WOW! That looks insane! Mostly because of the amount of triangles and lighting, but even more so considering none of those models had heightmaps and LOD’s configured… Colour me impressed!

Some more detail added in the blog below. A big deal for smaller devs: the engine license is waived up to the first $1 million in revenue! Thats pretty big!

Also, no EGS exclusivity required :smiley: Haha!

Magical Lara looks like quite a cool game concept :smile:

The sense of speed in the gliding section at the end was pretty impressive. Once again, amazing graphics. I wonder if Lumen will depend on Ray Tracing?

I kept getting vibes from those virtual stage demos they used in The Mandalorian. Very realistic lighting and textures.

hellblade 2 might be built on UE5 looking at the trailer detail and this tweet

But didn’t they use Unreal Engine for The Mandalorian?

Yip, they did, hence the reference. Those virtual sets will just get better (as if it needs to)
