Epic Games provided developers with early access to Unreal Engine 5, but we have to wait for truly next-gen productions using the potential of technology. Currently, we can take a look at the photorealistic forest show, which looks very impressive.
Can't wait to see Hellblade 2 running on UE5!
Me neither. But, whoops, I shouldn't say that too loud. According to some people, the last game is just a walking simulator with the occasional fight and pretty graphics.
I didnt like the game, i played like 5 hrs and gave up, but it doesnt mean is a bad game, some people just dont like it. Theres other good games i dont like, it doesnt mean they are bad, just we all have different tastes. Now i can tell it had nice graphics, so i bet the second one would look at least great.
Yeah that’s what was said by a xbox fans when it was PS4 only and now suddenly it’s the best franchise ever
It is a walking simulator. If it wasn’t Norse based I wouldn’t have liked it at all. I wouldn’t shit on you for liking it though lol
Ever since the dev was brought in by a certain company, anyway. Seem to remember people applauding it as art that touched on a lot of important subjects. Tastes change, I guess :^)
I hope they don't stray from that too much. Sure they should improve the combat but Hellblade is not a hack and slash combat game, it is a semi-walking simulator and it should still be that IMO.
That's exactly what the Xbox community said about the game while it was exclusive to PlayStation. Then after is was available on Xbox, the same game became a masterpiece.
No it wasn't a walking simulation to me.. It odd and kind of weird. I got stuck on one of the puzzles and even with the guide it didn't let me pass. But, I will still give the next one a try. It's on gamepass so, I have nothing to lose but, download time.
Hell blade first came on PlayStation. Game was amazing. Xx but the studio who made it... Yeah it wasn't that good. I'm here to say the game was amazing. One of my favorites.
That was some peoples opinion of the last game before it came to xbox. But, whoops, I shouldn't say that too loud.
It was an average game, not best in it genre. Not sure what what hype was when the sequel was announce. Let see if a meh game would wow me with it sequel.
I have always maintained Hellblade was a decent game, even before it released on xbox. People who say a game is one thing because it is not on their platform, are quite simply loyal to plastic and nothing else, and will never admit a game looks good on a rival platform, no matter how good it actually is. I like the look of HFW, i still can not play it though, it is still a good looking game for those that can.
Hellblade 2 is gonna look great, but that’s just the first major game UE5 is used with. I can’t wait to see the games that come after it once devs have had more time with it.
I'm going to be real, I don't really think this looks much different than what Warhorse accomplished in Kingdom Come Deliverance under Cry Engine. At least in terms of the forests, themselves. I know there's a lot more going on under the hood with UE5 though.
There isn't a single grass texture in use, every single blade is individually rendered.Nothing yet has come close to this.
I'm honestly even more excited to see what The Coalition can do with this.
Laggy as heck with lots of popins and under 30FPS
What a boring game Hellblade was. I played it back when it was PS4 exclusive. Didnt play more than 5 hrs, deleted it. Anyways Xbox community can have it exclusively with a pleasure.
Cant wait ps6
This looks shithouse!, there are far better examples out there.
I feel like human brains still have a hard time with the uncanny valley. Like it looks weird to me. So close to realism yet I just know it isn't real and therefore looks worse than it actually is.
Yea, but this UE5 project looks even more realistic, sans some vegetations: https://youtu.be/0DVIicSsBm...
Wow. That is petty convincing.
SSDs this gen should help with draw distances for environments with high LoD like a jungle. Can’t wait 🤙
I don't know, i have noticed draw distance in some gameplay showings to be shorter than previous gen.
TLOU2 forests on PS4 looked on par if not better in motion.
This is actually a poor example with all the blurring going on. UE5 is legit photorealistic and mind blowing normally. Highly suggest following them on Instagram - they post a ton of examples there.
The one made in dreams looks more real, not a knock on the engine, just not a very well made forest honestly. https://youtu.be/kfA_-_TJC3...
Maybe I'm weird but I don't necessarily need games to look photorealistic. I'd take the art style of say, Ratchet and Clank Rift Apart over this any day. I'd like to see Pixar like graphics over hyper-realism. Just my personal preference.
Next gen? So when is the PS6 coming? I thought current gen could render an image like this.
Looks spectacular. Photorealistic if your vision isn't great.
Every gen we get these bull shots. Show this quality with real gameplay. Throw some enemies on the screen hell if all there was is just rendering a jungle you could have done this on last gen systems.
i agree, i mean it looks nice and all but what is the use of this if it isnt in an actual game that runs on modern hardware. I want to see if things like this are actually possible with a game running, because thats whats its going to be used for.
Hmm. It's unreal engine. Forget the rev. number, lots of games using this engine will be janky. MS, use idTech.
Cool digital art, but running a game under this kind of pressure is a bit different unless it's a walking sim.
It looks great, but it's no fun if I can't interact with it. Let me pick a single leaf off a tree or throw stones.
To be honest, this does not look that great. I expect we will see way better.
I think this tech is launching too late. It takes years to make a AAA game and this engine is still in development which means we likely won't start to see UE5 games until late current gen or early next gen unless we start to see smaller games with less development time push out titles by mid gen.
