This is not good we need more different engines for next generation games

The3faces384d ago

Never a good thing when all game world's look the same.

Vits384d ago

Yeah, that is not good at all.
Epic's solution is good don't get me wrong, but this lack of variety will only hurt the industry moving forward.

Idk. One thing I hear with development is always how difficult it is working on an engine. UE is one of the most easy to work with I hear. So honestly, I want devs to have an easier time, if UE does that, then that's good. UE does also look pretty good and if there are devs out there that know how to use it well, games can look quite amazing.

Project Baxter is currently estimated to be released sometime in 2026, and will likely be developed for PC, PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series X."

Welcome but living up to Baldur's Gate 3 will be a mighty task

Different genre ... won't be a CRPG but rather a multiplayer co-op game

Magog1d 4h ago

You can do multi-player co-op in BG3 too.

Why Project Baxter though? Haha, that seems so random. That just makes me think of Anchorman with Will Ferrell.

Starbreeze's Riddick games on the original Xbox were exceptionally good. Looking forward to see what they can do with their new game.

That Starbreeze (Riddick/The Darkness) is sadly long gone. After switching engines, several key staff left for MachineGames. It's the main reason why the studio hasn't developed anything of note outside of the Payday series in years.

That's cool. My greatest wish was a big D&D game based off of the awesome cartoon that was on Saturday morning. Never happened but a fan did make a good streets of rage side scroller game on Openbor.


Playing as Hank or any of the characters with friends would have been awesome. Let's see what they do with the license.


A wealth of Unreal Engine 5 games are finally here - so how are the consoles coping?

After years of waiting, Unreal Engine 5 is finally here with a decent roster of full games to look at, beyond the tech demos and samples we had in the past. The early results have been mixed, with some titles exhibiting UE5's merits convincingly while others have been bogged down by image quality or performance problems. Yet there's one question that hasn't been answered quite as well: how well do these technologies scale to console systems? Today we're looking at the current state of Unreal Engine 5 on PS5, Series X and Series S to evaluate how the technology fares in early game efforts.

I will speak for PC and say I don't really care for UE that much as I used to. To me the best game engine developer that can probably top UE if he was still making game engines is John Carmack. I wish he would return to doing just that.


RoboCop Rogue City - DF Tech Review - Unreal Engine 5 Shines on PS5/Xbox Series X|S

A surprise to be sure - but a welcome one! RoboCop Rogue City isn't just an excellent shooter, it's one of the most accomplished uses of Unreal Engine 5 we've seen so far on consoles.

Such a good game. It has its rough spots but that is what gives it charm.

isarai21d ago

It got buggier as it neared the end for me which was weird, but it's so fun and satisfying. Also yeah the graphical quality and visual attention to detail really surprised me with this game

autobotdan20d ago

Play quietly or there will be trouble


The PS5 version again mops the floor with the series x version visually speaking with less stutters, higher frame rate, higher resolution.

UpvotedOpinions20d ago

"Performance mode targets a frame rate of 60 fps on both the PS5 and Xbox Series X. There are noticeable drops into the low 50s and even the high 40s on both consoles in demanding areas. The Xbox Series X version holds a more stable and higher frame rate compared to the PS5 version. "

And both run dynamic resolution which maxes out at 1080p :d

darthv7220d ago

"mops the floor"....... what video did you watch?

Azanar19d ago

And you watched which video that showed the PS5 had better FPS? I cant seem to find it, the one I watched said exactly the opposite.

mkis00720d ago

Enjoying it, still mad thr auto 9 sound isnt right.
