Epic Games is nearly ready to reveal its latest updates to Unreal Engine, its hugely popular suite of development tools. The company is hosting its 2023 State of Unreal keynote today, where it plans to “take a look at some new projects, dive into the latest Epic tech, and have some fun along the way.”

The keynote is taking place as part of this year’s Game Developers Conference, and the company’s tech talks following the keynote give some clues as to what might be discussed. A few sessions include Unreal Engine 5.2 in the title, so you can expect Epic will share some news on that during the keynote. If you want to see what’s possible with Unreal Engine 5.1, just hop into a match of Fortnite. And speaking of Fortnite, Epic is also promising to discuss the recently announced Unreal Editor for Fortnite, which could give creators many more tools to build custom experiences.

The State of Unreal livestream begins today at 12:30PM ET / 9:30AM PT, and you can watch it on Epic’s YouTube and Twitch channels. For more details, check out the company’s GDC 2023 website.
