PS5 gameplay FINALLY revealed: Unbelievable Unreal Engine 5 demo showcases next-gen

The first actual PS5 gameplay footage has finally been revealed by Epic Games.

The new PS5 gameplay showcases the stunning capabilities of the next-gen PlayStation hardware.

It’s all possible due to the efforts of Epic Games and its brand new Unreal Engine 5.

As you can see from the video below, the technology allows for unbelievable levels of detail, particularly when when it comes to background scenery.

The only downside is that the Lumen in the Land of Nanite demo – which is shown in the video – isn’t for an actual game.

Instead, this is purely a showcase of what the PS5 will be capable of when it launches in late 2020.

Epic explains more: “Join Technical Director of Graphics Brian Karis and Special Projects Art Director Jerome Platteaux (filmed in March 2020) for an in-depth look at “Lumen in the Land of Nanite” – a real-time demonstration running live on PlayStation 5 showcasing two new core technologies that will debut in UE5: Nanite virtualized micropolygon geometry, which frees artists to create as much geometric detail as the eye can see, and Lumen, a fully dynamic global illumination solution that immediately reacts to scene and light changes.”

The Unreal Engine 5 will be available to preview for developers in early 2021.

It will be compatible with PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X, PC, PS4, Xbox One, iOS, Android and Mac.

“Unreal Engine 5 empowers artists to achieve unprecedented levels of detail and interactivity, and brings these capabilities within practical reach of teams of all sizes through highly productive tools and content libraries,” Epic continues.

“Also present in the demo are next-gen features already available in Unreal Engine 4.25, such as Niagara VFX improvements, Chaos physics and destruction, animation system enhancements, and audio advancements. Unreal Engine 4.25 also includes support for next-gen consoles.”
