Epic Video games has been showcasing the upcoming Unreal Engine 5 with a sequence of spectacular tech demos, and now the protagonist from these demos is coming to Fortnite. Additionally, she’s apparently named Windwalker Echo.
Windwalker Echo is the previously unnamed character that has starred in Epic’s varied Unreal Engine 5 tech demos. This contains the Lumen within the Land of Nanite tech video that confirmed off the lighting and geometry software in addition to the Valley of the Historical tech demo.
Each Lumen within the Land of Nanite and Valley of the Historical are playable tech demos although there’s no plan to create a sport starring Windwalker Echo. However she’s going to not less than be playable in Fortnite beginning tonight.
Unreal Engine 5 is at present accessible in Early Entry and builders with an Unreal license are free to check and experiment. In the meantime, different studios are already lining as much as construct their subsequent sport in Unreal Engine 5 together with Gears studio The Coalition, and doubtlessly BioWare for the subsequent Mass Impact sport based mostly on current job listings.
Fortnite is about to finish its present Chapter 2 Season 7 occasion with a giant finale referred to as Operation: Sky Fireplace. A one-time-only occasion set for September 12 at 1 pm PT/4 pm ET that may end the combat in opposition to the alien invasion.
