Crabs!!! CRABS

It's Thursday, and you know what that means: it's time for crab news.

First, a bit of backstory: Unreal Engine, created by Fortnite developer Epic, has been used by game studios since at least 1998. Games such as Rocket League, Bioshock, Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons and Dragon Quest XI were all built using Unreal Engine 3 and 4, and now it's time for the next big update: Unreal Engine 5.

Unreal Engine 5 was just released in Early Access, which means interested developers can play around with it before the full release next year. But that doesn't answer our most important question about this new Unreal Engine version: how many crabs can it render?

The answer is, according to Crab Champions (a crab-based survival combat game), at least three million. Did the answer surprise you? Well, if it did, you don't know much about crabs. They bloody LOVE being in massive groups. In fact, three million is a relatively small gathering.

But what this does mean is that Unreal Engine 5 is powerful as HECK, and who knows what kind of games we'll be getting in a few years as a result? Just imagine: instead of crabs, it could be Marios. Or Toads. Or Pikmins! The possibilities are limitless.

Anyway, that's your Thursday crab news. Please return next Thursday for more.
