3D artist Lorenzo Dominesco has shared a video, showcasing Angelina Jolie from Tomb Raider: Lara Croft in Unreal Engine 5. This video showcases what artists can achieve with Epic’s latest engine, and the end result is simply mind-blowing.
In order to create this character model, Lorenzo used Zbrush and 3dsmax. For the texturing, he used substance painter and mari. And finally, for the hair, the artist used Xgen from maya.
This is one of the most realistic characters we’ve ever seen and tops even the ones used in the Matrix Awakens demo. And, to be honest, I cannot imagine current-gen games having such highly detailed characters. This feels more like a next-gen character. Interestingly enough, the next Tomb Raider game (which will come out on current-gen platforms) will be using Unreal Engine 5. As such, it will be interesting to see whether Crystal Dynamics will be able to match its quality.
Speaking of Unreal Engine 5, we also suggest taking a look at the following videos. Right now, you can download a Superman UE5 Demo, a Halo 3: ODST Remake, and a Spider-Man UE 5 Demo. Moreover, these videos show Resident Evil, Star Wars KOTOR and Counter-Strike Global Offensive in UE5. Additionally, you can find a Portal Remake and an NFS3 Remake. And finally, here are Half Life 2 Fan Remake, World of Warcraft remake, Skyrim Remake, GTA San Andreas Remake, Doom 3 Remake, Zelda Ocarina of Time Remake, God of War Remake and GTA IV Remake.

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.”
