So much so, that he has shared a video that you can see below with the result of such a surprising experiment; and it is that we remember that The Sims bases its artistic design on characters and objects closest to the cartoon style than the realist, so the change is even more drastic, if possible.
Virtually lifelike characters and environments
Thus, the user called Priymak Elysium has uploaded to his channel YouTube a kind of technical demo of an assumption The Sims 5 under Unreal Engine 5, including a graphical feature as fashionable today as the ray tracing. All this created from free kits distributed through the Epic Games Store; and what is shown in said video is more than surprising, as can be seen in the following video.
