Today, we’re gonna talk about 15 New Games that will be made in the new next-gen game-making toolset or engine known as Unreal Engine 5.
Now, there have been some really exciting advancements in game-making and graphical technologies, so we wanted to highlight some and just note, that we’re not gonna hit on games that we haven’t really seen yet.
Like, we know a new “Tomb Raider” And a new “Witcher” game have been both announced to be Unreal 5, but we haven’t actually seen them yet.
List of 15 New Unreal Engine 5 Games
Let’s get started off with number 15 and talk about “Project M”
This is a big, seemingly expensive-looking project from NCSOFT, a pretty big publisher with a decent track record, but this seems a little bit different for them.
This is kind of a narrative-driven, movie-like adventure, similar to something like a “Heavy Rain”, Quantic Dream “Detroit: Become Human” style game.
From what we’ve seen, it looks to have decisions And quick time events and your decisions and actions will actually change the shape of the story and the ending.
Now, from what we really know so far, all we got to really go on is it’s like a revenge quest after a man loses a loved one, like a girlfriend or a wife or something.
Sounds pretty basic, yeah, sure, but there’s gotta be more to it.
There’s gotta be a reason that they’re telling this story with these crazy video game graphics.
My money is on the voice actors And the performance capture because the characters look incredibly lifelike, so if they can really sell emotion in this story, I’m all in.
It doesn’t have a release date yet, but it is looking really gorgeous, I mean, look at it.
Kingdom Hearts 4
On the list of upcoming Unreal Engine 5 games at number 14, we have “Kingdom Hearts 4”
Yes, announced earlier this year, we’re probably not going to hear much about “Kingdom Hearts 4” for a while, but they did show us quite a bit, including what seemed to be real-time gameplay.
Now, this is interesting because it takes place after the events of “Kingdom Hearts 3”, where Sora is in a new world called the Quadratum, and it’s kind of like a lifelike, more realistic-looking city.
So with that, they have to play Sora in a real-looking world and it has to look damn good and it had to have a game engine to really back it up.
So it seems like UnrealEngine 5 is really powering these massive, life-like cities, and I say massive because just the small glimpses we’ve seen and the large boss enemy and Sora flying into the world seems like it’s gonna be a pretty dense and detailed world.
Interestingly enough, with”Kingdom Hearts 4″ more than any other game on this list, I’m not really looking for realistic graphics, I’m just looking for fun gameplay and cool “Kingdom Hearts” stuff, so, hopefully, seemingly we’re still gonna get that, but at the very least, baseline, if we don’t know too much about it yet, at least we know it’s gonna be pretty.
Next over at number 13, We have a game called “ILL”
Now, this looks like more of an independent project, it’s been in the works for quite some time now and they’ve been teasing it with a lot of very brief glimpses of gameplay, some of it looking a little wonky, but the more we see it, the more it’s shaping up to be pretty interesting.
It even made an appearance at the GamesRadar game showcase, and it’s straight-up horror first-person shooter that looks really good, and the coolest part is the monsters themselves.
They seem incredibly detailed, like hyper grotesque, with tons of gross drippy bits and tendrils coming from every inch of them, kind of like a cross between the Birkin monster from “Resident Evil 2” and something out of the classic “The Thing” movie, but like turned up to 11, so, that right there is pretty awesome.
Considering they look this visually scary and freaky, thanks to the graphics, I just really hope that it has the gameplay chops to back it up.
But so far the more and more we see of it, as I said, it does look better and better.
On the list of 15 New Unreal Engine 5 Games at number 12, We have “The Invincible”
This is a first-person space exploration adventure-style game with a story focus that’s a little bit different in style.
It’s more of chunkier space sci-fi, it’s a little more old school and that really makes it appealing.
Along with that, it does seem like it’s taking advantage of Unreal Engine’s new lighting stuff and photogrammetry, with the desert planet-like environments that we have seen looking incredibly real.
The rock faces, the sand, all of it looks stunning.
Pair that down with the tiniest details on the player character’s hands and detailed, cool sci-fi equipment, it seems like it’s gonna be a bit of a different experience.
“TheInvincible” is seemingly focused around a deep, like, legitimate sci-fi story and I mean that you playas an astrobiologist, you don’t play as like a badass space marine or anything, so it’s definitely got the graphical things going for it, but it also seems like it has the story and gameplay ambitions to back it up.
Layers of Fears
Next, over at number 11, we have “Layers of Fears”
Admittedly I don’t know too much about but we do know that it’s a sort of combo collection slash updated version of the original two “Layers of Fear” games in one package and now completely in UnrealEngine 5, which is pretty sweet because “Layers of Fear” is really underrated.
It’s not the most action-packed horror game or anything but it is certainly a hell of an experience, so for them to redo it in Unreal Engine 5 and hopefully add some new content, can be really enticing.
Those games already really did rely on great art direction and cool graphics, so for them to step it up, I think that’s pretty exciting.
We know “Layers of Fears”, which I’m still getting used to saying is coming sometime in early 2023.
On the list of 15 New Unreal Engine 5 Games at number 10, we have “Red fall”
This is “Dishonored” developers, Arkane’s newest game, and it’s a four-player multiplayer cooperative shooter where you’re taking down hordes of vampires that have invaded a small New England town.
Most importantly, for me as a solo gamer, You’ll also be able to play this completely solo, but playing with friends means everybody has different abilities and you can take advantage and just basically do cool Arkane, “DeathLoop”, “Dishonored” style trick shots and cool moves.
Really curious to see where this one goes, and graphically, it does look pretty damn great.
The art style’s a bit more cartoonish, so on the surface, it’s a little trickier to see the real graphical fidelity because things intentionally don’t look hyperrealistic, But still, from what we’ve seen visually, it does look really impressive.
I’m still curious to see how this one actually going to play and how fun it’s gonna be, but it does look cool from a design standpoint, and hopefully, we’ll finally be playing that pretty soon.
The Day Before
Now next over on the list of 15 New Unreal Engine 5 Games at number nine, we have “The Day Before”
We’ve talked about this one for quite a while. This is the super ambitious MMORPG that’s like a combination of “The Last of Us” And “Days Gone”, but also “The Division”, with open-world city stuff, fighting, looting, PVE, PVP, zombies, customization, and incredibly killer graphics.
That’s a lot to promise and it seems like it’s coming from a small developer and they’ve since really delayed the game pretty heavily, so we don’t know what’s up, but what we initially saw of this game did excite us, even if it was a small slice and it’s still got a ways to go if it can come out like what we’ve seen visually, And with all those promised gameplay features, it could be sick.
We’ll probably be talking about “The Day Before” soon, you know, we still have some skepticism, but yeah, there you go.
Hell is Us
Next over at number eight, we have a game called “Hell is Us”
Now this is published by Nacon and developed by Rogue Factor, and to be completely frank, we don’t know too much about it other than it’s going to be pretty.
We got a brief teaser trailer That showed some cool ideas that gave us some slight “Control” vibes, and it’s seemingly going to tell a pretty mature story.
As I said, we don’t know too much, so I’ll just read the official game’s description.
“Amidst a secluded country, ravaged by civil war, discover the secrets of your past and confront the mysterious calamity that has befallen the region.”
A real adventure awaits you, where you will explore the dark side of human nature.
Well, I guess from reading the game’s description, It turns out hell was us all along.
I’m sorry, terrible joke, but all we know right now is that it is coming to PS5 in 2023.
On the list of 15 New Unreal Engine 5 Games at number seven, we have “Ark 2”
A game that has been announced and then kind of announced again, and we still don’t know too much, other than that it’s gonna be Unreal Engine 5 and Vin Diesel is in it.
Not only is he in it, but he’s also apparently working behind the scenes with the production crew and is going to be fairly involved with the game.
You know, celebrities are gonna celebrity, but ultimately this seems like it’s gonna be a bigger better “Ark”, and hopefully, a prettier and less glitchy, weird, messed up one, or really, to be honest, sometimes that weird goofy jankiness isall the fun with “Ark”, right? As of right now, we know”Ark 2″ is coming in 2023.
Black Myth: Wukong
Next over at number six, we have “Black Myth: Wukong”
Now we’ve talked about this game quite a bit for quite some time now, and are hoping we finally see it At the end of 2022 or sometime in 2023, because this Chinese-developed action adventure RPG, based specifically around ancient Chinese mythology looks pretty sweet.
Obviously, you’ve probably heard it before, it seems very “Souls” inspired, but the unique twist on lore and just some of the combat actions and boss battles we have seen have been pretty nuts also, shout out to the developers for just showing straight up gameplay and not really wasting our time with too many cinematic trailers because seeing the game In motion in Unreal Engine5 is incredibly impressive. I mean, look at this thing.
Again, at this point, I don’t know what more I can really say other than that, the detail, especially when the character moves in the snow or the water, the way wind rushes and moves things in the environment just how fast and frenetic the combat is, with sparks flying and not a thing slowing down.
We really hope this game looks as good as it seems here when it finally drops.
On the list of 15 New Unreal Engine 5 Games at number five, we have a game called “Quantum Error”
Now you may not have heard of this one but this is a PS5 game built a cosmic horror FPS TPS.
There are some seemingly cool story elements to the game, but essentially, a quantum research facility is attacked, it’s on fire and you go in as a firefighter and your job is to just save as many lives from the burning lab as possible and just get out.
Then, of course, things devolve into chaos and it gets spooky and weird and sci-fi.
That’s really it, and while on the surface it sounds a little bit generic, I think the firefighter’s pin is actually pretty cool and unique.
The visual style is also isn’t quite what you’d expect, it’s got a bit of a flat, kind of artistic style to it.
They’re not going for hyperreal, but still seemingly are taking advantage of the Unreal Engine with cool lighting and fire.
But to be honest, we don know too much about it. It just seems like a really, really cool idea.
As of right now, we just know it’s coming soon to the PS5.
Next over on the list of 15 New Unreal Engine 5 Games at number four, We have a game called “Instinction”
Now, just when you thought we had too many dinosaur games, we got one more, but thankfully, this one looks pretty damn good, at least graphically.
This is billed as a prehistoric action-adventure game with combat and exploration in multiple environments but it’s from a first-person perspective and you have guns.
So yes, it’s you chasing down velociraptors in the jungle with an assault rifle, fighting saber-toothed tigers, and big dinosaurs.
The concept seems really simple and maybe goofy to some, but also just good, dumb, and fun.
And from what we’ve seen graphically, from water areas to dense jungle areas, both during the day and at night, seems pretty cool.
The environments are incredible downright shockingly richly detailed.
Along with that, just really detailed dinosaurs that can be outright terrifying.
I wish this one had a release date, as of right now, it’s just slated as TBA, but it looks damn cool.
On the list of 15 New Unreal Engine 5 Games at number three, we have a game called “Wronged Us”.
It seems like it takes a lot of cues from something like “Silent Hill”, and it also just embraces a lot of horror movies with little nods here and there, but visually from like an art direction standpoint, at times it can look downright stunning.
Other times it can look not so great and really, really rough and seemingly made by one person.
So, this one is still really up in the air, but from some of those good glimpses that actually look really damn good, you’ll see snippets of it here, we see some potential.
It was last shown off at a GamesRadar game reveal live stream thing in 2021 as part of a larger event, but like, we haven’t really seen anything since, but we’re keeping our eye out on it.
S.T.A.L.K.E.R.2: Heart of Chornobyl
Now down at number two, we have “S.T.A.L.K.E.R.2: Heart of Chornobyl”
This one has been taking a long time. “S.T.A.L.K.E.R.” fans have been waiting for something forever and they’re gonna have to wait a little bit longer with this one, but from what we’ve seen, it looks downright incredible.
Exploring a post-apocalyptic landscape with this Eastern European spin definitely seems right up our alley, it certainly was with the old games, which were incredibly unique, just genre-defining PC gaming moments.
I don’t know if this new game has the potential to like literally change everything in gaming, at least for some players, but it does look like it’s going to be a hell of a cool adventure with some incredible visuals.
We’ve seen all kinds of different scenes.
They’ve been showing off the work they’ve specifically been doing in Unreal Engine 5 since the work commenced on this game and we’ve been really, really excited.
Hopefully, we finally get to play real soon.
Senua’s Saga: Hellblade II
Now next at number one, we have “Senua’s Saga: Hellblade II”
The last time we got to see this game, it looked downright incredible.
When it was first announced, It was one of the big things really tout the power of the Xbox Series X and just next-generation technology, but really Unreal Engine 5 as well, and the most recent gameplay trailer that we got showed large enemy types, massive action, chaos, just full gameplay, it seems absolutely nuts.
From the detailed lighting and character faces to the performances of the characters themselves, of course, which was the highlight of the last game, to the rain, the mud, and the fire, everything in this gameplay demo was firing on all cylinders.
They knew exactly what they were doing.
They were flexing on us with this one.
If you played the first game, you know that game was more story and emotion-focused and now it’s finally got, hopefully, some gameplay and graphic stuff to really back it up.
Because you know, the first game’s combat was pretty cool but hopefully, they really blow it out here.
Either way, it looks absolutely stunning and we can’t wait to hear more about it soon, cuz it still doesn’t have a release date, but take your time guys, we’ll wait.
So those are 15 New Unreal Engine 5 games that we think to look pretty cool and we hope we see soon. That’s really it.
We just wanted to talk about some cool games today. So we wanna know from you guys in the comments, what you’re thinking? If you got your own top five or like one specific game you’re really looking forward to on this list, let us know.
Also, there are a lot of games on this list that still have a lot of unanswered questions, so we’d like to know what you’re thinking there.
