TOP 6 INSANE Unreal Engine 5 Games Coming in 2022 & Beyond!
Unreal Engine 5 is the next and latest iteration of the widely used (and successful) game engine. Developers have finally been able to get their hands on it and have already begun developing games using Unreal Engine 5. Unreal Engine 5 is the leading game engine because of its ease of use, amazing versatility, support, and overall power.
A lot of us have been able to at least experience a little taste of Unreal Engine 5 with The Matrix Awakens. The Unreal Engine 5 technology demo showed various new features and what Unreal Engine 5 is capable of. The following games are using Unreal Engine 5 and release sometime next year or have no release date at all. So with that in mind, let’s start the list off with a big one.
Senua’s Saga: Hellblade 2
Hellblade 2 is the sequel to the critically acclaimed Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice. Following in the footsteps of its predecessor, Hellblade 2 is a third-person narrative-driven action-adventure game. Senua’s Saga: Hellblade 2 was first shown in 2019 at The Game Awards. 2 years later, at The Game Awards 2021, we got our first glimpse of gameplay. Needless to say, it looks stunning.
With Hellblade 2 using the power of Unreal Engine 5 and Xbox Series X, the game is already shaping up to be one of the best-looking games for the console. Ninja Theory is back to developing Hellblade 2. It currently has no release date at the moment.
Redfall is a game with an interesting concept. It was announced and revealed with a cinematic trailer during the Xbox & Bethesda Games Showcase. Redfall is a co-op, open-world first-person shooter from Arkane Studios. The team behind the Dishonored franchise. While there is no gameplay, you can expect various abilities and smooth gameplay based on the developer’s track record.
Players will be able to choose between characters with a different set of abilities and team up with others to explore a deep and expansive world and hunt down scientifically created “vampires“. With Redfall utilizing Unreal Engine 5, I expect nothing but good things shortly.
Redfall is coming to Xbox Series X/S and PC sometime this Summer.
Black Myth: Wukong
Black Myth: Wukong went viral overnight when the first 13-minute gameplay trailer was released out of nowhere. Ever since then, gamers have been foaming out the mouth for more gameplay and deep dives. We have gotten a few gameplay videos. Back in August, we also got an Unreal Engine 5 gameplay trailer that showcases a few boss fights. The game looks stunning, especially for a game still in development.
The gameplay seems to play similar to Dark Souls and other similar games. We know Wukong will have abilities like creating clones and using his magical bo staff for different tactics. In the trailers, we also have a glimpse of what the story could be like. Even though it is based on the Journey to the West tale and Chinese mythology, there seems to be some originality and uniqueness to it as well.
Black Myth: Wukong currently has a release window of sometime in 2023. Game Science Studio plans to release it on PC and “mainstream consoles”.
Stalker 2: Heart of Chernobyl
Stalker 2 has been in development purgatory for a while. It was announced way back in 2011, but then it got canceled. Then it got picked up again. Now we finally have a release date. Not only a release date but gameplay footage as well. Stalker 2 is shaping up to be something special, considering the game was in limbo for a long time. The last Stalker game released in 2009. Making it more than 10 years since we have seen the series.
Stalker 2 had a fantastic showing when the gameplay trailer dropped. From the little of the story that we saw, it looks intriguing, and the characters seem likable. The original Stalker has a cult following; hopefully, the sequel pleases the fans and newcomers. The environments look beautifully bleak and dreary while still having a sense of wonder. Using Unreal Engine 5, you can see how the lighting enhances the atmosphere and scene the characters are in.
Stalker 2 will release on PC and Xbox Series X/S on April 28, 2022.
Dragon Quest XII: The Flames of Fate
Dragon Quest is a long-running RPG series, but this time it is taking a drastic turn. Square Enix unveiled Dragon Quest 12 during the Dragon Quest 35th Anniversary live stream. Nothing was shown other than the logo, but we do know that it will run on Unreal Engine 5. It will also be darker compared to the more colorful and happy vibes of the past games. The combat system is also changing a bit; again, they were very vague on the details.
Dragon Quest 12 has no release date or what systems it will be on.
ILL started as a project but seems to have developed into a full-fledged game. Taking inspiration from Resident Evil 7, ILL is a first-person horror game. ILL is Team Clout’s first game. So far, the game is looking scary and spine-chilling. One of the main reasons Team Clout is using Unreal Engine 5 to develop their game is because they want to make creatures and the human body transform and deform in real-time.
So far, ILL is only releasing for PC. There is no release date as of now. The game is being worked on part-time, so it is likely going to be a while before it is released.
With Unreal Engine 5 being new, it is amazing what some games have already achieved. A lot of these games have no set release date due to Unreal Engine 5 being new and a lot of developers just incorporating it into their game. There is one thing I know for sure, as time goes by, developers will push Unreal Engine 5 to its limit.
I am a gamer by day and by night. I started out writing game reviews for small online forums as a hobby way back in 2005. Since then, I have grown my knowledge for writing and gaming to continue my journey into something more.
