Unreal Engine 5 is the latest iteration of Epic Games’ video game engine. Since its launch, the company has continued to improve it and make ith the best possible tool for video game development. During the State of Unreal keynote at GDC 2023, Epic Games showed off how other developers are using Unreal Engine to make their games. It was here that Kabam revealed King Arthur: Legends Rise, a new RPG built in Unreal Engine 5.
