrammetry to Lumen lighting, Unreal Engine 5 is chock-full of cutting-edge graphical features that will undoubtedly provide experiences never before seen in gaming. With the engine now being available to developers, many games are being developed on this technology – and today, we will be looking at a few such examples.
The Next Witcher Game
CDPR will be shifting from its in-house REDEngine to Epic’s Unreal Engine 5 for the next entry in The Witcher franchise. While details on the game remain almost non-existent for now, we do know that the developer switched engines for the vast array of tools available in Unreal Engine 5 that should help in crafting a lifelike open world. And with the numerous streaming and pop-in issues seen in the studio’s latest release Cyberpunk 2077, we think this shift might just be for the best.
