Upcoming Unreal Engine games

The Unreal Engine has been pushing graphical boundaries for years now, and stacks of great games have been made using the engine.

Not only does the engine enjoy great community support, it is also quite easy to use (or so I have heard).

Looking ahead, there are some exciting titles due to be released, created using Unreal. These are some of the Unreal games we can look forward to.

Fable Legends

  • Developer: Lionhead Studios
  • Release Date: TBA 2015

Fable Legends presents new adventures, new RPG mechanics, and co-op multiplayer action – all of which should entice old and new fans of the Fable series.

The game revolves around four heroes who are on a quest to defeat an evil villain (another player), who can lay traps and spawn enemies to try and defeat them. It is a new direction for the series, and here’s hoping it is a success.

The Fable Legends beta is due to be released for Xbox One before the end of 2014.


  • Developer: Epic Games
  • Release Date: TBA 2015

Fortnite has been in the wild for some time now, and is hopefully going to be released before the end of 2015. The game is a third-person shooter which sees players dropped into a world where demons spawn through portals.

Fortnite is all about defending your base while fighting off the aforementioned demons, which requires scavenging for resources during the day and staying alive at night.

Unreal Tournament

  • Developer: Epic Games
  • Release Date: TBA

This is the one we have been waiting for – the new Unreal Tournament. The latest entry into the franchise was recently revealed as a free-to-play title which is being put together, in part, by the Unreal Engine community.

The game is said to be the most open title in the series, and everything Unreal Tournament offers can be changed to some degree. Let the countdown begin.


  • Developer: Realtime Worlds
  • Release Date: TBA 2015

We recently learned that a new Crackdown was in the works, and is due to be released on the Xbox One before the end of 2015. The game is said to boast new mechanics, and promises open-world, over-the-top action.

With Dave Jones leading the game’s development, it will definitely be a great success.


  • Developer: Tequila Works
  • Release Date: TBA 2014

After Microsoft was offered Rime and turned it down, Sony revealed that the title would be a PS4 exclusive. Rime is all about exploring amazing environments while solving puzzles and learning the history of a great civilization.

The game will also feature day and night cycles, with different enemies threatening your existence at different times of the day.

Let it Die

  • Developer: Grasshopper Manufacturer
  • Release Date: TBA 2015

The concept behind Let it Die is intriguing. Every time you die in the game world you leave a ghost of yourself behind. These ghosts can be robbed of their gear and used by living players.

The point of this, ostensibly, is that dying in a game is not really a bad thing, and should be taken advantage of.
