Half-Life fans unite – today we have a rather impressive unofficial Half-Life 2 Unreal Engine 5 concept video.
Another day, another Unreal Engine 5 showcase, but we’re pretty sure that fans will appreciate this Half-Life 2 recreation within Epic’s new game engine. Created by ‘TeaserPlay’, this fan concept video uses Unreal Engine 5’s Nanite, Lumen, and Ray Tracing. In addition, Metahuman was used for both G-Man and Gordon Freeman. The showcase also packs some gameplay, and the video is pretty impressive overall. Half-Life fans will likely recognize some environments from the original Half-Life 2, which ‘TeaserPlay’ recreated in the video.
Unfortunately, this is merely an unofficial fan concept video and there are currently no plans to release it as a public demo. Still, the video shows the potential of Unreal Engine 5 and also how a proper remake of Valve’s iconic game could look like on current-gen systems (and yes, this will likely never happen).
