It is already known that Epic Games will offer a new engine to develop video games and various types of animations and programs, called Unreal Engine 5, the new version of Unreal Engine 4. This tool was officially released with a demo that was running on PlayStation 5, which also showcased the demonstration of the power of the Sony console. However, Unreal Engine will have support for multiple platforms, including Xbox Series X and today it was reported that the new Ninja Theory project will use this technology.
Remember the first trailer for Senua’s Saga: Hellblade II, which was shown at The Game Awards 2019? Well, at that time we did not know about Unreal Engine 5, but as it turns out, we had already seen it in action through cinematic sequences, since everything we saw in that trailer was captured from the new Epic Games engine, according to information Microsoft revealed today.
In the post, the company mentions that the development team has been working on Senua’s Saga: Hellblade II with the power of Unreal Engine 5 in conjunction with the power of the Xbox Series X.
“The power of Xbox Series X was first demonstrated with the unveiling of Senua’s Saga: Hellblade II. The team will be building the game on Unreal 5 and leveraging the power of Xbox Series X to bring the Hellblade franchise to levels never before seen. The footage shown was captured in-engine and reflects the power of Xbox Series X available to developers to deliver new universes, experiences and games in ways you have never imagined,” the statement read.
We remind you that Senua’s Saga: Hellblade II will also come to PC through Windows 10, so you can enjoy the power of Unreal Engine 5 for the first time thanks to this title.
Senua’s Saga: Hellblade II does not yet have a release date, but will be available on Xbox One, Xbox Series X and PC.
