Unreal Engine 5 has been making waves since its worldwide release, whether it’s due to The Coalition’s cinematic test demo “The Cavern” or developers confirming its use for future projects. However, the engine has been getting a fair amount of traction since its early access release with numerous independent creators and fans building some truly stunning remakes and reimaginings of well-known franchises. Let’s take a look at 12 of the more impressive works here.
Mass Effect: Omega
The next Mass Effect is still a long way off but it could seemingly use Unreal Engine 5 based on a recent job listing (and from sources speaking to VentureBeat’s Jeff Grubb). In the meantime, why not imagine how Mass Effect 2’s Omega could look in the engine? Leo Torres had the same idea and used the engine to create a dynamically lit scene based on the overall atmosphere from the seedy destination. Though not based on a particular scene or section from the games, it does showcase what’s possible, especially with some gameplay thrown in.
