Video game graphics have reached a level where it is really difficult to distinguish what is reality and what is fiction — and Bodycam is a great example of this, as it shows the great explosive potential of Unreal Engine 5. Released in early access on Steam earlier this month, the independent game is currently enjoying great success on the platform.

Bodycam is described as an ultra-realistic first-person shooter with multiplayer capabilities. As well as Unrecordanother title that also shocked the public due to its insane graphics, the game is being developed based on Epic Games’ powerful graphics engine.

The fact is that now that powerful engines like UE5 are available to teams of all sizes, many interesting projects are being presented to the public. The very Bodycamfor example, is developed by Reissad Studio, an independent studio that has only two developers (one is 17 and the other is 20 years old). So there is a vast blue ocean in the niche for the next few years!

5 games with ultra-realistic Bodycam-style graphics

Well, it is a fact that games of this genre have been attracting more and more enthusiasts. In addition to Bodycamthere are many other options that may surprise you — especially if you are a fan of horror games!

Thinking about these titles, the Voxel separated five of the best bodycam style games — with some of them already available to play on PC and others still to come. Check out the names below!

5. Gray Zone Warfare

Betting heavily on a bold look, Gray Zone Warfare is a tactical, intense and realistic FPS in which you will provide services for a private military company. The game is available for PC (Steam).

It is set on a fictional Southeast Asian island where the entire area has been placed under international quarantine. With nearly all of the civilian population evacuated by the United Nations, three private military companies are tasked by enigmatic clients to explore the region, uncover its secrets, and bring back anything of value.

Players can explore a vast and rich organic open world through PvEvP and PvE modes. Here, every action can be decisive and every confrontation can result in the loss of your equipment and earned progress — so think carefully before making any rash decisions.

4. Lost Fragment

Lost Fragment is being developed by Nihil Inane Studio and, without a doubt, it may be one of the most realistic horror games on the market. Like the titles mentioned above, it is also developed in Unreal Engine 5 and brings an impressive representation of an abandoned hospital full of photorealistic textures and impressive lighting.

Its first trailer doesn’t show much, other than the main character with a bodycam walking around an abandoned hospital in Japan. The first-person camera is perfectly calibrated to immerse you in this terrifying world — not to mention the subtle noises that will scare the living daylights out of you. Lost Fragment It’s set to arrive on PC next year and has a lot of potential!

3. Unrecord

Mentioned at the beginning of the text, Unrecord puts players in the shoes of a police officer as he embarks on a mission to solve a complex case full of mystery and intrigue. The title was one of the first to appear on social media — and is one of the main reasons why bodycam-style games became popular.

Developed by Drama studio, Unrecord It also features jaw-dropping graphics and gameplay that works in an extremely realistic way — each shot is accompanied by a vigorous recoil and camera shake.

This essentially means that players will need to be aware of their surroundings and carefully assess the situation before firing a shot. This, of course, is a welcome change of pace in the first-person shooter formula. The game does not yet have a release date, but it will be coming to PC (Steam).

2. Don’t Scream

Developed in Unreal Engine 5 by just two people, Don’t Scream It has a simple premise, but its biggest difference is the microphone feature, which detects players’ screams of fright — consequently, causing an impact on the gameplay.

Here, players explore the eerie Pineview Forest during a session that lasts about 18 minutes. The main goal is to not let a single scream escape your mouth, but if you do, the game will record even the quietest sounds through your microphone — if you’re discovered, the session will be reset.

In addition to betting heavily on ultra-realistic graphics, the game also has a bodycam-style perspective — which makes the experience even more immersive. Don’t Scream is currently available in Early Access on Steam.

1. Paranormal Tales

Paranormal Tales is a collection of different horror stories, each played out from a first-person perspective with a bodycam-style camera. Different stories are captured by different cameras, so you can play the vignette through the lens of a VHS camera or even a smartphone camera, for example.

Of course, the scenarios are extremely realistic and the art direction helps to establish a very uncomfortable environment. The game is being developed by Digital Cybercherries and will arrive on PC at a date yet to be revealed by the studio.
