The tech demo, "Lumen in the Land of Nanite," is not meant to represent what PS5 and Xbox Series X games will necessarily look like, but instead what Unreal Engine 5 is technically capable of allowing for. These stills are very impressive-looking, and it'll be interesting to see how developers make use of the Unreal Engine 5 tech to power their new games.

Unreal Engine 5 will become available in a preview at the beginning of 2021, with a full release scheduled for later in the year. The existing Unreal Engine 4 also supports PS5 and Xbox Series X games.

Epic's own game, the battle royale title Fortnite, will be a launch game for PS5 and Xbox Series X. It will be among the first games to use Unreal Engine 5, but the transition to the new engine won't happen until 2021.
