The Summer Game Fest has been a mixed bag so far as while Inside Xbox disappointed with Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, Activision’s remake of Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater was a wonderful surprise meanwhile yesterday’s Unreal Engine 5 tech demo wowed most people across the globe. In fact, it wowed people so much that some Sony loyalists are even wondering whether the Lumen in the Land of Nanite will become a real playable game on PS5.
As you probably couldn’t stop hearing from Geoff Keighley himself and excited gamers all over Twitter, yesterday’s Unreal Engine 5 tech demo allowed people to see stunning gameplay running on the PlayStation 5 itself. While some have used its beauty to try to score brownie points over the Xbox Series X, these battling console warmongers should be reminded that the graphics engine will be on Microsoft’s next-gen system as well.
However, away from its beauty, some people fell in love with the tech demo’s aesthetics and are thus wondering whether Lumen in the Land of Nanite will become an actual game to be played.
Unreal Engine 5 tech demo: Is Lumen in the Land of Nanite a game?
Lumen in the Land of Nanite is not a game in-development for PS5 as it was just a tech demo for Unreal Engine 5.
Similar to the Unreal Engine 4 Infiltrator PS4 demo back in 2013, Lumen in the Land of Nanite is a not a game but just a demonstration (albeit playable) of Unreal Engine 5’s potential.
It undoubtedly looked beautiful and a lot of gamers and outlets have understandably become excited thanks to what it potentially means for next-gen prowess.
However, while lots of people have rewatched the demo way too many times, there are some who have taken the time to justifiably remind people that it is just a marketing tool that won’t become a reality in genuine games for awhile.
Not to mention people were disappointed seeing elements such as crawling through tight spaces to hide loading screens, and the gameplay itself wasn’t anything next level or special as everything shown was very much Tomb Raider.
