NEXON has launched the closed beta phase for its third-person co-op action RPG shooter, The First Descendant. The First Descendant is the first game using Unreal Engine 5 that we can get our hands on, and below you can find a video showing 34 minutes of gameplay from it.
In The First Descendant, you can play as Descendants who inherited unknown powers that make them stronger to fight against the invaders and protect humans.
In order to capture the following footage, YouTube’s ‘K-O-Haj’ used an Intel Core i9 12900KF with 32GB of RAM and an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4090. K-O-Haj set the game’s settings to Ultra, and used NVIDIA’s DLSS 2 Quality Mode.
At 4K/DLSS Quality, the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4090 can push over 100fps. The game also appears to have great visuals (though I wouldn’t call them next-gen). Still, it’s at least pleasing to the eye. Moreover, this is our first taste of a game using Unreal Engine 5. And, from the looks of it, this Unreal Engine 5-powered also suffers from shader compilation stutters.
Enjoy the video!

While he is a die-hard PC gamer, his gaming roots can be found on consoles. John loved – and still does – the 16-bit consoles, and considers SNES to be one of the best consoles. Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2. John has also written a higher degree thesis on the “The Evolution of PC graphics cards.”
