One of the Unreal Engine’s focus areas is to create capabilities to help game developers develop high-quality immersive games in a significantly more straightforward manner.
Facilitating the development of immersive games is what Epic Games is looking to achieve with the latest Unreal Engine version. Epic Games released Unreal Engine 5 earlier in 2020. Unreal Engine 5 comes with a real-time gameplay demo, which can be viewed on PlayStation 5.
“One of the core goals of the Unreal Engine is to develop features that make the creation of high-quality 3D content much simpler. To create compelling virtual worlds across all kinds of consumer hardware ranging from phones to upcoming new consoles, more high-end 3D content that can ‘scale’ is needed.” – says Epic Games’ product director Arjan Brussee.
Among Unreal Engine’s future capabilities to make game development more efficient for developers is Nanite’s virtualized micro polygon geometry. It will provide substantial visual quality improvements via improved polygon detail. The Engine is also now equipped with more built-in animation tools like Full Body IK and Control Rig to develop complicated animation much faster.
