If you’ve been itching to give the Chaos Physics and Destruction System a try, without needing to compile source, this is the build for you! Now you can help us battle test and refine this system as we head towards a production-ready release.
Head to the Epic Games launcher and install Unreal Engine 4.26-Chaos Preview from the list of available versions in the install dropdown. In this binary build, Chaos replaces PhysX for all physics simulations, including cloth, vehicles, and destruction.
Note: 4.26-Chaos can be found at the bottom of the dropdown.
**Chaos-ready templates and demos **
Once you’ve downloaded the 4.26-Chaos Preview build, you can test drive the Vehicle and Advanced Vehicle templates with updated Chaos actors, and smash into the Chaos Destruction Demo, available on the Learn Tab. To get started with the Chaos Destruction Demo, you’ll need to follow these instructions on how to configure it for the new Preview.
