Unreal Engine 5 Released!

Unreal Engine 5 Available in Early Access!

Unreal Engine 5 is now available to download as an early access, pre-production version. Be ready to download over 100GB for the tool and demo content!

I can’t wait to see the games that will be built with this technology over the next few years. The Nanite and Lumen tech is quite mind boggling to name just a few of the capabilities.

To download the new tool, restart your Epic Launcher and go to the Unreal Engine tab.

Hub Bandwidth Usage Holding Steady

Unreal Carnage Dallas Hub bandwidth usage has managed to stay well over the 250GB usage per month since December.

This is quite surprising given the amount of games out there competing for players time. The arrival of Apex Legends had very little effect for example.

It’s quite likely at this point that if Epic ever came back to UT that it would not involve the current iteration. It is now almost two years behind the latest Unreal Engine version not to mention that the team that worked on this version would most likely not be re-formed.

One thing is for sure – Epic won’t make another UT if there’s nobody interested in it so keep jumping on the hub people 😀.

Preview of Reworked DM-Erase

Flikswich has posted a video of a substantially reworked DM-Erase. Time will tell if it captures lightning in a bottle like the first version did…

Sounds like a link will be available soon – stay tuned for hub availability.
