Video games will never be able to achieve the much desired "photorealism“? It is certainly one of the most recurring questions among players, and given the enormous progress made in the technological field, this goal does not seem completely unattainable, especially after seeing the new one at work. U. According to Quentin Staes-Polet, General Manager, India and SEA of epic Games, the next graphic engine will allow us to "chase" this very high level of quality, from a graphic point of view, and make the titles as similar as possible to reality. We report in detail what was declared to the Indian Express microphones:
We are chasing photorealism with Unreal Engine 5. The new engine will save a lot of time and, at the same time, bring us closer to simulating reality.
With UE 5, you will be able to tap into 3D resources in 4K, and plug them into the engine so they are found and work with them. This is a huge change, as you can save a lot of time and most importantly, it will bring video games to photorealism.
Surely the words of Quentin Staes-Polet are reflected in the highly appreciated tech demo "Lumen in the Land of Nanite”, Shown last May 13 on PlayStation 5, therefore it will be interesting to find out how the various software houses will be able to exploit the enormous power of the new graphic engine of epic Games.
