Epic Games shows off Unreal Engine 5 demo on PlayStation 5

What seemed to initially be prepared for the cancelled Game Developer’s Conference, Epic Games partnered with The Game Awards founder Geoff Keighley to introduce Unreal Engine 5 as part of the Summer Game Fest.

In a live stream on The Game Awards YouTube and Twitch channels, Epic Games’ technical director of graphics, Brian Karis, and special projects art director, Jerome Platteaux, shared a tech demo that played on a PlayStation 5 that showed off Unreal Engine 5’s two new technologies: Nanite virtualized micropolygon geometry, which allows artists to improve details, and Lumen, a new light technology that reacts to scene and light changes.
