Epic Games is one of the biggest and most important companies in the video game industry. Most people probably know of Epic Games from their PC storefront or, more likely, by being the developer behind the mega-popular battle royale game, Fortnite.
The company is the mind and developer behind one of, if not, the most used video games engine, Unreal Engine. In the over 20 years that the Unreal Engine has been around, many different types of games have been able to be developed using it from a variety of developers.
With Epic Games releasing the newest version, Unreal Engine 5, earlier this week, we’re going to look into the future at 5 games that will take advantage of Unreal Engine 5.
The Next Witcher Game
With the switch to this new engine, the next Witcher game is set to be in good hands whenever it may release.
The Next Tomb Raider Game
The next game in the series was announced during the recent State of Unreal live stream and it was announced that the game would be running on Unreal Engine 5.
Senua’s Saga: Hellblade II
We first saw the gameplay of Senua’s Saga: Hellblade II during The Game Awards last year, and the game looks absolutely stunning and seems to be taking full advantage of Unreal Engine 5.
The Next Gears of War Game
With Gears 5 having the biggest launch of Microsoft’s first-party studios at the time of its release, it’s no doubt that the next game in the series will be just as big whenever it is finally announced and released.
Black Myth: Wukong
Since the game was first announced in 2020, it has exploded in popularity on YouTube with the trailers achieving multiple millions of views which is absolutely incredible for a game coming from an indie team from China.
