Unreal Engine 5 is supposed to bring the future of gaming to PC and consoles, and it already has top-notch water simulation in Derelicts.
Recently, an indie developer shared some footage from their work-in-progress game based on Unreal Engine 5, focusing specifically on the engine’s power in simulating water, which was brought to life by Krystian Komisarek, another indie developer that is part of the project.
Derelicts is a survival game on Unreal Engine 5, and if you take a look at its Steam page, it already looks like a solid project from a small indie team. However, what makes it stands out from the other competitor is probably the developer’s focus on details in simulating the environment.
The water footage above is absolutely something incredible that you can barely find in the recent AAA projects. Although it’s yet to be seen how well this could be optimized at launch, it’s already a proud achievement for the team behind Derelicts and another sign of UE5’s crazy power.
Currently, there is no official release date for Derelicts, but we will probably hear more about it in the future!
