YouTuber PredCaliber, known for his amazing The Elder Scrolls: Skyrim mod tutorials and graphics showcases, has brought us an absolutely stunning demonstration of a forest environment running in Unreal Engine 5.
Previously shown last year, Unreal Engine 5 looks to shake up game and graphics development with state of the art, cutting edge features from Epic’s talented team. Using UE5’s Nanite engine for generating procedural graphics and meshes, to Lumen, their path-tracing lighting system, this demonstration shows how life-like graphics are able to become on UE5.
We can not only see Nanite’s impressive capacity to render massive amounts of objects and mesh on screen with ease, but in some shots we’re able to see the beautiful path-tracing light and shadows – a form of rendering real time lighting similar to ray tracing.
Epic has announced that Unreal Engine 5 will be free to license, so judging by this immersive demonstration, we can only imagine what lies ahead for developers who take advantage of the popular engine.
