Unreal Engine 5

Unreal Engine 5 is the latest evolution of Unreal Engine, which comes in handy just in time with some "unreal" features like Nanite, Lumen, Virtual Shadow Maps, and World Partition, to name a few.

  • Nanite is UE5’s new virtualized geometry system that enables you to create games and worlds with massive amounts of geometric detail.

  • Lumen is UE5's new fully dynamic global illumination and reflections system

  • Virtual Shadow Maps are specifically designed to work well with highly detailed film-quality Nanite assets and large, dynamically lit open worlds.

  • World Partition is a distance-based streaming solution. It greatly simplifies the large-world creation process by changing how levels are managed and streamed, automatically dividing the world into a grid and streaming the necessary cells.
