This week, something very “epic” was revealed – something that will totally change how most games will perform and look in the near future on current and next gen platforms.
Yes, we’re talking about Unreal Engine 5. Remember when Unreal wasn’t an engine and was just a game? Wew. Time flies! I can already imagine some old gamers (boomers?) talking about it… “In our time we used to PLAY Unreal.”
Anyhoo, let’s take a dive into what’s changed and how it will affect anything we know.
Here’s an in-depth look at “Lumen in the Land of Nanite” – a real-time demonstration running live on PlayStation 5 showcasing two new core technologies that will debut in UE5: Nanite virtualized micropolygon geometry, which frees artists to create as much geometric detail as the eye can see, and Lumen, a fully dynamic global illumination solution that immediately reacts to scene and light changes.
The video basically explains everything you need to know, but for the non-technical people out there, it means that the designers have WAY MORE control over what they want to create without having to worry about it not working/taking the load, hence create even better visually appealing and realistic models that won’t be taxing.
Not just that, their creativity won’t be hindered and a whole new level of gaming will arise, very soon.
Thanks so much for reading through and have an amazing weekend!

Okay, so first thing’s first, we need to make it clear that the Playstation 5 is actually not a rumor but a REAL thing that will be released this year, even though the design/controller hasn’t been revealed or seen officially. (Yet).
In other news, the controller will be revealed during the first quarter of this year and the pre-orders will start shortly after – and you bet your bottom dollar that it is going to be a better investment than PS4 Pro.
Sony Interactive Entertainment (SIE) will launch PlayStation®5 (PS5™) in several countries in the holiday season of 2020 and will make PlayStation®5 (PS5™) available in North America on November 20, 2020 at a recommended retail price (RRP) of $499 .
Since the PS4 Pro costs around $399 approximately at the moment, it is totally worth it to wait and spend a hundred bucks extra for a LOT of reasons!
SPECS – PS5
GPU: Custom AMD Navi – capable of ray tracing!
CPU: 8-core AMD Ryzen, 7nm Zen 2
Optical: 4K Blu Ray media player
Visuals: Native 4K 120Hz + 8K TV Support
Backwards compatibility with PS4 games and PSVR hardware
Using SSD and the powerful AMD GPU, the install sizes and times will significantly reduce and also the loading times – no more WAITING! It’s an upgrade that was long overdue and honestly, it’s 2020. C’mon. We can’t be using an HDD for gaming now.
About the controller and it’s design – not much is known at the moment, not even an official name… Although it will be announced by March. We can hardly wait.
This console packs a LOT of power and will be a good competition for other consoles and well, the PC Master race as well! 8k TV support? Hell yeah!
So, sit back, relax, and just wait – it’s not too long for the Playstation 5 to come out and boy oh boy, it’s gonna be EPIC!
