STALKER Shadow of Chernobyl artwork

New STALKER in Unreal Engine 5 version available for download

Back in January, we informed you about an unofficial port of the first STALKER game, S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Shadow of Chernobyl, in Unreal Engine 5. And last week, Red Panda released a new beta version of it.

Now in case you didn’t know, Red Panda has successfully ported a part of STALKER in Unreal Engine 5. This project uses the original assets, and features all of the game’s maps. However, it does have some dialogue, an AI system, an inventory and a map. The project also has gunplay mechanics, meaning that you can shoot enemies.

What’s also cool here is that this project now comes with a UE5 Editor. By using this Editor, PC players can now modify the game to their liking. In theory, this may provide new custom free content to the project.

Unfortunately, there is still no word on when this unofficial Unreal Engine 5 version of STALKER will be fully completed. Nevertheless, you can go ahead and download its latest test build from here. Just make sure to temper your expectations.

Kudos to our reader “apan65” for bringing this to our attention!
