Video games continue to prove their ability to go well beyond just an interesting pastime. Instead, they’ve appeared in work combating PTSD for veterans, supported military training efforts, and demonstrated the importance of security perimeters.

During this session with Nextgov, we explore the power of gaming in government and spotlight one example, the potential path Unreal Engine 5 is making on Mars exploration.
