STALKER Yantar in Unreal Engine 5

STALKER’s Yantar looks glorious in Unreal Engine 5 with Lumen

YouTube’s ‘M0riarti’ has shared a video, showcasing Yantar from the first STALKER game in Unreal Engine 5. This video can give us an idea of what a modern-day remaster of S.T.A.L.K.E.R. could look like. So, be sure to check it out.

In order to recreate this location, the modder used a lot of high-resolution textures. Moreover, M0riarti took advantage of UE5’s Lumen. As such, everything in this video looks top-notch.

To be honest, I’d really love to see such a remaster of the first STALKER in UE5. We do know that STALKER 2 will be using Unreal Engine 5. So, it would be cool if GSC GameWorld decided to remaster/remake this classic FPS in UE5. That is of course after the release of S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2.

For those unaware, some modders are trying to bring the first STALKER in UE5. However, this unofficial attempt is nowhere close to the visuals displayed here.

Back in March 2023, we shared another fan remake video of STALKER in UE5. So, if you are a die-hard STALKER fan, I highly recommend watching it too.
