It's amazing, isn't it. Getting ever closer to photorealism.

If you mean the objects; they are scanned. Probably the same kinda tech they use for our race tracks :)

But the engine is incredibly capable; the sheer calculating capacity is mind boggling.

And they use it for a shit of a game, where someone "realistically" climbs a vertical wall like it was at some 20-30 degree slope.  TBH it probably was exactly that at the modelling stage.  :D
I've lately realised, you do not need these hyper realistic gfx for a good game - in fact most good games don't have it.   But this look sells, even if the game itself is as shallow as it gets.

It's only a demo, but it's a good point. It's up the creatives to dream up a good use of this tech. We don't need more and more photorealistic rock faces to climb up just to find gems and get to some checkpoint. I did see some other Unreal 5 videos where the engine is used to provided realistic backdrops in film making, which is pretty amazing.
