YouTube’s ‘Silent34’ has shared a video, showcasing Silent Hill 2 in Unreal Engine 5. Basically, Silent34 has exported the assets from Silent Hill 2 and then used them to recreate a couple of scenes in Unreal Engine 5. Silent34’s goal was to push the original game to its limits with a modern game engine.
In order to improve the game’s original textures, the artist also used AI techniques. Additionally, Silent34 used some ray tracing reflections. Not only that, but he added dynamic shadows and an improved lighting system. Furthermore, this fan project has both first-person and third-person perspectives (alongside the traditional/classic viewpoint from the original game).
The end result is a game that looks very similar to the original Silent Hill 2 game. After all, it uses pretty much all of its assets. So I guess you can think of it as a remastered version of SH2 (though technically this is a remake as it was created from scratch).
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 is a Half Life 2 Fan Remake, an Oblivion fan remake, a World of Warcraft remake, a Skyrim remake, a Grand Theft Auto San Andreas Remake, a Doom 3 Remake, and a Zelda Ocarina of Time UE5 Remake, a God of War Remake and a GTA IV Remake
