Need For Speed 3 Remaster in Unreal Engine 5 Rules

We really needed this remaster!

May 17, 2022

Without a doubt, Need For Speed 3 Hot Pursuit is one of the best racing games we have ever seen in the history of gaming, and probably one of the top-rated iterations of the NFS franchise by the community so far.

Delivering a Law vs. Outlaw format to the series for the first time, Need For Speed 3 was a unique and joyful experience for all arcade racing fans back in the day.

Unfortunately, Electronic Arts has not been kind enough towards the older entries of the franchise, including Need For Speed 3. We have never received a remake or remaster from the early entries of the franchise.


That being said, there are always some talents in every video game community who take the responsibility of keeping the game alive over time.

David Kerekes is the modder behind this creative project as he has used the original models of Need For Speed 3 to recreate a brief but brilliant experience of driving a supercar in Need For Speed 3 with enhanced visuals.

While it only includes two maps and a single car, it’s already a favorite project for the old-school fans of the Need For Speed series. Thanks to all the cutting-edge tools in Unreal Engine 5, this project already looks like an official remaster with incredibly beautiful lighting and shadows.

Unfortunately, the creator did not reveal whether they would continue this project to add more circuits and cars. It’s not available to the public at the moment and we don’t if the developer would ever share it on the internet. Regarding the possible copyright issues, however, we can assume that this remaster will probably never be available to the public.

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