With the latest Unreal Engine 5 demo, it’s almost impossible to distinguish a virtual scene from reality. Epic’s Unreal Engine 5 propels us into a new world where reality and fiction are increasingly difficult to discern. This opens up new possibilities for the creative world and for film in particular. But it also brings a lot of questions about the future of video games. Where will be from now on the part of imagination in a game? Will they still be games or just simulations?
So obviously this is a technical feat. But brought back to video games, it raises huge questions about the future of video games. Do we need to play simulators of the real world or do we need to escape from it to be with the Hylian Link to escape a little in Zelda?
