Remember the unofficial port of STALKER to Unreal Engine 5? Well, apparently, there is another similar project. This new STALKER in Unreal Engine 5 project developed by RedProjects looks ambitious and there is a build you can download right now.
This new UE5 project will support the entire STALKER trilogy. That way, once it’s completed, you’ll be able to play Shadows of Chernobyl, Clear Sky, and Call of Pripyat.
It’s also worth noting that this is not a simple Unreal Engine 5 port of STALKER. Instead, RedProjects describes it as a hybrid. All internal processes, NPC behavior logic, shooting, quests and A-Life are taken from the original X-Ray engine. However, the graphic part has been replaced by Unreal Engine 5.
In this public release of this project, the entire Zone from Shadow of Chernobyl is fully functional. The level logic, quests, gunplay, and A-Life simulation work flawlessly. However, there are some minor bugs. For example, due to an unfinished mounting system, the lantern remains in Sidorovich’s bunker and does not follow the player. And while the player’s weapons and hands are not displayed, shooting and interaction are fully functional.
You can download this new STALKER project in Unreal Engine 5 directly from our site where torrent download is available. Below you will also find some screenshots from it. These screenshots will give you an idea of what you can expect from it. Since this project uses default game assets, don’t expect miracles. However, you will immediately notice the more advanced lighting system courtesy of UE5.
