‘Alpha Point’ is the studio’s first tech demo created entirely in Unreal Engine 5.
It was originally presented by The Coalition’s technical director Kate Rayner and technical art director Colin Penty at GDC 2021 last week, and you can watch the full session at the bottom of this page.
“With Gears 5 pushing graphics to all new heights with Unreal Engine 4 back in 2019, the team is looking to the future and demonstrated an early look at what’s possible with Unreal Engine 5 on Xbox Series X|S,” Microsoft said.
The Coalition’s GDC session also featured the following real-time character rendering test running on Xbox Series X.
The studio said in May that it was preparing to transition to next-gen development using Unreal Engine 5, but that it wasn’t planning to announce any new games in the near future.
“Shifting to a new engine is a big undertaking, so we want to be clear that we will not be announcing any new projects or titles for some time,” it said.
It recently emerged that the LinkedIn profile of one of The Coalition’s level designers claimed they had been working on a “new IP” for six months, although the employee later removed the listing from their profile.
In May, Epic Games revealed an Unreal Engine 5 tech demo called Valley of the Ancient. It also released Unreal Engine 5 in early access, which developers can download from the Epic Games launcher.
