Now here is something that completely passed under my radar. Last year, YouTube’s “exo7341” released a prototype remaster of the first classic Unreal game in Unreal Engine 4. And this is so cool that it definitely deserves your attention.
I know, I know, shame on me for not discovering this project earlier. However, you should also be ashamed for not informing me about something this cool. So yeah, shame on you too.
But anyway, this Unreal Prototype Remaster features seven maps. From what I could see, the Vortex Rikers, Rrajigar Mine and Depths of Rrajigar are almost finished. On the other hand, Kran Deck 4, Outpost 3J, Bluff and Nali Castle are full of placeholder textures. This is kind of a bummer as I’d love to see an updated version of the Nali Castle.
Now what’s cool here is that exo7341 has implemented proper gameplay mechanics. There are also numerous enemies in the finished maps with AI routines. And yes, this prototype gives you weapons in order to fight them.
Seriously, if you are fans of the original Unreal game, you’ll definitely like it. You can download the prototype from here.
