Unreal Engine 5 Announced By Epic Games, Boasts The Ability To Deliver Graphics On-Par With Real Life

Epic Games is known worldwide for the creation and huge financial success of Fortnite, the most popular free game in the world. But he is also known for creating the Unreal Engine, a game engine known for its versatility and its ability to create 3D graphics.

Unreal Engine, in all its forms, offers a vast and rather impressive list of games and movies that use it, from Outer Worlds to Surf’s Up. Even Disney Mandolorian uses it in its production.

About 200 games and movies use a version of Unreal Engine in a way, form or fashion, so the announcement of Epic Games on Unreal Engine 5 was greeted with enthusiasm and anticipation. Unreal Engine 5 Announced By Epic Games, Boasts The Ability To Deliver Graphics On-Par With Real Life
