PS5 fans hope the Unreal Engine 5 demo is a look into the future

Epic Games is outstanding The Matrix is ​​waking up The technology demo has already given us a taste of what we can expect from Unreal Engine 5 on the PS5, but this viral video is pulsing on social media. The clip, based on an actual Japanese train station, was posted at Art Station earlier in the week and has been shared thousands of times since.

It’s worth noting that this isn’t actually done in real time – it’s rendered at about seven frames per second and then accelerated. Although the creator admits that it is possible to run it in real time, the image quality is great. However, they acknowledge that further optimization could result in improved performance.

Still, the thing to take away is how photorealistic everything looks. The description of the video explains: “The environment works in Unreal Engine 5, illuminated by Lumen. I didn’t use Nanite. I worked on modeling, texturing, lighting and animation for this video. The only exception is the leaves, which are from Quixel Megascans. ”

It’s really quite impressive, and with a bunch of Sony teams working with Unreal Engine 5 – including ones like Haven Studios – we’re guaranteed to be in the thick of it as the generation matures.
