YouTube’s ‘JacktheLightning’ has shared a cool video, showcasing Metal Gear Solid being recreated in Unreal Engine 5. For this fan remake concept video, JacktheLightning and BrokenK4ppa have recreated the iconic heliport scene.
In case you don’t remember, this is the scene where Solid Snake gets to see for the first time Liquid Snake while he flies an Hind-D. And, to be honest, it looks kind of cool. It’s also a nice touch to use the original music and voice lines.
Now while this remake retains the art style of the original game. In order to enhance the lighting, JacktheLightning and BrokenK4ppa have also used Unreal Engine 5’s Lumen. However, the 3D model of Solid Snake is a bit disappointing. Don’t get me wrong, for a fan project it’s good. However, I’ve seen better custom 3D models for Snake.
Anyway, speaking of Unreal Engine 5, we suggest downloading these other fan remakes. For instance, you can download a Superman UE5 Demo, a Halo 3: ODST Remake, and a Spider-Man UE 5 Demo. There is also a fan remake of Halo: Combat Evolved’s “Halo” level. And then we have The Lord of the Rings: Conquest Reimagined in Unreal Engine 5 and The Legend of Zelda Ocarina of Time in Unreal Engine 5.
