There is no doubt that since the Unreal Engine 5 was showcased that we were not going to start seeing some titles coming along for it in short order. Most of which have seemed to be tech demos or something along those lines, but it looks like Ashes Of Creation will be heading right down that path by getting the full upgrade down the line. When that will be is still anyone's guess, as Intrepid Studios just made the announcement that work has started. Just know that Ashes Of Creation will be getting the UE5 overhaul down the line and we can get a short look at just how it could pan out on our PC.
It is still going to be a bit of time before the entire world of Ashes Of Creation is ready to explore, but it looks like some strides have begun. It does feel like we are seeing more in terms of the lighting and particle effects in the world over raw graphical output as other demos or showcases have done. Ashes Of Creation is an MMO after all, so it makes sense that we would not be seeing the photorealist visuals here. It just feels like if the UE5 tag at the beginning of the video was not there, we really would not have that feel for the next-gen engine that has so many heads turning right now. Have a look and see if you agree with that for now.
