The most anticipated Unreal Engine 5 games

Epic Games’ latest generation of Unreal Engine has brought with it some revolutionary technology that will make games even more photorealistic.

Here are some of the most anticipated titles that are currently being built in Unreal Engine 5 (UE5).


ARK II is the sequel to the popular survival sandbox game ARK: Survival Evolved.

Like the first ARK, there will be plenty of dinosaurs and intimidating humanoid enemies to face off against, but this time you might come face to face with Vin Diesel too.

Black Myth: Wukong — 2023

Black Myth: Wukong is yet another adaptation of the classic Journey to the West novel involving the Monkey King’s exploits.

Despite Black Myth: Wukong’s gameplay reveal being posted in 2020, the new third-person action RPG does not have a release date yet.

Echoes of the End — TBA

Echoes of the End is a single-player action-adventure game where players control Ryn, a former royal warrior.

Although Echoes of the End doesn’t have a release date yet, Myrkur Games has revealed its ambitions to seamlessly integrate high-fidelity cinematics with gameplay, similar to God of War.

Hell Is Us — TBA

Hell Is Us is a third-person action-adventure game set in a semi-open world filled with supernatural creatures.

To fight these supernatural creatures, players will have to use a drone and specialised weapons, including swords, spears, and axes.

There will be no map, markers, or compass for players to use, lending itself to a more immersive gameplay experience.

Redfall — September 2022

Arkane’s Redfall is a four-player co-op open-world survival shooter in which players must liberate a town from a horde of Vampires.

The game will feature different playable heroes, and each will have unique abilities to help in the fight against blood-thirsty supernatural enemies.

S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2: Heart of Chornobyl — 8 December

S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2 is the sequel to the acclaimed first-person post-apocalyptic survival horror shooter, S.T.A.L.K.E.R.

The game will feature a non-linear branching story with a massive amount of weapon customisation and immersive survival mechanics to keep players engaged for hours on end.

Senua’s Saga: Hellblade 2 — TBA

Senua’s Saga: Hellblade 2 is set to improve on every aspect of the first game.

Senua’s character model and the in-game world looks even more photorealistic than before, and the sequel will still feature the same mind-bending binaural sound design as the original.

Tomb Raider sequel — TBA

The next Tomb Raider game doesn’t even have a name yet, so that should tell you enough about the game’s current stage of development.

However, if you consider the Tomb Raider trilogy’s excellent location choices and that Crystal Dynamics is using UE5 to build the sequel, we certainly have some eye candy waiting for us in the future.

Witcher sequel — TBA

CD Projekt Red announced that it would switch from using its in-house REDengine to UE5 for developing the upcoming new Witcher game.

Any other details regarding the new game are sparse, but a teaser image indicates that we might see players take on the role of a new Witcher.

Whether the latest game unfolds before or after Geralt’s exploits remains to be seen.
