A game engine is a software framework specifically designed for the development of video games and generally incorporates suitable libraries and support programs to help with game production. Game engines are wholly responsible for shaping the gaming industry into the multi-billion dollar industry it has evolved in this decennium.
Unreal Engine (UE) is a game engine developed by Tim Sweeney, the founder of Epic Games. In the beginning, the engine leaned entirely on software rendering; in other words, the CPU managed the graphics calculations. Nevertheless, over time, it was able to exploit the aptitude of dedicated graphics cards.
The Unreal series has been a stellar success for Epic Games and games alike, and it has been adopted in various popular titles. First showcased in the 1998 first-person shooter game Unreal.
Although initially designed for the PC FPS genre, it has been effectively utilized in a multitude of genres, counting 3rd-person stealth, fighting games, platformers, and MMORPG.
The latest iteration, Unreal Engine 5, was launched in April 2022, as its ancestor was released in March 2014. Popular games made in Unreal Engines include Fortnite, Tekken 7, SoulCalibur 6, Injustice 2, Dragon Ball FighterZ, Darksiders 3, XCOM 2, Dragon Quest XI, Final Fantasy 7 remake, and Kingdom Hearts 3, to name a few.
