The upcoming Unreal Engine 5 has today entered Early Access for game developers, and as part of this, Epic Games has shared another look at the UE5 tools in action, including footage of it running on Xbox Series X.

First, let's get to that Xbox Series X footage. You can see it in the video above, which is timestamped, as well as a still shot in the tweet below. It's only a quick look, but showcases the engine running in real time on the hardware.

The video then goes on to highlight the tools that developers will be using with Unreal Engine 5, featuring Epic's newest sample project titled "Valley of the Ancient", serving as a "rich and practical example of how the new features in Unreal Engine 5 Early Access can be used."

As you'd expect, this produces some pretty stunning results, and the highlight is undoubtedly The Ancient - a film quality creature imagined and built by the Aaron Sims Creative Company - who serves as the visual spectacle for the project.

The current plan is now for Unreal Engine 5 to get a full release to developers in early 2022, and various studios such as The Coalition, Ninja Theory and InXile have confirmed they'll be migrating over as soon as possible.
