Who’s up for an Alien Isolation remake in Unreal Engine 5?

While we can’t wait to see the first batch of Unreal Engine 5-based games released, modders have already taken it to another level with their tech demos and sample creations.

Previously, we did share some incredible creations around Cyberpunk 2077 and Grand Theft Auto San Andreas Remake in Unreal Engine 5, but have you ever thought about how horror games could evolve using Epic’s brand new engine?

While that already sounds pretty scary, a YouTuber has recently shared some footage from a new UE5-based demo project, showing off the reimagination of Alien Isolation with the next-gen visuals.


A Next-Gen Alien Game on Unreal Engine 5 Could Give You a Heart Attack!

As the video games keep growing visually with the new version of Unreal Engine, you can expect to face some intense experiences in the near future when it comes to horror games.

Alien Isolation was one of the most-praised horror titles of the last generation of consoles, but unfortunately, it never received a sequel. Now, this reimagination of Alien in Unreal Engine 5 could really make you wish for a next-gen remake of Isolation as it looks breathtaking!

The footage above is a joint effort from multiple artists, whose creations have been assembled together in Unreal Engine 5 and turned into an amazing tech demo. You can check out the creators behind this footage here by taking a look at the descriptions of the video.

But seriously, I can’t wait for an Unreal Engine 5-powered horror game to set a new bar in this genre. The last generation of consoles hosted a bunch of incredible horror games such as Resident Evil 7, Outlast 2, The Evil Within 2, and Amnesia: Rebirth, and it would be exciting to see any of these franchises getting a true next-gen entry in the near future.

Unreal Engine 5 is now available for free on PC via Epic Games Launcher.
