Horror game lovers and enthusiasts have received a glimpse of what some new gameplay looks like on the Unreal Engine 5 and needless to say, they are more than thrilled at the possibilities it holds for the future. 

So much so that they have begun asking for more to be done with the engine, specifically fans who want to see what this engine can produce in the horror genre. And considering what we will be looking at today, it's no wonder why the Unreal Engine 5 gameplay has left P.T fans in awe and wanting more. 

Unreal Engine 5 Environment gameplay demo 

The Unreal Engine 5 has just been released recently in April 2022, and with it, a technical demo for The Matrix Awakens. This was impressive and truly showcased what the engine was capable of, but it's been taken to a whole new level by artist Lorenzo Drago

Lorenzo released a small gameplay demo just a few days ago showcasing a hyper-realistic environment based on a real-life Etchu-Daimon train station in Toyama, Japan. This was met with awe and amazement from fans as they noted how it was nearly indistinguishable from the actual train station and more notably, how it opens the door for what could possibly be to come with the Unreal Engine 5.

The aspect of this demo that leans toward scratching the itch for Horror fans is most definitely the part of the demo that switches to night-time. The way it looks and the lighting effects contrasted with high fidelity details in the environment harkens to the 2014 release of P.T, the playable teaser for the new Silent Hill game that featured hyper-realistic visuals and a terrifying premise.

Unfortunately, P.T. was never fully released due to some conflicts between the Director and Designer Hideo Kojima and Konami, but with the new look at the Unreal Engine 5, we may see horror games on par with P.T. or even better in the years to come. 

Fans have responded extremely positively to this new demo, and it goes to show that the fans who adored P.T. are desperate for a new release to create the same feelings they experience when first playing it. While others are just awestruck at the technical mastery that went into creating Lorenzo's demo, and for good reason. 

Thanks to Unreal Engine 5 being an open-source powerhouse enabling artists like Lorenzo to bring their visions to life. We look forward to the next generation of gaming that marries fans being able to support developers whose work they love, and developers receiving the support and popularity they deserve for the incredible work they do.
