PS5 received recently even more praise from the developers of Fortnite (probably the console’s biggest fans).
According to Epic Games, Sony’s next-gen console is going to be the best gaming console ever made. The company previously stated that the PS5 could outperform most gaming PCs thanks to its ambitious features. Now, Epic is at it again, saying that the next-gen console is a truly “masterpiece of systems design.” Here is what you should know.
PS5 Will Arrive With New Gameplay Concepts
Epic Games’ recent statement about the PS5’s features comes from the Official PlayStation Magazine. Nick Penwarden, the VP of Epic Games, stated: “It is revolutionary [the console] in terms of storage and data compression technology, unlocking new kinds of games and experiences for players to enjoy.” Once again, the PS5’s SSD receives a lot of praise, as it could result in entirely new kinds of games.
Kim Libreri, Epic Games’ CTO, also expressed his feelings towards PS5’s features. He said: “[…] entirely new gameplay concepts that can take advantage of fully dynamic environments and lighting, much-improved physics, smarter AI and richer multiplayer experiences.”
Epic’s Unreal Engine is now available on every modern platform. There’s no indication that it will work better on a PS5 than on an Xbox Series X or a steady gaming PC. However, Epic developers and executives have signed out Sony’s next-gen console again and again when talking about the Unreal Engine’s last improvements. And maybe they’re right – they’ve tried the system, after all – but it does raise some questions about what the PS5 can do.
In any case, Sony’s next-gen does seem to be a mighty console, and we know that Epic’s major hit Fortnite will be available on the platform. Epic was also privileged to present the first PS5 gameplay, with its tech demo Lumen in the Land of Nanite.
