There's a new life simulator coming in 2024 and its hyper-realistic graphics are wowing players everywhere. Using Unreal Engine 5, there's no surprise this game looks a little 'uncanny valley'.
The first images and trailers make the sim look like a cross between The Sims and Grand Theft Auto. You have the same requirements from The Sims - hunger, tiredness - but you also have a fully realised world to explore and interact with, which feels like the living, breathing cities we're so used to in Grand Theft Auto.
Take a look at InZoi in action below.
InZoi is being touted as a life sim with a "Korean twist" as it hails from a South Korean developer, the same one responsible for now overseeing PUBG: Battlegrounds. From the trailer, we see player characters exploring a city, working a 9 to 5 job, socialising and doing all of those monotonous chores typical of a life sim.
What stands out is the realistic graphics; every environment and player model is meticulously created to convey a sense of 'real life'. Everything looks shiny, perfect and can be tweaked to suit your ideal world. This applies to the avatars and the households which all look as if they belong on the cover of Vogue.
There's not a great deal of information out there as yet, but internal interviews with the game's producer does shed some light on the game's core gameplay. Hyungjun Kim has said that the player character is hired as an intern at a company where you seemingly choose a profession before then controlling their life down to the smallest detail.
InZoi even has a 'director mode' which allows players to control the world around their 'Zoi', from building the perfect apartment, to changing billboards in the city centre, or modifying the city itself. There is no information on which platforms InZoi will release.
