However, the most interesting part of the call will be released later. After discussing the new presentation, it will show the new presentation The Nanite and Lumen systems inherent in Unreal Engine 5, Tim Sweeney wants to comment on the combination of Unreal Engine 5 and next-generation hardware.
"Sony's storage system is absolutely world-class," Sweeney said. "Not only the best of its kind on the console, but also the best of its kind on any platform. Better than a high-end PC."
Based on this statement, Sweeney further explained the possibility of implementing this storage system. He said: "The world of loading screens is over." "As you browse through the game environment, the era of geometric figures is over."
Bold, but Sweeney firmly believes that as we enter the next generation of video game hardware, UE5 will change the development pattern. He said: "The resulting effect is to be able to build a fully immersive game from start to finish, and it takes hundreds of hours of game time."
