The Coalition will soon show us what it can do with Unreal Engine 5.
The Coalition will show Unreal Engine 5 Tech Demo at GDC 2021
The Gears of War studio, The Coalition, has revealed that at GDC 2021 in mid-July it will show a tech demo made with the Unreal Engine 5, the new version of the Epic Games graphics engine still in the Early Access phase.
The technical director Kate Rayner and the technical art director Colin Penty will be presenting the demo together. This tech demo will run on the next-gen console of Microsoft, Xbox Series X.
Over the course of the one-hour presentation, the development team will unveil what they learned by creating assets with Nanite-resolution and including them in a lighting scenario with Lumen and Virtual Shadow Maps.
The presentation will be visible from 1:20 pm CET on July 21st (in the night between July 20th and 21st), and will include many details on different aspects of Unreal Engine 5 and how it will be used on Xbox Series X/S.
They will also talk about the creation of the next-gen character thanks to the MetaHuman Creator program, also available in Early Access.
The Coalition announced in May that it had begun work on new next-gen titles using Unreal Engine 5, but it will take some time before we see what the ambitious and experienced studio has in store for us.
