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.
Explore the future of gaming with upcoming Unreal Engine 5 games. Discover how this groundbreaking engine is shaping next-gen titles across various genres, from stealth survival in 'Nakwon: Last Paradise' to action-packed adventures.
From GameWatcher: "Starbreeze has licensed the Dungeons & Dragons IP from Wizards of the Coast to work on a video game it codenamed internally as Project Baxter, which will be developed using Unreal Engine 5.
Project Baxter is currently estimated to be released sometime in 2026, and will likely be developed for PC, PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series X."
