3D artist Liam Tart has recreated the Shire from The Lord of the Rings in Unreal Engine 4. This fan-made custom map can give you an idea of what a new LOTR game could look like on Epic’s engine.
In order to create this scene, the artist used Truesky, as well as Speedtree and a limited use of Megascan overlays for some wood and stone materials.
The end result is amazing, so be sure to check out the following screenshots and video. Unfortunately, this map is not available for download so there is no way you can run it on your PC systems.
John is the founder and Editor in Chief at DSOGaming. He is a PC gaming fan and highly supports the modding and indie communities. Before creating DSOGaming, John worked on numerous gaming websites. While he is a die-hard PC gamer, his gaming roots can be found on consoles. John loved – and still does – the 16-bit consoles, and considers SNES to be one of the best consoles. Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2. John has also written a higher degree thesis on the “The Evolution of PC graphics cards.”
