How’s it going, gamers? Today I want to talk to you guys about something unique that I didn’t know for a while or found out recently. Still, I thought it would be a good idea to make a video on it because it’s essential that you know this, and it’s about following-generation graphics. The first game that became a next-generation game was Fortnite. I know that may shock you guys, but Fortnite began being used in December 2021; unreal Engine five is set to come out in spring 2022; I want to let that sink in. It’s not even out yet. And Fortnite uses Unreal Engine five next-generation graphics to power the Xbox series X, PlayStation five, and other futuristic systems.

Unreal Engine five is easy for developers to work with, and it probably is an excellent choice for Fortnite since Fortnite is built on Unreal Engine and owned by Epic Games. It just seems like it’s a natural thing. But why is this important? Why exactly is this important too? Well, right now, we see the release of a lot of character packs, and those character packs are all going to be in Unreal Engine five. So, for instance, the uncharted Character Pack is coming out that will be in the Unreal Engine five system. The land and textures in Fortnite have been converted over to Unreal Engine five, and you can see the new lighting of what the next generation will look like. And sure, it may not be on par with what’s coming into the future.

But they want to showcase the engine and all that this engine can do. It’s interesting that Fortnite, ironically, is the game that is powering next-generation graphics. But how deep down the rabbit hole do we go here with Next Generation graphics? All the developers of Fortnite are at a huge advantage right now. It is being able to test out Unreal Engine five because many of the systems that I’m related to find make it even easier to produce Fortnite content. And I know that sounds crazy, but with a quick slip engine where you can drag and drop objects into the game, they are at a considerable advantage to put high-resolution textures in there to make the game look even more admirable.

They’re working on metahumans, for instance, that allow them to create characters in Fortnite easily. These types of terms and terminology are changing the way we view Fortnite in general. I know that sounds crazy. Some people may not agree with this concept. I want to tell you that Epic Games is trying to push into the next generation, and they’re giving developers the tools to create their own Fortnite. And I think that’s the great thing about what Epic Games is doing right now is they’re putting the power back in the creators.

Right now. You could get Unreal Engine five, and you could go create some amazing stuff using their engine. It’s a ton of free assets that they provide, much like Fortnite and all the characters in it, you can do the same too. And the learning curves, not too much at least to get cream movies and stuff like that. So it’s interesting that Fortnite is kind of taking the reigns and you ask yourself, so what I mean it doesn’t really next look next gen. That’s because Epic Games is testing out a lot of different stuff. The engine is not even at this time. The engine is actually still running in pre alpha or pre beta or whatever you want to call it, because it’s not out till spring 2022 And they’re able to really work these things out with Fortnite. Ironically. So if you may have some servers issues with Fortnite it could be them relatedly moving everything over to Unreal Engine five for Unreal Engine five is a very good looking engine.

We saw the matrix demo that looks amazing and real life at times. While you’re going to see this same technology power Fortnite into the future, they’re going to be able to update the game even better. This puts Epic Games at a considerable advantage, which is why Fortnite. I believe it has been successful because Epic Games owns Unreal Engine. If you didn’t know that, they could put these things together very quickly. And it’s going to be even easier for them now. They are sharing a lot of the assets to let you be able to create an Unreal Engine five, so if you want to make some stuff right now, you could actually probably you can use the environmental textures they’re using in Fortnite to create some movies or create a game of your own.

They’re not holding this tech up and hiding it from everyone. They’re allowing other people to develop because they want other people to build. This is good news for developers. And it’s good news from a graphical perspective because the tech can be looked at with the lighting system. People can share it to make stuff look better with lumen, the lighting system replacing ray tracing. It’s less intensive, so the game looks as good as if it was ray trace, which is graphically intense. So when we look at it from that perspective, we see everything come together.

Then we have the Niagra particles, which are even newer, an Unreal Engine five that bring in good particle physics that increases performance, so Fortnite’s going to end up looking a lot better from all this stuff rolling in it in a way it’s kind of weird. You almost think of Fortnite as the next crisis because it’s bringing in all this new graphical tech that will power the next generation for years to come. These engines don’t change that often. So this is very interesting to see the changes with Unreal Engine five from Unreal Engine for where we’re currently.

So be excited, guys. Fortnite is powering away so you’ve seen update in Fortnite, a character in Fortnite is actually being powered by the next generation of gaming and Unreal Engine five and many other gaming companies have said they’re going to be using Unreal Engine five from here on out, because it’s a lot easier to developer to develop it.

So even the big companies are looking at this, not indie companies. Still, you can expect a lot of indie developers to pop up creating games even similar to Fortnite because of the way ability to develop in the engine. So taking a look at all these incredible graphics and updating Fortnite to the next generation before anything else has allowed Epic Games to put everything together to be at the cutting edge of graphics technology.

It’ll be interesting to see how this develops in the future, but it’s an exciting time for gaming. If you liked this video, just hit that like button support. And I’ll talk to you guys later on next-gen Video Game Theory
